Can anyone find literary devices in these two examples??

“You hear what happen to Louvenia Brown’s grandson this morning? […] Use the white bathroom at Pinchman Law and Garden. Say they wasn’t a sign up saying so. Two white mens chased him and beat him with a tire iron […] He up at the hospital. I heard he blind.”

“I did not raise you to use the colored bathroom!” […] “This is dirty Mae Mobley. You’ll catch diseases! No, no, no!” And I hear her pop her again and again on her bare legs”

Thank you!

Yes, here we have found the terms:

Alliteration:

  • “Say they wasn’t a sign up saying s”

/s/ sound is repeated at the beginning of the words in the following line.

  • “He up at the h I heard he blind.”

/h/ sound repeats at the beginning of the underlined words.

  • “This is dirty Mae Mobley”

/i/ and /m/ sounds in the following line are creating alliteration in this line.

Point of View:

In the first example, second person point of view is used by using pronoun “you,” and in the second example both first and second person point of view are used but first person point of view is more strongly used by using pronoun “I.”

Overstatement:

“I heard he blind.”

This statement in the first example makes the point very serious and laying emphasis to take notice.
