The answer is: apostrophe and allusion. Apostrophe refers to a poetic technique that is used to treat the absence of an individual or of an abstract idea/be. Allusion on the other side is a poetic technique that is performed through an indirect reference To another person with a high level of significance (could be historical or culturally significant)
