    I'm stuck on a question!

    In "I died fir Beauty" the reader is left with the impression that the moss is actually the only thing alive. What device does dickinson use?

    Onomatopoeia
    Irony
    Dissonance
    Assonance
    please help!

    I wouldn't usually call that irony, but of those choices, that's the only possible one.

    Well that poem does make use of a fair bit of assonance.

    Also, it's better to ask your teacher when you have a question like this
