What is the style of The Invalid's Story?
Some style points in the story are:
Humor: the story is amusing and written in a subtle but funny way
Personification: The men refer to two inanimate objects—the gunbox and the cheese—as if they exhibit human qualities, a technique called personification
Foreshadowing: The story uses the foreshadowing technique, for example, when he is telling his story, Twain's narrator gives away both causes of the conflict, the guns and the cheese
