Cry, the Beloved Country

Read this excerpt from Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton

“There is a lovely road that runs from Ixopo into the hills. These hills are grass-covered and rolling, and they are lovely beyond any singing of it. The road climbs seven miles into them, to Carisbrooke; and from there, if there is no mist, you look down on one of the fairest valleys of Africa.”

What literary device is being utilized in this passage?

A. Pun
B. Allusion
C. Foreshadowing
D. Imagery

Scroll down for the answer.


Answer- D- The visual portrayed here gives the reader, who may be unfamiliar with this terrain, a clear idea of what the land looks like. Although, foreshadowing may also be present, without any other information provided from the novel, you, the test taker, must utilize only the information that you are being given.

Thanks, Maggie, from Mrs. Stamey's class.  The title of this book speaks of crying and you who else cries often?  State fans during basketball season.
