For the most part, language in this work is used in a relatively straightforward way, recounting the story clearly and simply with occasional flashes of poetic imagery. Perhaps the most notable use of language in the book is its evocation of racism, both in terms of the environment in which Jerome lives and comes of age but also his inner environment, his ways of thinking and responding to the world around him.
