Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Analysis Essay

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, is a children’s Christmas song with a theme of hope and greatness for everyone that is unique. There are various poetic devices used throughout the song that lead to that message.

There are two examples of personification in places in the song. Both examples have to do with reindeer. In the first example the reindeer are described as poking fun of Rudolph because of his unique red nose, just like little children.
