Weep Not, Child

What are some of the sylistic language devices used by the author in this text?

I am a diploma student, taking a course in English and literature at Moi University, Kenya.

The novel's stylistic and thematic aim is less to tell a few stories than to explore an entire culture in flux and on the verge of violence, through several perspectives. It includes several sub-plots, including those of Ngotho, Njoroge's father, who struggles against the loss of his family's land; and Mwihaki, a wealthy village girl who explores a romance with Njoroge. Most interestingly, perhaps, it also attempts to understand the mindset of one of the white colonists, Mr. Howlands.
