For each of the following, identify what figure of speech, if any, is being used. In several cases, it might be argued that more than one exists. In those cases, you will identify only the primary figure.

My brother has grown a great deal in the last year. He is almost as tall as I am now.

I think this is a metaphor.

Death, be not proud, though some have callÚd thee

Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;

--John Donne

I think this is personification.

Thanks!
