Assonance is a literary device in which vowel sounds are recurring within sentences or phrases that are preceded to each other in the text.  

Example:

  • The blue moon looms 

It can be repetition of vowel sounds ANYWHERE in the word. 

It is used to reinforce the meanings of words or to set the mood. 

  • Try to light the fire. 
  • Hear the mellow wedding bells 

Assonance does not require words with the same vowel sounds to be directly next to each other.
