The Image according to Imagist Ezra Pound In a Station of the Metro (1913) The apparition of these faces in the crowd: Petals on a wet, black bough Pound’s 3 “Made-Up” Terms The three things that writing must adhere to: • MELOPOEIA : The sound • LOGOPOEIA: The logic • PHANOPOEIA: The image Melopoeia any elements that contribute to sound • • Cacophony (harsh, discordant sounds) Euphony (soothing pleasant sounds) • Rhythm • Rhyme • Assonance • Consonance • Alliteration • Blank Space (does silence have a (foot/meter) (end rhyme/ internal rhyme/ rhyme scheme) ("Do you like blue?", the "oo" sound is repeated) (All mammals named Sam are clammy - repetition of consonant sounds within the words) sound?) (sally sells seashells) Logopoeia What is the form? Why? What does it mean? • The Content (what it’s all about. The meaning behind the words) • The Form (stanzas, lines, paragraphs, poem, essay, short story, novel, etc) • The Author’s Purpose • The Intended Audience Phanopoeia It’s nearly impossible to write without imagery. Two Kinds of Image: 1.Figurative One thing is said while something else is meant & 2. Literal Phanopoeia 1. Figurative • Simile: He is as big as a mountain • Metaphor: He is a mountain • Personification: The ancient car groaned into third gear Phanopoeia 2. Literal The 7 senses YES SEVEN!!! 1. Visual (Sight) 2. Auditory (Hearing) 3. Olfactory (Smell) 4. Tactile (Touch, Temperature, Texture) 5. Gustatory (Taste) 6. Organic (awareness of heartbeat, pulse, breathing, digestion) 7. Kinesthetic (awareness of muscle tension and movement) The Literal Visual Image Sight Shall I say, I have gone at dusk through narrow streets And watched the smoke that rises from the pipes Of lonely men in shirt-sleeves, leaning out of windows?… The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot The Literal Auditory Image Sound If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs From Dulce Et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen The Literal Olfactory Image Smell • When I breathe into my hand I smell oranges. • all powdered sugar and honey in the glazed caramel air by Ronald Wallace The Literal Tactile Image Touch Your nose would be a source of dread were it attached atop your head, it soon would drive you to despair, forever tickled by your hair. From Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face by Jack Prelutsky The Literal Gustatory Image Taste Glowing wine on his palate lingered swallowed. Crushing in the winepress grapes of Burgundy. Sun's heat it is. Seems to a secret touch telling me memory. Touched his sense moistened remembered. Hidden under wild ferns on Howth below us bay sleeping: sky. No sound. The sky...full lips full open, kissed her mouth. Yum. Softly she gave me in my mouth the seedcake warm and chewed. Mawkish pulp her mouth had mumbled sweetsour of her spittle. Joy: I ate it: joy. From Ulysses Chapter 8 (The Lestrygonians) By James Joyce The Organic Image heartbeat, pulse, breathing, digestion More happy love! more happy, happy love! For ever warm and still to be enjoy'd, For ever panting, and for ever young; All breathing human passion far above, That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and cloy'd, A burning forehead, and a parching tongue. from Ode on a Grecian Urn -Keats The Literal Kinesthetic Image muscle tension and movement O World! O Life! O Time! On whose last steps I climb, Trembling at that where I had stood before; When will return the glory of your prime? No more -Oh, never more!
