How do you use an accumulation in literary devices like quotes?

English Tutor Answered question April 5, 2020

We do not use in quotes. Quotes are taken from popular literary pieces to show examples of such literary devices. Such as;
A Modest Proposal (by Jonathan Swift)

“… having no other motive than the public good of my country, by advancing our trade, providing for infants, relieving the poor, and giving some pleasure to the rich … ”

This is a very good example of accumulation wherein Swift gives suggestions on how to get rid of poverty. He has listed various motives and ways to resolve the problems, adding and contributing to the meaning of the sentences.
