This 2 page, Figurative Language worksheet on Agatha Christie's short story has 3 parts: Part 1 identifies 12 examples of figurative language Christie employs in the story: classical allusion, idiom, onomatopoeia, irony, alliteration, metaphor, cliché, parallel structure, synecdoche, symbolism, repetition, and simile. The students have to match these terms to the definitions given. In Part 2 the students match the same terms to easy examples of the same figurative language. In Part 3 the students identify 30 examples from direct quotations from the story. (Some are used more than once.) This can be used as homework, and in-class assignment, or as a review of figurative language. A 2 page answer KEY is included.
