Literary Devices

I had a request for a review of some literary devices before the STAAR, so here’s a good Wikipedia page. In my opinion, some of the major ones you might want to review are:

  • flashback
  • foreshadowing
  • in media res
  • first-person, second-person, third-person narration
  • hyperbole
  • imagery
  • sensory detail
  • tone
  • irony
  • symbolism
  • theme

Would you share this on whatever social media platforms you use, for the classes with whom I didn’t get to discuss this? (According to fourth period, Edmodo is where you guys all hang out on the Internet.)
