Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Through his use of synecdoche, J. D. Vance develops a rhetoric in which those in need are framed not as citizens but as the recipients of unnecessary entitlements. His memoir Hillbilly Elegy transposes an exclusionary neoconservative ideology onto the national narrative, turning the dominant story of the nation into one of resentment for other people's entitlements.
