Title: Figurative Devices Revision

Task: You have been issued a double-sided revision sheet on Figurative Devices. This:

  • Names an important figurative device

  • Gives examples of potential effect on the reader

You must revise from this sheet, quizzing and requizzing yourself in your exercise book so that you are able to:

  1. identify a device in a text
  2. provide potential effects on the reader

Explanation: Figurative devices are used by writers for a specific effect, attempting to engage the reader, draw their attention to an important idea, reflect the theme or simply to create a vivid image in the reader’s mind.

Understanding the effect of these devices is the key to developing a deep response to texts.
