Create this chart to record your images. Pay particular attention to the effect the image has on the reader. “To make it more interesting” or to help me understand it better are NOT valid reasons. Go deeper – HOW exactly does it help you understand or picture it better? On the back of your chart, explain in two or three sentences – the overall effect of the use of imagery in the poem – why do you think the poet chose this imagery?
Figurative Language practice– Read “Once by the Pacific” (p. 423). Write down at least three examples of Personification. Explain what is being personified, what human quality is given to the non-human object, and what the effect of this is on the reader.
