Three Literary Devices in “Beauty and the Beast”


Yes, these three include,

Imagery: In this story, you would find extensive use of imagery. For instance, Beauty uses imagery to tell about her sister,

“[Grace’s] hair was wavy and fine and luxuriant, and as butter-yellow as it had been when she was a baby…”

Simile: author uses simile to describe the eyes of Grace.

“…her eyes were…as blue as a clear May morning after rain…”

Hyperbole: Author uses hyperbole to describe young men’s love for older sisters of Beauty,

“…with every eligible young man…dying of love for them…”

Here obviously, men were dying from love, however simply they were much in love with them.
