Most of his A family of four murdered to death; slaughtered, a Renowned writer Truman Capote wanted to study this murder and write a book about it. Capote tends to use a lot of imagery conveying the town,You don’t stop fishing when you get old you get old when you stop fishing “Holcomb, Kansas” which the family of four were massacred in. Vivid description was not the only thing that capote utilized, there were many more rhetorical devices as well. Starting off Capote views the town as lonely, not much to it, not really being an attractive town. The Clutter family murder was essentially the only thing that caused attention to the town. Capote says ¨The village of Holcomb stands on the high wheat plains of western Kansas, a lonesome area that other Kansans call “out there”. (Capote,18). In this statement that capote made first he used imagery. He described the high wheat plains insinuating that there was a lot of field not much construction going on if there was really just mainly land that was utilized by farmers he also was saying that the land was pretty much preserved.

It’s not an attractive town. to it’s nothing special about holcomb nothing to attract people with and it isn’t really even somewhere that someone would get lost and stumble upon with .

Although contrasting his statement on the rundown, poor looking town he talks about how they have this school building. The School is the only nice building in the town, it’s the only building that stands out.
