Atwood does a fantastic job at using these literary devices to allow the reader to not only be able to comprehend the poem, but to make them feel as if they are in the poem itself. Some examples of literary devices that Atwood uses to have this effect on readers are imagery, anaphora, diction, tone, figurative language and irony, and these barely scratch the surface of how many literary devices are used in the poem. All of these literary devices are what makes Atwood’s poem as good as it seems. Imagery is one of the major literary devices used throughout this poem because of its drastic effect it can have on the reader.

In the Odyssey, Homer creates comparative relationships using metaphors and similes in order to expand upon themes. One interesting relationship in the epic is that between the poet and the hero. In this epic, the most prominent of the heroes are Odysseus and Telemakhos, and the most prominent poets are Demodokos and Homer. There are many different examples of relationships between the poet and the hero, but one of the more striking relationships is the similarity between the two. Through this comparison, Homer shows that both the poet and the hero cannot achieve greatness without pain or help, but instead need to suffer and need the help of an external guiding hand in order to achieve greatness.
As Pavel states, ?All fiction and poetry insofar as they provide, to use Aristotles expression, the imitation of an action significantly contribute to community. They provide community with a vast repertory of cases, with a full blown casuistic,? (Pavel, 532).
