Critical Thinking

posted by .

Hello,

Is this an example of the rhetorical device "description and imagery":

Because society not only reviles suicide, it rescinds the autonomy and freedom of most persons known to be considering it.

Thank you,

    I would not say that that statement uses imagery at all, and where is the "description"?

    Those two catagories are not included in the lists of rhetorical devices.

    Check this site for a good definition of imagery.
