Consonance is a stylistic literary device identified by the repetition of identical or similar consonants in neighboring words whose vowel sounds are different.
- Luke likes his new cycle.
- He struck a streak of bad luck.
- Please don't sneeze.
- How cold steel is
- And keen with hunger
Consonance used in the poem "Fire and Ice":
- Some say the world will end in fire
- Some say in ice
- From what I’ve tasted of desire
- I hold with those who favour fire.
- But if it had to perish twice
- I think I know enough of hate
- To say that for destruction ice
- Is also great
- And would suffice
