Invective is one of the most commonly used devices in the modern poetic framework. The tool of invective can be used in a variety of ways to highlight the depth of the writer’s emotions for the cause at hand. For instance, the use of high invective involves formal language and creative expression which creates an entirely different impact than that of low invective, which concerns with the value of stock words and images. The tool of invective also acts as an opportunity for the speaker to convey his heartfelt bitter emotions in respect of people in power or other such annoyances. Invective is not, however, a powerful tool of persuasion as sometimes is thought but is a device employed to get a sort of reaction from the interlocutor.
