What are two examples of litotes from "A Tale of Two Cities"?
"A day wasted on others is not wasted on one's self.”
"It was the National Razor which shaved close: who kissed La Guillotine, looked through the little window and sneezed into the sack. It was the sign of the regeneration of the human race."
Litotes is a figure of speech that uses understatement to emphasize a point by stating a negative to further affirm a positive, often incorporating double negatives for effect.
