LITERARY DEVICES IN KIPLING’S WORK By Howie Gulle
What will you find? Alliteration Rhyme Scheme Repetition Personification Simile
Alliteration The repetition of a consonant sound in words closely related. Opposite of assonance. Example: Bilbo’s balloons bulged, boomed, and bongled.
Kipling’s Alliteration “reeling and groping, dazed, disheveled and dumb,” (Kipling, Joseph “A Legend of Truth” 1, stanza.2.5)
Rhyme Scheme How the last words on each line rhyme with each other. Example: Roses are red,A Violets are blue,B Here are three words:C I love you.B
Outside, there’s rhyme.. Now there is nothing wrong with meA Except -- I think it's called T.B.A And that is why I have to layB Out in the garden all the day.B Our garden is not very wideC And cars go by on either side,C And make an angry-hooty noiseD That rather startles little boys.D
And still more.. But worst of all is when they takeE Me out in cars that growl and shake,E With charabancs so dreadful-nearF I have to shut my eyes for fear.F But when I'm on my back again,G I watch the Croydon aeroplaneG That flies across to France, and singsH Like hitting thick piano-strings.H
And then.. No more. When I am strong enough to doI The things I'm truly wishful to,I I'll never use a car or trainJ But always have an aeroplane;J And just go zooming round and round,K And frighten Nursey with the sound,K And see the angel-side of clouds,L And spit on all those motor-crowds! L
Repetition Repeating the same word or phrase. Example: Red lies in the sky, Yes, red lies in the sky, And the wind blows me by, Yes, the wind blows me by.
Repetition in Kipling, Kipling. “Until the Spring return -- Until the Spring return, good sirs,” (Kipling, Joseph “A Carol” 1, stanza 3.4-5) “That breaks her heart in the cold -- That breaks her heart in the cold, good sirs,” (Kipling, Joseph “A Carol” 1, stanza 2.4-5)
Personification A nonliving object having ‘living’ or human qualities. Example: I walked the road, The arms of trees pulled me, The eyes of rocks watched me.
Kipling’s Personification “In the teeth of Things forbid,” Can ‘Things forbid’ live? Does ‘Things forbid’ have teeth? Really? I’ve never seen it eat. (Kipling, Joseph “A Carol” 1, stanza 2.5)
