After the Harlequin causes the jelly beans to tumble on the factory, there were “million and billions of purples and yellows and greens and licorice and grape and raspberry and mint and round and smooth and crunchy outside” (3). Harlan Ellison’s use of conjunctions (polysyndeton) as a syntactical tool illustrates how the Harlequin’s sentences often trail off in their own continuous path. The magnitude of the Harlequin’s sentences differentiates himself from the rest of the civilians, who often speak briefly due to fear of the Ticktockman and his attention to time. The polysyndeton exhibits the Harlequin’s attempt to alter society, through his long phrases, whereby he fails to modify to humanity and must conform to the governmental laws. Harlan Ellison articulates that the upper-class citizens of the city “consider [the Harlequin] a menace; a heretic; a rebel; a disgrace” (2).
