Device Device Meaning Device Definition



A Device is something instrumental through which a thing is operated to get the desired result. A literary Device is something like a mental picture made of words through which a speaker or writer intends to illustrate and conveys his ideas or viewpoints to his listeners or readers. The use of imagery is such a device in any literary art- either prose or poetry.

The analysis and assessment of devices in any literary art involve the examination of the use of words, phrases, construction and functions of words, phrases, sentences, figures of speech, allusions, references (in brief to say, imageries ) with which any literary art takes shape. 0 0 0.
