Homework Help: English Lit

Posted by Jamie on Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 4:48pm.

I'm not great at identifying some of these figures of speech for English Please check my answers or offer suggestions
1."As flies to the wanton boys are we to the gods: they kill us for sport" Shakespeare for King Lear
Is this a simile, metaphor, personification, hyberbole, litotes, none of the above-I think this is a simile but then again I think it is an analogy but that isn't a choice
2. "And here we are as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight
Where ignorant armies clash by night
By Matthew Arnol in Dover Beach
Choices were simile, metaphor, personification, analogy, litotes, none
Would this be personifcation-compare we to a darling plain?
