let’s talk imagery! imagery, arguably vital to any good piece, is roughly defined as the representation of one thing by another thing.
this representation is most often constructed by either a simile or a metaphor.
a simile uses “like” or “as” eg: “i wandered lonely as a cloud” (william woodsworth),
and a metaphor, does the same thing but the language is implicit, or simply said, does not use “like” or “as” eg: “her song trembling the twigs and small branches” (theodore roethke).
