Imagery is used in this song to create the beautiful scene of being with someone close to you during the winter time, and also it creates the sense of snow falling around you while the song is being sung. The first lyric that I found from Winter Wonderland to help support the poetic device of imagery is “Walking in a Winter Wonderland. ”(7) This phrase extends the theme of not taking winter for granted and going outdoors for a nice stroll, and enjoying the beautiful sights of winter, it even goes further with that by making you feel like you are walking along the narrator’s side. The second evidence found in the song is “As we dream by the fire.

I appreciate “Trees at the Arctic Circle” for its statements and realizations towards the ending, but favour “Arctic Rhododendrons” for its subject matter and many uses of poetic
The amount of detail that the author goes into in order to perfectly describe a scene is amazing. A good example of the descriptive terms used by WM. Paul Young is when Mack is first returning to the forest. “ The trail was treacherous, the rocks icy and slippery. Every step took concentration as he descended into the thickening forest.
He does this by angles, such as high angel. For example, Edward Scissorhands, when Edward is cutting the ice sculpture for the christmas party. When using the high angle, Edward is up high and Kim is down below. Using this angel creates feel of that they are alone, this is also when Kim realizes that she has a real love for him. The scene shows that in the moment feel from the characters.

Bierstadt had gathered the materials he needed to paint a painting of a place that he could identify as Puget Sound. Bierstadt’s artwork “Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast” was successful.

The flowers symbolize Paul’s position in society as an outcast. First, the flowers in the winter is like Paul in his community.

Crane’s short story “The Blue Hotel” is an example of naturalism because of the way he intertwines nature with his characters. For example Crane gives the wind human characteristics by descriptions like “huge arms” that were making attempts to “embrace the flakes as they sped.” He was able to stimulate emotions and human-like qualities for the raging snow storm outside. As I was reading my attention was brought to these traits while I was imagining the “long mellow cry of the blizzard” and the snow wailing as it “flung to its grave in the south”. Here he transforms the storm outside is into a chilling graveyard.
