Creative Nonfiction

I was very intrigued by the creative nonfiction post titled "Candy" by Diane Seuss. From beginning to end, Seuss's way of approaching the subject of love and loss was at times charming. Her use of literary devices were very compelling and captivating along with the story. Some of the literary devices I was absorbed in were, the metaphor defining her memory as a "mute swan." Also her use of metonymy to relate her bedroom closet to the "Museum of  Love" was amusing. Mostly, I enjoyed Seuss's humor approach with her experience of this discovery and loss of love. She really made me smile and look at things at a different perspective.
