Transcript of Polysyndeton

Polysyndeton A polysyndeton is a sentence style
that employs many coordinating
conjunctions. It can also be explained
as a different way to
connect lists. In order to use polysyndetons,
you place a conjunction after
every name,object, etc. in the list
except the last one. Polysyndeton comes from
the Greek, "bound together" "It is respectable to have no illusions--and safe
--and profitable-- and dull." (Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim) "He pulled the blue plastic tarp off of him
and folded it and carried it out to the grocery
cart and packed it and came back with their
plates and some cornmeal cakes in a plastic
bag and a plastic bottle of syrup." (Cormac McCarthy, The Road.) "There was much game hanging outside the shops, and the snow powdered in the fur of the foxes and the wind blew their tails. The deer hung stiff and heavy and empty, and small birds blew in the wind and the wind turned their feathers. It was a cold fall and the wind came down from the mountains."
(Ernest Hemingway. In Another Country) "The were frowzy fields, and cow-houses, and dunghills, and dustheaps, and ditches, and gardens, and summer houses, and carpet-beating grounds, at the very door of the Railway. Little tumuli of oyster shells in the oyster season, and of lobster shells in the lobster season, and of broken crockery and faded cabbage leaves in all seasons, encroached upon its high places." (Charles Dickens, Dombey and Son) Kenzie Bryant
