English - Poetry Studies - Imagery

An image is language used in such a way as to help us to see, hear, feel, taste, think about or generally understand more clearly and vividly what is being said, or the impression that the writer wants to create.

The imagery is created through descriptive language.

Images can work in different ways:

A literal image - re-created the scene or description through precise language.

Figurative language - uses comparisons to make the description more vivid.

In the poems that you study you will find several types of imagery:

Similes

Metaphors

Personification

Aural Imagery: Alliteration, Assonance, Onomatopoeia.
