Name the figure of speech used in the lesson 'The great stone face - 1'.

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

The figure of speech used in the lesson include:

1. Oxymoron/ sarcasm (generally used to mock something in a serious manner) - the reason for emphasising this figure of speech is to project the importance the people give to the person who looks similar to the stone face. The people chosen for this purpose are famous and men of high regard. Therefore, it is an attempt on the part of the author to show how people relate things to personalities who are famous, even though the similarities do not exist.
2. The use of personification - the rock is a representation of wisdom and Ernest is believed to have learned vast lessons by gazing upon the stone face.

I really hope that I have helped you with the question. Please continue posting your doubts on the forum.
