    How does the author enable the reader to share the experience of the main character? Patrick Suskind’s use of visual imagery captures the audiences’ sense of smell by dragging the reader into this world of hideous stench. Perfume is unique as it creates a reality by ‘painting a picture’ in the mind of the reader through the olfactory senses. Suskind does, on many occasions, manipulate the readers’ basic instincts through the novel’s protagonist, Jean Baptiste Grenouille

    If visual imagery and visual perception shared many of the same processes, then much of what is known to date about perception may be used and adapted to be able to understand the more internal and ambiguous process of visual imagery. The question is how much of mental imagery is actually a part of visual perception? The concept of a ‘unitary mechanism’ has been recurrently mentioned in the text, although little has been said about what it means and implies. This is a term coined by Stephen Kosslyn

    men walk the length of the wall to assess and repair the year’s wear and tear. Frost’ writing style invites the reader to probe the need for communication or, more precisely, the way people put up walls to create barriers between themselves. The visual imagery of the wall helps the reader to shift from just seeing the wall as a basic, natural setting to an abstract consideration of human behavior. In the first stanza of the poem it establishes the sense of mystery, a true color of atmosphere, “something”

    “yellow wood” and “wanted wear” draw attention as a diversion from the quick pace of the loose iambic rhythm. Combining literary devices like rhythm and alliteration add to the effect of the poem, and to its other elements, such as metaphor and visual imagery. Set in a forest illuminated with “yellow” landscape and the brightness of “morning” sun, the traveler’s attitude adds another level of light to the lightness of the day. Frost creates a cheerful autumn atmosphere, naturally leading his character

    works.  In William Shakespeare's "Sonnet 16" he addresses this subject through the use of literary devices.  These devices indicate how the progress of seasons cannot be controlled by words alone.  The passing of time is displayed through paradox and imagery, but it is overcome by the ceaseless life of progeny, unlike the feeble words of Shakespeare's sonnet. Change and age help determine time.  Shakespeare uses paradox to help convey change and relate it to the past.  He says to "fortify yourself

    they weren't constantly forcing me to look at the world around me. This is an article of questions, of seeking answers, of wondering if, indeed, there are answers. Stone's film is extreme in every way. Extreme in its violence. Extreme in its visual imagery, flashing hyper-speed bits of reality which don't quite register in one's mind.

Gallipoli uses creative and experienced cinematography to effectively send a visual message to the viewer without overstating its intent. This filmic device makes the director a successful yet subtle storyteller. This is especially obvious in the scene where Archie and Frank are crossing the dried up lake bed in an effort to reach
