Hyperbole

Satisfactory Essays
A poetic device that the speaker uses is Hyperbole. The speaker states " A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee." This is an exaggeration, however it fits perfectly with this poem. Because it helps to create imagery and it helps to put an idea into the readers head about what happens to Annabel lee. The speaker also uses shifts, in order to jump from past tense to present tense. For example at the start of this poem, he describes this girl named Annabel lee whom he was in love with. But as the poem progresses the time periods begin to change. He describes her death, how angry he became, and how he deals with it.
