Literary tropes are figures of speech that leave their literal meaning for effect. These words and phrases are used as a writing device for emphasis, brevity, clarity, rhythm, novelty, peculiarity, style and so on. Figures of speech are divided into two rhetorical devices known as tropes and schemes.
In trope, the use of a word or a phrase other than its literal meaning changes the meaning of a sentence. The word trope derives from the Greek verb έ (trepein) meaning to turn, to direct, to alter, to change. That is, turning the meaning of a sentence another way by the use of a word(s).
There are various sub-categories in tropes, which are discussed in detail within each chapter.
