Slide 2 Go Figure! Poetic Devices and Figurative Language Slide 3 Recognizing Literal Language Ive eaten so much I feel as if I could literally burst! In this case, the person is not using the word literally in its true meaning. Literal means "exact" or "not exaggerated." By pretending that the statement is not exaggerated, the person stresses how much he has eaten. Literal language is language that means exactly what is said. Most of the time, we use literal language. Slide 4 Recognizing Figurative Language Figurative language is the opposite of literal language. Figurative language is language that means more than what it says on the surface. It usually gives us a feeling about its subject. When you read poetry, you must be conscious of the difference between literal language and figurative language. Otherwise, a poem may make no sense at all.
