Imagery: Yes or No

I'm curious to know if these are pieces of imagery, I'm not 100% sure, so if you have any idea, just speak your mind.

1: "I heard ten thousand wisperin' and nobody listenin'"

2: "I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'"

3: "I heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world"

4: "I met a man who was wounded in love, I met another man who was wounded in hatred"

If you have any idea, just speak your mind, thanks a lot!

Is this visual imagery?

“I could see the delicate latticework of the leaves, the texture of the soil, the brownes needles beneath the pines, the configurations of geology and human history.”

is this imagery?

The ground was covered in white

My face covered in red

when i walked into the warmth

heat blasted my face like flames

It felt like a popsicle on a hot-summer day

When i closed my eyes slowly

I felt like i was in paradise

i was so crisp and bleak before

Imagery

heat blasted my face like flames is a concrete example of simile right?

My question is whenever someone uses a literary device, he/she might have unconsciously utilized some of them at the same time?

no, it's not imagery. To be

no, it's not imagery. To be an imagery, it has to be descriptive with adjectives

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 01/26/2017 - 22:19
it is imagery

Sorry, but it is an image - by referring to the face as being 'lit', the author is drawing on a non-literal way to describe the face.

He was a tall redhead, wearing sagging jeans barely held up by a rainbow belt.

Is this sentence full of imagery?

"In cotton picking time the later afternoons revealed the harshness of Black Southern life, which in the early morning had been softened by nature's blessing of grogginess,forgetfulness and the soft lamplight.

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 12/21/2016 - 19:52
I wouldn't say it's full of imagery

This sentence mostly describes abstract concepts like afternoon, morning, Black Southern life, grogginess, and forgetfulness. The only thing in this sentence which can be seen is soft lamplight. I would say this sentence uses more personification, as in, "later afternoons revealed" and "softened by nature's blessing".

Imagery?

The air was heavy with the stench of blood, and as he looked down, the normally white floor was covered in dark, congealing liquid.

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 11/25/2016 - 21:00
REPLY <3

1) stench of blood - sense of smell (olfactory imagery)
2) dark, congealing liquid - sense of sight (visual imagery)

Not imagery

This wouldn't be imagery because it isn't depicting a mental picture, it's just someone giving a speech to some other people, not the narrator talking

Is this imagery???

Your love is like a river, that I am floating down.

Simile

Hi, this is more likely a simile. A simile is a comparison using the words "like" or "as". This sentence uses the word "like" and compares "love" and "river", claiming that "love" is similar to "river". This sentence is actually not using correct grammar either, as the correct sentence structure would have been: "Your love is like a river that I am floating down" without a comma. Hope this helped!

This is more like symbolism

This is a simile and imagery.

Your love is "like" a river, "that i am floating down." The "like" makes it a simile and the part after the "," is a form of imagery.

"then he mended the mossy wooden fence" is this imagery pls help

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 09/23/2016 - 09:09
dunno if this will help

dunno if this will help anyone reading this in the future but the answer is no. this sentence only describes the fence. the fence is mossy and wooden. imagery would be more like "as he mended the mossy wooden fence, the gloomy air filled with thick and suffocating fog, as humid as a sauna".

In "The Two Streams" by

In "The Two Streams" by Oliver Wendell Holmes, the repetition of sounds in the descriptions "sloping sides," "rushing river-tides" and "foam-flecked Oregon" are examples of which literary device used to provide imagery of nature?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 05/10/2016 - 19:36
Make it a little more descriptive

I'll go out into the frosty dark environment; the night sky black as the depths if the ocean and colder than a bucket of ice. that was terrible but something like that give it a little more.

It's a metaphor

Because it's implying that friendship is in the air, yet it's not, it means that free ship is all around.

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/08/2016 - 21:10
What technique is this?

'friendship is in the air'

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 03/05/2016 - 07:29
Friendship is in the air

I would say a metaphor. This is because friendship isnt literally in the air (for obvious reasons) and a metaphor is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable. Hope this helped :)
