A new term for old terms

Rhetorical strategy is a loose term for technigues that help to shape or enhance a literary work.

Although I was familiar in the general sense with all of the specific vocabulary terms presented in this section, I had actually never heard them classified as "rhetorical strategies" before. Having this name to group them under now makes talking, thinking, and writing about them so much easier.
