On the Quai at Smyrna

“Then I told the Turk the man was being sent on board ship and would be most severely dealt with. Oh most rigorously. He felt topping about it. Great friends we were.” (p.11)

E. Hemingway. In Our Time. “On the Quai at Smyrna”. New York: Scribner. 2003. Print.

This is just one of the first examples I have found in this boo about how emphasis is created through a repetition.He also uses a rhetorical device with the last sentence to portray a sense of either a point of truth or irony. (I’m not really quite sure)
