Til We Have Faces

Child, to say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean; that’s the whole art and joy of words.

— Til We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

The rhetorical device and/or Greek figure used is periphrasis, where you’re intentionally wordy, or not.
