Diaskeue


Diaskeue (di-as-keu’-ee): Graphic peristasis (description of circumstances) intended to arouse the emotions.

Total destruction. No warning. Houses torn to pieces. Cars turned upside down. Furniture scattered everywhere. So many people torn by grief.  How will they ever recover? What a tragedy.
