Of Mice and Men

Writers use figurative language (metaphor, simile, personification, hyperbole) to describe things in fresh, new ways. Four common types of figurative language are defined in the box below. For each passage from the novel, tell which type of figurative language it contains and explain what the figure of speech describes or means.
