Parallelism Riley Boldt/1

Parallelism: is a use of components that are grammatically the same, same structure, sound, or meaning, in the same sentence or phrase.

Example From The Raven: "From my books surcease of sorrow—sorrow for the lost Lenore..." This is an example of parallelism because the word sorrow repeats adding a certain feel to the poem that adds to the suspense and adds to the mood that was previously set.

My example: "The criminal was wanted dead or alive." This is an example of parallelism because the idea of how the criminal was wanted repeated in the segment of the sentence, "...dead or alive."
