Angelou personifies history by giving it the human emotion of shame. Personification can allow the poet to help readers relate and understand the ideas expressed in the poem. Angelou also uses similes throughout each stanza. As seen in lines such as 'Still like Air, I 'll rise ' and 'But still, like dust, I 'll rise ' Angelou uses similes to compare herself to air and dust.

In his introduction to his book Museum of Words, Heffernan suggests that probably the accurate method to learn about the sister arts is: “ by simply comparing them, by observing similarities that help us to read _ more accurately to construct_ the signature of a “period” or to formulate a master theory of signification”(Heffernan 2004). In his book Museum of Words he writes about W. J. T. Mitchell’s analysis in the ground of sister arts analysis Iconology that “ treats the relation between literature and the visual arts as essentially paragonal, a struggle for dominance between the image and the word”(Heffernan 2004).

The primary use of images within comics and graphic novels, such as Maus, forces the reader to acknowledge the events depicted graphically, on the page, whereas in prose novels readers are left to their imaginations.

Images also help the writer to establish mood and tone. Along with simile and metaphor, personification, and symbol, imagery is a type of figurative language. These other forms of figuration are often present in images. Besides helping the reader to connect to the literary work, imagery also functions to strengthen and develop the work’s underlying themes.
