What poetic devices have you found in the poem?
the poetic devices i have found so far:
Alliteration - "What i was walling in or walling out"
Parallelism "The wall between us"
Simile "In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed"
i need 10 altogether, and i can use a poetic device more than once.
are these right so far?
Those look great to me!
i just found 5 more, could you please check if theyre right?
Alliteration "And some are loaves and some so nearly balls"
Internal Rhyme "There where it is we do not need the wall"
Alliteration “But it’s not elves exactly”
Repetition “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall”
Repetition “Good fences make good neighbors"
how could i explain this poem in one or two sentances?
how could i explain the message the poet is expressing to us in at least 8 sentances?
This is what i have so far:
The message that the poet is expressing to us has both a literal and metaphoric meaning. There is the literal meaning of building a wall, and a deeper metaphoric meaning, which is that the wall is a barrier that separates the neighbours in their friendship. The mending of the wall ironically brings the neighbours together and literally builds their friendship, proven by the phrase “Good fences make good neighbours”.
is this good so far?
is there anything else that you think i should add?
