The fanciest dive that ever was dove
Was done by Melissa of Coconut grove.
She bounced on the board and flew in the air
With a twist of her head and a twirl of her hair. She did thirty-four jackknives, backflipped and spun, Quadruple gainered, and reached for the sun, And then somersaulted nine times and a quarter— And looked down and saw that the pool had no water Fancy Dive by Shel SilversteinSlide9
How is it created?
Imagery is created when an author uses sensory language to bring a scene to life.
Sensory Language: detailed language making use of the 5 senses
Solid imagery is like a fine painting. The author is an artist who paints pictures with his words.
With good imagery the reader see’s exactly what the author wants you to see and nothing more.
Good imagery also adds depth to the understanding of the poem. Each image is meaningful. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be there.Slide12
