2.    Julius Caesar of Shakespeare’s play does not use “cross-dressing” as a device.

3.    The etymological meaning of the word “trope” is turning.

4.    “Everything that man esteems

Endures a moment or a day

Love’s pleasure drives his love away…” In the above quote the last line is an example of paradox

5.    Seamus Heaney is the 20th century poet, a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, who rejected the label “British” though he has always written in English rather than his regional language.

6.    When you say “I love her eyes, her hair, her nose, her cheeks, her lips” you are using a rhetorical device of Enumeration.

7.    With Bacon the essay form is “the aphoristic expression of accumulated public wisdom”

8.    ‘’Lexis” refers to all word forms having meaning or grammatical functions

9.    ‘’The Divine Comedy” is divided into three canticas, each consisting of 33 cantos
