Figurative language analysis

In the poem The Cremation of Sam McGee the three devices that are used are

Similes, Personification and Onomatopoeia to make you feel emotion and imagine what

it is like. In this poem there was a group of men who was looking for gold in the Arctic.

There were two men that became friends along the way, one of them hated the cold and

his name was Sam McGee. He told his friend to make him a promise of when he died of

the cold that he would cremate his last remains. He later then did that and it became

harder to do along the way. Once he did cremate him and he went crazy after he checked

on the body. The three devices that are used are Similes, Personification and

Onomatopoeia to make you feel emotion and imagine what it is like.

In this poem, the author uses similes to create an imagery in the reader's mind. One

example of a simile in this poem is he always cold, but the land of gold seemed to hold him like

a spell.This is a simile because the author is comparing a land of gold and a spell and uses the

word like. Another example of simile in this poem is Talk of your cold! Through the parka's

fold it stabbed like a driven nail. This is an example of a simile because the author compares the

cold and a driven nail using the word like. Similes create a picture in the reader's mind.

In this poem, the author uses personification to entertain the reader. One example of

personification is my lips are very dumb. This is an example of personification because they

are comparing lips to being dumb, lips are not living, so they cannot be dumb. The author also

states, The Northern Lights have seen queer sights. Because of this we know that the northern

lights cannot see, so therefore they are being personified. Personification engages the reader

through the poem.

In this poem the author uses Onomatopoeia to make the reader to feel emotion. One

example of onomatopoeia is I didn't like to hear him sizzle so. This is an example of

onomatopoeia because the word sizzle is coping the sound it makes this means that Sam Mcgee

is getting cooked in the furnace. Another example from the text is The flames just soared and

the furnace roared. Because of this, we know that the word roar is an onomatopoeia because it's

mimicking a roar. In this poem the author uses onomatopoeia to make the reader have a vivid

picture of whats happening in the story.

The author uses onomatopoeia personification and similes to make the reader feel a

certain type of way during the poem. This poem had me cringing most of the time. The reason

the reader was cringing was the meaning of the story. The pictures the reader would see were

very descriptive. The author uses onomatopoeia personification and similes to make the reader

feel a certain type of way during the poem. Figurative language analysis
