Tess Quotations – Quotation Analyses

1.  The use of ANAPHORA indicates the number of different things the girls hope for in their lives. The METAPHOR of a “private little sun” shows that each girl has a secret burning desire.

2.  The use of SIMILE makes a comparison between the apples on the tree in Tess’s garden, and the planets orbiting the stars. Tess suggests that her world is “blighted”, that it is wrong, and that suffering is a matter of fact.
