Never mind that to me, the face of Afghanistan is that of a boy with a thin-boned frame, a shaved head, and low-set ears, a boy with a Chinese doll face perpetually lit by a harelipped smile. (Hosseini 25) Within this excerpt contains the literary device of imagery , due to its emphasized descriptor of Hassan. Hosseini portrays the young boy as this for the reader’s benefit and to indicate how Hassan is an outcast. The main rhetorical strategy utilized in this quote was description . To further out the significance and appearance of Hassan, Hosseini emphasized this to inform readers of his different nature and opposing physical traits. Another literary device illuminated within this passage was the usage of foreshadowing .

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
