how do i find the literary device in this poem?
Her beam on the waves,
I gazed awhile
On her cold smile
Too cold-too cold for me-\
There pass'd as a shroud
A fleecy cloud,
And i turned away to thee,
Proud Evening Star
That's not the whole poem. If you don't consider the WHOLE POEM, you'll never get it.
Who is "Her" referring to?
Who do you think "I" is? (And don't tell me it's Poe!!)
What images come to your mind's eye as you read THE ENTIRE POEM?
Make notes and lists. Let us know what you come up with.
