Moreover, the reader visualizes the calm sea on a sunny day and fears the roaring wind before a hurricane. Yet, McCloskey allows the viewer to feel “…pleased to see that the storm-flattened sunflowers are once more lifting faces to the sun” (McCloskey 58). All things considered, McCloskey writes a story that expresses the enjoyment that readers can feel towards the weather and nature. In the picture book, Robert McCloskey uses elements of art in order to enhance the book’s message; to enjoy the weather and nature. One of the elements, color, shows the brightness of nature and allows for the reader to view the natural setting of the story.
The poem “Summer Night, Riverside” by Sara Teasdale transports readers into a young, summer night. Teasdale paints a serene scene that is easily visualized because what is seen is not the only thing thoroughly described. As a reader we are given an image with sight, smell, and feelings. You can smell the “fragrant darkness” (15) and picture the moon shining down on a “curving pathway” (6) bordered by blooming trees. The author presents the reader with a magical evening and provokes sentiment for the readers own summer nights.
Everything reflected on it was even more magnificent, the sun was brighter, the mountains were taller, the clouds were puffier and the leaves were greener. I decided to enjoy the place sitting in a stone close to the water, taking pictures and contemplating the natural spectacle. Suddenly, in my state of observation I felt that, again in the words of Neruda, my eyes flew away and merged with the stable peace of the place. It was in this state of concentration that I began to think that probably the plethora of trees that surrounded the lake were also compelled with the beauty of the lake and stood there watching and protecting it just as Heimdallr protects the gate of Asgard in the Norse
In other terms, Guin is letting us know that the sky is clear as glass, allowing the sunlight to beam directly on Omelas. Guin allows us to paint a picture of exactly what Omelas looks like. By reading this metaphor we can picture a clear blue sky with the sunlight directly gleaming on Omelas with its “white-gold” flame. The use of these metaphors in the introduction of “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”, shifts the readers towards a more positive and Utopian setting. “The crowds along the racecourse are like a field of grass and flowers in the wind.” (Lines 85-86, Guin.)
The “gleam in the sun, a soft, white note in the dun-colored landscape, and the pure blue line of the lake horizon” paints a vivid image of the calm and tranquil scene Larson has created (129). Attention to color is mentioned throughout the novel to reiterate the liveliness of the city. The “soft yellows, pinks, and purples” and “brilliant blues” all span throughout the fair, adding to the beauty and lightness of the event (267). Conversely, previously the scene was pictured as peaceful and calm, but is later in the same sentence described as having a “rugged and barren foreground” (129). The contrast seen by the audience serves as a reminder that even though things may seem tranquil and at ease, there is still an undiscovered crime taking place at the same times.
Moon and Half Dome by Ansel Adam captures my attention due to its clear and clean shot. Its black and white color helps me focus to the subject of the photo. This picture illustrates the beauty of the Half Dome under the moonlight. There are three aspects that make this picture stand out; the clear skies, the moonlight and the silhouette of the setting sun. The clear skies help define the beautiful formation of the dome.
From the very first sentence, Jackson misleads one to thinking the story is going to be something very different from what it actually is. Jackson mentions "The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny, with the fresh warmth of a full-summer day" (Jackson 252). By using descriptive Words such as "Fresh warmth" and "sunny" which all indicate happiness and comfort, Jackson sets a pleasant tone. Jackson continues stress on the beauty of the day and the brilliance of nature. This provides the positive outlook and lets the reader relax into what seems to be a comfortable setting for the story.

After this passage, Victor then moves to exclaim that he would be alright if “Wandering spirits” would “take me...away from the joys of life.” By connecting the daunting and rainy landscape to the feelings of elation and awe that envelop Victor, the reader can interpret that, unlike the beginning of the novel where Victor is accustomed to the sunny bliss of Geneva, he is instead much more at ease within the dark yet powerful landscapes of the mountains. Using the darkness of the rainy day, Shelley helps to paint a picture of the melancholy that begins to take hold of Victor’s
My paraphrase of the poem is: Alone in the woods at night, I look up at the beautiful stars. Countless amounts that will not go away, they stand still in the sky, and I am extremely lucky to see all of this beauty. There is lots of figurative language and sound devices in this poem. The figurative language
