The poet has also used both repetition and similes in the poem. For example - ‘must wait, must stand and wait’ (repetition) and ‘looked at me vaguely as cattle do’ (simile). Pick out examples of both and make a list of them in your notebooks. Give reasons why the poet uses these literary devices.

Repetition

• And must wait, must stand and wait

• to feel so honoured I felt so honoured

• And slowly and slowly very slowly

• I was afraid

• I was most afraid

• from the burning bowels of the earth

• Into the burning bowels of the earth

Simile

• as cattle do, as drinking cattle do

• Lifted his head from his drinking, as cattle do

• He had come like a guest in quiet.

• And lifted his head dreamily, as one who has tongue.

• And flickered his tongue like a forked night on the air.

• And looked around like a God

•  writhed like lightning

•  he seemed to me again like a king.
