A death-like mist pervaded through the trees enveloping them in a gelid, cutting fog. A silent, lonely willow shivered as the still, biting air engulfed its aged branches in an icy cage and suffocated its stiffened lungs, causing each freezing breath to drag. Crusted leaves stacked one on top of the other as

Wearing a crooked blue coat, which appears to flow, serially, into a torrent of aqua, indigo and ultramarine behind him, he holds up two elongated hands collapsing on both side of his hairless, skull-like
Anthropomorphism means “the attributing of human characteristics and purposes to inanimate objects, animals, plants, or other natural phenomena, or to God.” (www.dictionary.com) In easy words we can describe the term as giving human qualities to inhuman things or ‘personifying’ someone or something. As a general example we can say that: “The old banyan tree looked sadly at the river in front of it.” Here, the word “looked sadly” depicts the banyan tree with a sense – that it ‘looked’ and an emotion – ‘sadly’, although trees do not have these ‘human’ qualities within themselves.

In the year of 1644 the French artist Claude Lorrain created a painting titled the “Ideal View of Trioli”. The painting that consists of two outstanding mediums; oil and canvas now resides in the New Orleans Museum of Art. The majority of the canvas focuses on the background that consists of a eerily creepy sunset in which the orange and pink colors combine perfectly along with the clouds and the ruins of what looks to be a decrepit roman city atop a rock covered mountain. Furthermore the city’s ruins in the background inhere a rounded building surrounded by tan columns. In addition to the columns that are stationed in the middle of the portrait there is a bridge that crosses a small, elegant waterfall on the left side of the background that ripples down the tan colored mountainside.
Infact many of his pieces includes examples of similes, metaphors, and personification. These different forms of figurative language help the reader create a "mental picture" inside the mind. For example,”They walked in single file. The entrance to the path was like a sort of arch leading into a gloomy tunnel made by two great trees that leant together, too old and strangled with ivy and hung with lichen to bear more than a few blackened leaves. The path itself was narrow and wound in and out among the trunks.”

This world is full of many uncertainties. Some are pleasant surprises, while others become life-altering tragedies. Kevin Hazzard portrays such beautiful disasters in his book “A Thousand Naked Strangers,” which recalls his unimaginably insane encounters as an EMT and paramedic in Atlanta, Georgia.
