  • "Fogle invokes F.O. Matthiessen's term "ambiguity device" to describe the application of the veil in the story: The purpose of this device is to suggest a meaning while simultaneously casting doubt upon it, or to offer two or more interpretations at once of the same incident."
    Rick Moody, "The Black Veil", pg. 91
