does "Naett, that is the dry tornado, the hard clasp of lightning" sound like a sound device, type of figurative language, setting, or characterization to you? I think it is figurative language. Naett is the name of a person being praised in a poem. Also, does the first half of "Telephone Conversation" sound like it is mocking, angry, incredulous, or depressed? I think it is angry. Please check my answers asap, as they may be totally wrong.

  1. "... the hard clasp of lightning" is definitely a sound device. It's probably intended to be a form called onomatopoeia. (pronounced ah-no-mah-tow-pea'-ah)

    I don't see how Naett is any sound device.

    I haven't read the work you've named. Sorry.
