Wiki User

Carl Sandberg was one of the great poets of the 20th Century. His use of literary elements in "Theme in Yellow" include assonance (repetition of vowel sounds within words) and consonance (repetition if consonant sounds within words). An example of assonance would be the use if the "o" sound in the line "On the last of October" and an example of consonance would be the use of the "ll" in "I SPOT hills/with yellow balls in autumn". Also, the personification of the pumpkin throughout the entire poem, concluding the pumpkin saying "I am fooling" is a literary element employed in this poem.
