Imagery- Imagery is when the author uses their words to let the reader imagine the scene, it uses a person’s five senses. In Macbeth, Banquo
In the story "The Chrysanthemums," by John Steinbeck, imagery is important in the development of his characters. The man who drives the wagon and fixes things is a perfect example of imagery. "His worn black suit was wrinkled and spotted with grease. The laughter had disappeared from his face and eyes the moment his laughing voice ceased. His eyes were dark, and they were full of the
I threw him out into the bright red, exclusive corridor of the 6th floor; where we had kidnapped him from his room in Hotel Central Paris. As I followed him, Jug grabbed him back by the back of the neck and shoved him to Alex, who took out his gun. He pressed our black coloured pistol was tightly against the man’s back, for when he made move to escape. We were too far into fail this time. I watched a man - an enemy - behind me fall down clutching his throat. A sense of satisfaction filled me. The five of us now worked together as a formidable team: Alex, me, Jug and our two accomplices. I almost growled beneath my mask thinking how one of us could have been so effortlessly snatched away. We were going to bring her back, whatever it cost.
Imagery is a strong element that helps portray a lot of internal feelings for the audience to fathom with, thus creating an experience that the audience can enjoy. Imagery is the language represented by sense experience and a literary device that helps create a mental picture for the reader to understand what the writer is trying to say to the audience (Johnson, Arp 779). The following is the poem by Langston Hughes: “The calm,/Cool face of the river/Asked me for a kiss.” (Hughes 1-3) When examining the poem, “Suicide’s Note”, it is full of imagery with only three lines present. The
We often rely on imagery, a literary device that uses vivid descriptions and appeals to the senses, in our storytelling to point out the important facts in our stories. It helps our audience picture the scene and understand the severity of the situation. In my opinion, a well-written scene can be incredibly meaningful and thought-provoking with the help of imagery, sometimes even more so than a photograph. In literature, this is no different. Authors will describe characters and events in great detail when they feel it is important to the story. They will use imagery to point out character traits, themes, symbols, and motifs. A good author paints you a picture so you can imagine the places, colors, expressions, textures, with all the fine details.
First I will define imagery, followed by metaphors, rhythm, structure and the importance of figurative language. Imagery is associated with mental pictures but it can be more complex than just a picture. “ The Things They Carried,” Tim O’Brien tells the story of each soldier by simply describing what he carries. Users of vivid description hold the readers interest. (Crossroads, p.23). Another example would be Anton Chekhov in “ Misery”, users of abstract concept in his story such as misery and a society that doesn’t care about an individual’s pain.
Imagery is used by many writers and this is when the writer uses visually descriptive or figurative language.

Imagery is a literary device in which the writing appeals to one or more of the five senses. Imagery occurs in vivid descriptive writing, and the writing often seems to paint a picture.
Imagery plays a big part in the success of a novel. Different writers have different styles. The good thing about imagery is it makes room for the reader to put things together. The reader is allowed to interpret the story the way that they like. "Ragged Dick", Horatio Alger, Jr. did a great thing with imagery. While reading the novel readers had a change to envision many things that were mentioned in each chapter. Algar interconnected the appearances of the main character to his living arrangement. He also connected these things with the character's attitude.
Imagery is any piece of language that provokes the readers mind to form a mental picture or image.
In 1984, Orwell makes excellent use of symbolism to further enhance the novel's theme and to reveal character. He wrote 1984 as a political message to warn future generations about the dangers of totalitarian societies. He relays this message through various themes and characters, in turn utilizes powerful symbols to give them further significance. His symbolism is very vast but it can be classified into three categories: characters, places and objects.
Winston Smith walked home\surrounded by posters proclaiming “Big Brother is Watching You”. Smith does not like the Party but expressing his opinion would mean certain death. Thought crime means death or vaporization, it meant a person’s existence was never there; they were born. This story is composed in three parts; the world of 1984 as he (Smith) sees it, Smith’s rebellion and affair with Julia and Smith’s interrogation, torture, most importantly, his re-education at Miniluv. Winston Smith live in the now ruined London, “chief city of Airstrip One” as quoted in the
This novel serves as a warning against the dangers of a technologically advanced tyrannical government. It is set in London, the chief city of Airstrip One, a province of Oceania. It is possibly the year 1984, although with the party's control of all facts, one could never be sure. ?To begin with, he did not know with any certainty that this was 1984. It must be round about that date, since he was fairly sure that his age was thirty-nine, and he believed that he had been born in 1944 or 1945; but it was never possible nowadays to pin down any date within a year or two.? (Orwell, p.9)
