Writing -  Shakespeare: Macbeth - Figurative Language (Simile and Personification)

Today's lesson which is found here is about figurative language. What is figurative language you might ask, well we know it as personification and simile

Personification, the clue is in the name, tries to describe objects with human like qualities, to make it sound like a person:

  • Her heart raced (well it can not race)
  • The branch tapped the window with its long crooked finger. Does a tree have a finger? Does it tap on windows?

Simile, here we make things sound similar to one another. We use the words ...like... or as...as... to compare two items that share the same idea/colour/size etc. 

  • The fire was as hot as the sun.
  • The car was red like a rose.
