QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY

Kenning-is a type of literary trope, specifically circumlocution, in the form of a compound(usually two words, often hyphenated) that employs figurative language in place of a more concrete single-word noun.

In literature, a kenning is a magic poetic phrase, a figure of speech, substituted for the usual name of a person or thing. Kennings work in much the same way as epithets and verbal formulae, and were commonly inserted into Old English poetic lines.
