It also makes the whole engagement more enticing not only because it elucidates and canonizes emotions in the novel, but also because it helps to create imagery in the readers mind. He is also able to use diction and imagery to construct eloquent passages that are at the same time punctual and yet have deep emotional tolls on the reader.
