Or possibly just unspoilt by tech.

I've managed to become spoilt by tech and yet not know a thing about computers, pity me. It's what comes from spending inordinate amounts of time around geeks.

I'm not the geekiest around... gosh, you should have seen what some of the compscis do with their spare time.

*Arty revival*

So, who would agree that anaphora is a more effective tool for an emphatic didactic message than tricolon, or would it rather be the case that copulative asyndeton is the most crucial devise?

Personally I've always been a big fan of chiasmus..

Personally, I prefer the use caesura myself. Imagine a pause in the middle of a line, so simple, so effective.

A caesura! What a device,
but not as good as
enjambement..

And then... but forget that, as I much prefer a decent aposiopesis

Ah, shall we discuss Nelson then? (Seems fitting given the recent Trafalgar anniversary).

I would personally favour anaphora, as it can often carry more information than the others. Though it seems odd that you've listed tricolon and asyndeton as though they were mutually exclusive; is not "I came, I saw, I conquered" and example of both? But what do I know, I'm just a mathmo.

Agree with you on chiasmus though.

Now
would
you all
stop
using
enjambment?
It makes
the page
too long.

Oh it was meant as a joke...I've heard musical talent in particular is very impressive irrespective of subject.

I'm sorry to disappoint, but that wasn't an impressive joke.
