As she was walking through the woods she begins to have trouble seeing through the trees, because of the light and the thickness of the forest, “ The woods were deep and still. The sun made the pine needles almost too bright to look at, up where the wind rocked.” As she eases her way through the forest she encounters struggle after struggle, such as having to cross the river on a log, “Lifting her skirt, leveling her cane fiercely before her like a festival figure in some parade, she began to march across. Then she opened her eyes and she was safe on the other side,” yet she never stops her journey, because she knows that the outcome of the journey will be worth it.
To start things off, The Chrysanthemums by John Steinbeck has quite a bit of imagery to reinforce his theme of confinement and isolation. In the very beginning of the story he is already using imagery to let the readers get an image of what the valley looks like and the area around it.

The scene started out with the tramp slowly climbing up the mountain through the fierce and binding wind of the snow storm. We can safely say that the first conflict that the tramp encounter has to be nature itself. The snowstorm was a barrier that blocked the tramp from achieving his goal of obtaining gold and becoming rich. Most importantly of all, nature played a vital role in this film, in which it help drive the plot forward. For instance, when the tramp got caught in the snowstorm, he had no choice but to move inside the cabin with Black Larsen and later on meeting Jim Mckay.

It had been raining so her bare feet sloshed in the mud past the fresh flowers her mother had only laid that afternoon. He led her gently, to the shared gravestone of father and daughter, John and Alice Evans.
The approach of autumn was well on its way. “Autumn’s hand was lying heavy on the hillsides. Bracken was yellowing, heather passing from bloom, and the clumps of wild-wood taking the soft russet and purple of decline. Faint odors of wood smoke seemed to fit over the moor, and the sharp lines of the hill fastnesses were drawn as with a graving-tool against the sky.” As Ellie drove down the road she was much more aware of all her surroundings.
