Literary terms are words that we use to describe the approach, method, structuring used by someone that is communicating a message in either verbal or written form. This can be used to describe classical authors of literature as well as the local area comic. In general, they are techniques that help writers have a deeper impact on their readers. These techniques strengthen the effect of a writer’s work on the audience that takes it in. The end result usually finishes in the reader having some form of an emotional response to the work. These literary devices can be used to persuade readers into accepting a certain opinion, having good feelings towards a product, or even accepting a political view.
