can u please list the fugures of speech from tiger in the zoo

Dear student,

Here is the answer:

Personification,  Metaphor, and Metonymy are the figures of speech used in the poem "A tiger in the zoo."

Personification:  The poet has effectively used the poetic device of personification, as he has always referred to the tiger as 'him', instead of 'it' or 'the creature'.
Metaphor:  Metaphor is used in the 3rd line of the 1st stanza. The poet compares the pads of the tiger’s feet with velvet because both are soft and smooth to the touch.
Metonymy:  Metonymy is used in the 2nd line of the 4th stanza, the poet uses the word “strength” to mean the body of the tiger.
