  • " this is a simile because it uses "like"."Stories were different though, they came alive in the telling." this is a personification because it is giving stories the ability to come alive.
  • "Death had made her small." this is a metaphor because the writer didn't use like or as.
"They could take root in the imagination, and transform the reader. Stories wanted to be read,"(pg 3)
