Example: the movie "Snow White" alludes to the biblical story of Adam and Eve. Snow White is an innocent girl who lives in the forest. The witch, who represents Satan, tricks her into eating the apple which refers to the forbidden fruit in Adam and Eve. Snow White eats the apple and as a punishment for doing so, she falls into a deep sleep.
Example: in the poem Bells by Edgar Allan Poe it has assonance in the second stanza. "Hear the wedding bells, Golden bells! What a world of happiness their harmony foretells. Through the balmy air of night, how they ring out their delight! From the molten-golden notes,and in tune. What a liquid ditty floats. To the turtle-dove that listens , while she gloats.
Example:"Shelly sells seashells by the seashore."
Example: Here is a passage from chapter 2 of Facing the Hunchback of Notre Dame: "And we'll need you to dress fifteenth-century French. I have just the items,"said Augustus as he joined them, arranging his poplin suit just so. He rearranged his silverware to perfection, then picked uo the fork.

You turned around, and you stole my heart
