This 2 page worksheet on the Figurative Language Eugenia Collier employs in "Marigolds" has 3 parts. In Part 1 the students match the definitions of examples of Figurative Language to the terms: classical allusion, onomatopoeia, repetition, oxymoron, symbolism, irony, parallel structure, alliteration, flashback, metaphor, contrast, simile. In Part 2 students match the same terms to general examples of figurative language, and in Part 3 they match the terms to 30 direct quotations taken form the story. This is a good assignment because it is progressive, and builds on info from the last section. This can be used as classwork or homework; a 2 page answer KEY is provided.
