Homework Help: Gifted+Talented English-(Figurative Speech Poetry)

Posted by Brenna on Monday, December 1, 2008 at 4:33pm.

Our assignment is to write a poem on each of the types of figurative speech.

simile
metaphor
synecdoche
metonymy
personification
apostrophe
hyperbole
understatement
irony
paradox

I have completed every one of them except understatement and paradox. I understand what they are. I just can't seem to figure out how to incorporate them into a poem. Can you help give me some ideas?

Thanks so much!
Brenna
