Rhetorical Devices Examples in The Garden:
"dye from a rock..." See in text (The Garden)
In presenting a simile that does not reflect the natural order of the world, the speaker forces the audience to stretch their imagination. She yokes together two unlike images to create a feeling rather than a precise description of her physical reality. In this way, the audience is able to enter the mind of the speaker and experience her feelings rather than objectively watch what is going on in the scene.
