Figures of Speech


"In the eastern sky there was a yellow patch like a rug laid for the feet of the coming sun; and against it, black and patternlike, loomed the gigantic figure of the colonel on the gigantic horse."

yellow rug = sunset

"the great blood-swollen god" = war

"red badge of courage" = wound
