Here are some of these phrases:
- "The use of the [Insert any ridiculous adjective] imagery..."
e.g, Owen's use of macabre imagery places the reader in the shoes of the soldier, helping them to envision life on the front, evoking feelings of sympathy, and exposing them to the true horrors of war.
This point has been one which has caused a great deal of humour in the past two years, with an almost unanimous favourite being when our English teacher told us that when Romeo says, "God! Direct my sail" there is navigational imagery... sigh.
Although on my last day, whilst getting my shirt signed, I requested that she (our English teacher) wrote me a message on imagery, the resultant writing was;
"Everything, Colm, can be a type of imagery. 'It paints a picture in your head'"Anyways...
- Enjambment increases narrative flow (when you have nothing left to say, this will always do)
- ...which increases the scale and importance of the article. (I found myself writing this a worrying amount when doing the media texts.)
I'll post more as I think of them, and till then, have fun revising! ;D
