Atwood does a fantastic job at using these literary devices to allow the reader to not only be able to comprehend the poem, but to make them feel as if they are in the poem itself. Some examples of literary devices that Atwood uses to have this effect on readers are imagery, anaphora, diction, tone, figurative language and irony, and these barely scratch the surface of how many literary devices are used in the poem. All of these literary devices are what makes Atwood’s poem as good as it seems.

Mimesis is the imitation of life, capturing the human condition and painting it in a way so that others can experience it. Simply put, literature is the most effective way to do this.

Through his act of self-sacrifice, Carton absolves his crude past and gains respect from readers. In Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, Sidney Carton’s love for Lucie Manette is the driving force which ultimately redeems his character at the end of the novel; his capacity to love another person transforms his character from a self-centered alcoholic to a selfless hero. Charles Dickens quickly informs his readers of the impertinent and egoistic nature of Sidney Carton’s character. Described as “careless” and “fully half-insolent”, Carton is introduced to readers as someone who has little respect for anyone, including himself. While drunk in a tavern with Charles Darnay, Carton expresses, “‘You know I have been drinking...you shall likewise know why...I care for no man on earth, and no man on earth cares for me’” (Dickens 84).

Fitzgerald’s prominent rhetorical strategy is symbolism throughout The Great Gatsby, making him a good writer as symbolism gives depth and adds meaning to the novel. Nabokov tells us “… The writer is the first man to mop it and to form the natural objects it contain”, which implies that using rhetoric allows the novel to gain body and character. Starting in Chapter Two, the group arrives at the “Valley of Ashes” and passes a big billboard as they drive through to the City.
