This presentation compares the emblematic literary devices in relation to language style in Funes the Memorious, by Jorge Luis Borges. The story is centered around the incomprehensible Ireneo Funes, a Uruguayan boy genius and savant whose mind perceives all and forgets nothing. Yet, this extraordinary power seems negated by his paralyzed body and lack of understanding of abstract human concepts. In the presentation, it is argued that the style of language used by Borges represents Funes' contradictory nature through his use of diction, tone, and symbolism. This is a video of the presentation, "Emblematic Language Style and How It Represents the Characters in Funes the Memorious: A Literary Analysis" given at the 2022 Undergraduate Projects & Research Conference at Salt Lake Community College. The presenter: David Hockett. The video can be accessed via YouTube here: https://youtu.be/LwynFpscCnk
