Rhetorical schemes are strategies used to emphasize, to draw analogies, and engage the reader. The following are some examples of rhetorical schemes: Parallelism, in which the structure is the same for several sentences; Repetition, in which the author repeats a word to emphasize it, or cause the reader to analyze the appropriateness of the word; as well as Antithesis, in which contrary ideas are presented within a balanced sentence.
