Blog Prompt: Figurative Language

Hello class,

Prompt for tonight's post:  from the article you're analyzing for the RA, pick out a figure of language of some sort (from what we talked in class today, or from the reading, or whatever--metaphor, alliteration, hyperbole, over/understatement, symbol, etc.) and analyze it.  Why did the author choose this particular form of language?  What effect does it have on his audience?  Etc.

Happy blogging!
