    Definition of Consonance Literary Term

    Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening


    Robert Frost (1874-1963)

    Whose woods these are I think I know.

    His house is in the village though;

    He will not see me stopping here

    To watch his woods fill up with snow.

    Several examples of sibilance come from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" For example: "And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain" (note that this example also contains assonance around the "ur" sound).

    Consonance The repetition of the same consonant sounds at the end of stressed syllables, but with different vowel sounds, within or at the end of a line, such as "bad and sod", (d's) or "when furnaces burn", (n's). Tip: Consonance begins with a consonant and it governs consonants.


    Nothing Gold Can Stay: dawn goes down (n's) (alliteration and consonance)

    Mowing: sound beside the wood (d's);

    Tree at my Window: could be profound (d's); Mine with inner (n's) Note: here the stressed consonant sound (n) is inside the word. Although the vowel is the same as spelled, it is a different sound. The rule applies.

    Looking for a Sunset Bird in Winter: died of cold (d's), thought....alight, sweet and swift (t's) and more

    The Vantage Point: : slope where the cattle keep, (p's);
