Repetition in Sign Language Poetry and Storytelling

Repetition is another literary device used in poetry and storytelling.

The poetic narrative "The Ball" by Ben Bahan is a beloved classic story.

Unfortunately, the original video is not available on YouTube to embed here. However, below is a student's version, learning from the original storyteller, only for an illustration. I strongly recommend you to watch the original storyteller.

In the narrative "The Ball", Ben repeated a set of the characters, repeating the same movement but using different classifier handshapes for each character.
