This one page worksheet identifies the five examples of figurative language Narayan employs in his short story, "The Old Man of the Temple:" repetition, parallel structure, personification, alliteration, and flashback. In the first part students have to match these terms to their definitions, and then they identify 12 quoted examples from the story. A short fill-in-the-blank paragraph of explanation concludes this work page. This can be given as homework or as an in-class review assignment. A KEY is provided.
