Would an example of parallelism in "Beloved" be the mention of the "chokecherry tree" on her back, since it's mentioned a couple of times? Or would parallelism be more like the dog leaving and not coming back to the house twice because of the ghost? (I'm sorry; I struggle with this parallelism thing)

1. Did you read the examples in the linked article that Ms Sue gave you yesterday?
http://literarydevices.net/parallelism/

Also there's this: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/parallelism.htm

Parallelism is in the phrasing, not in the repeated actions in a story or poem or speech, etc.

Parallelism is in immediate phrasing, not scattered throughout the work.

Have you heard or read any of JFK's or Martin Luther King's speeches? Look them up, especially JFK's inaugural speech and MLK's I Have a Dream speech.
