Visual imagery is often the first step to subconsciously sending the reader into a parallel state of mind as the protagonist, and letting them experience what the characters experienced throughout the story. The visuals used in the beginning of this story convince readers that they have been placed in a safe, secure environment, therefore having a positive effect on readers when they
It was a free drawing activity, where we could draw anything we wished to. The boys always drew cars and robots on the blank canvas given to us, while girls usually drew nature with animals. On my blank sheet of paper, I wanted to draw a natural scene with flowers and puppies; however, in order to be accepted; I drew cars and robots instead. Needless to say, my cars and robots did not turn out too well at all. In this example, George’s morals, as a child, are on a huge blank canvas, undefiled by the world. However, in my case, through the peer pressures, I drew something I did not want to draw. Meanwhile, through the influence of his mother, George becomes someone he does not want to be. When George stole, he feels uneasy and is described as having “closed faces and hard eyes,” (Sebold, 188) which shows tremendous doubt on his part. Even though, George does not want to steal, he does it anyway in order to gain the acceptance of his mother, while I simply drew cars and robots in order to gain the acceptance of my peers.
Power and control plays a big role in the lives many. When power is used as a form of control, it leads to depression and misery in the relationship. This is proven through the themes and symbolism used in the stories Lesson before Dying, The fun they had, The
Part: B Verbal-Visual Essay For the visual portion of this essay I chose to print and paste pictures of objects that were either in the story or were symbolized throughout the story. I decided to put a justice scale for Harrison Bergeron because the story was about equality. the story was unique because it did not only make people ''equal in the eyes of God and the law,'' Kurt Vonnegut took the idea of equality to a whole other level by making every man and woman equal in every way possible, which is why I chose to represent this story with the justice scale. Another story that had a lot of symbolism is ''The Study in Geometry'' who's title cleverly means the study in triangles or in this case love triangle. In this story our protagonist
In a world of empathy and selfishness, one must always prevail. The short story “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst tells a tale of a young boy and his disabled younger brother, Doodle. The narrator, also known as Brother, recalls the life of his brother and how his own actions
By giving the reader a visual representation to go along with the written text, Chast allows the reader to better understand what she is feeling in that exact moment. On page 137, Chast draws herself completely different in each panel. On this page she is describing her dinner experience with her parents one night in the dining room of “The Place”. Elizabeth (her mother) is asking George (her father) how many olives he wants, and this page depicts the back and forth argument that ensues about how many he should eat. In the first panel, Chast draws herself and her parents sitting at the table having a calm conversation. In the second panel, she draws the beginning of the argument, showing her mother’s amazement through her bulging eyes and large speech bubble that covers most of the panel. In a later panel, after making a suggestion that she thought would solve all the confusion, Chast draws herself in a cap and gown outfit alongside a Nobel Peace Prize trophy. This depiction emphasizes how she felt her suggestion would be appreciated by her parents, and also gives the reader the ability to understand her parent’s tendency to create large problems out of small disagreements. In the last panel, Chast’s parents violently scream at her for her suggestion, shown by the the large speech bubble outlined by a jagged edge. Chast was able to express five different emotions in just eight panels without using words to describe her feelings. By doing this, she is tapping into the reader's emotions; not only are the readers reading her story about this moment but they are also in the story with her. By giving the reader visuals that are easily related to, Chast makes the reader they feel the frustration just as she does. On top of showing her exact feelings towards her parents on this page, she also shows her parents’ personalities and how situations just like this one

2. On page 78, “When I think of this portrait of my grandparents in their last years, I always envision a beginning. To or toward what, I don’t know, but always a beginning.” Why might the young narrator be inclined to view this portrait as a beginning?

What significance might Ma have attached to the portrait’s loss?
Visual Analysis Paper This is an anti-smoking advertisement geared towards parents of young children. The advertisement is overall plain and simple; it gets straight to the point when you look at it and utilizes a dark theme. This anti-smoking advertisement is trying to evoke a sense of “parental guilt” into parents who smoke. The way the advertisement is able to do this is through the use of an optical illusion, use of text and the use of negative space.

Kelfer’s audience broadened from one personality to a wide spectrum of individuals. He addressed his audience in second person as if speaking to one individual. Although he wrote in second person, Mr. Kelfer’s actual audience included magnanimous number of individuals due to his radio ministry and publication of the poem on his website. Unlike some messages, which only target certain individuals in crisis or pain, his poem touched a chord in almost all reader’s hearts.

The artwork, “Number 10,” by Mark Rothko displays two rectangles (top, yellow and the bottom, white) with a baby blue background color. Seeing the painting for the first time was surprising since I didn’t understand how it correlated with the title. It was easy to look at, but it didn’t catch my attention right away! I felt confused and frustrated while observing the piece because I didn’t know how I was going to find the meaning that lay behind the painting. This reminded me of my first-born nephew; I had such a difficult time trying to understand why he would cry so much. However, I was aware that crying was his way of communicating how he felt, just like painting this abstract piece was Rothko's style of communication.
