The suggestions are really helpful. It's so thoughtful of you.

I don't think a comma (,) is required before and however.
"He repeats the third line in order to imprint it on the readerís/listenerís memory and to foreground the presence of a non-literal meaning, but not the meaning." Is it wrong to use "itself" at the end here? These are actually not my words. I will put a website link at the end of this post. You can see the words used by a great gentleman (Brainstorm).
May I offer another suggestion?
I wouldn't add "/listener" here. It doesn't really add anything beneficial to your sentence. I think as a rule of thumb the more simple and to the point a sentence is, the better. OK. Thanks a lot!
Also, look at the part in red. you use an adjective with the first "meaning" I think you should also use another adjective with the second "meaning". That would make the contrast more obvious. What about 'literal'?
Here's the link. Just see the first reply by dear Brainstorm.
