Explain the figure of speech in the line 'are we wreathing a flowery band to bind us to the earth'

Dear Student,

The figure of speech used here is an alliteration. Alliteration is when nearby words begin with the same consonant sounds. Here, the words "band" and "bind" both begin with the consonant /b/. Such techniques are used to bring out the musical quality of the poem.

Hope this answers your question. For further doubts, please ask on the forum and our experts will be happy to help you as soon as possible.
