In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
Truman Capote employs several literary techniques in his 1967 classic In Cold Blood. They include: setting, plot, dialogue, style of narration as well as symbols, motifs, foreshadowing, flashback, and showing vs. telling. The setting of the story is in the 1950’s in a small town called Holcomb in Kansas. During that time, the white American men had a great advantage over other men. The outsiders had a hard time adapting into the time, for instance if one happened to be out of prison after serving their time. Herb Clutter was the ideal American man since he was white, a staunch Methodist,a civic leader and was financially advantaged. The town of Holcomb, on the other hand, was perceived as a quiet, lonely and peaceful town.
