Anaphora Definition | Writing

An Anaphora is a rhetorical device used in writing where the same word or words are repeated at the beginning of successive sentences or clauses. It‘s commonly used for emphasis and can lend a fun, flowy feeling to your writing. In other cases, it’s used to help impart a strong and vivid feeling in the reader or listener. Plus, it’s like a secret handshake for writers — a special way to show off your literary prowess.
 
A few famous but far more serious examples are “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets…” by Winston Churchill and “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…” from Charles Dickens.
