    • Numbering All the Bones
      Figurative Language
    • Simile
      “ They hushed like a flock of crows hearing gunshot .” Page 8
      This quote in the book means that the people in the cabin hushed when Eulinda walked in.
    • Imagery
      “ Only when I heard the sound of a horse and carriage on the road approaching, only when the sun was disappearing behind the peach orchid.” Page 37
      This phrase is explaining the becoming of night time at Pond Bluff.
    • Metaphor
      “ Well, that man is a peevish, bitter little person with the brain of a gnat.” Page 41
      This phrase is comparing Captain Wirz to the brain of a gnat.
    • Hyperbole
      “ Everybody’s lying to everybody else around here.” Page 71
      This is a hyperbole because not everybody is going to be telling lies.
    • Repetition
      “ His hair was reddish brown and long. He had no beard. His nose was sharp, his eyes blue. He even had some freckles across his face.” Page 82
      This is a repetition used to describe what someone looks like.
    • Personification
      “ And the silence of the place pounded in my ears, in my blood, and in my bones.” Page 114
      This phrase means that the place cant be silent.
