Image is a word (or more than one word) appealing to at least one of our senses, and thereby generating a response in the reader. Of our five senses (visual, auditory, olfactory, tactile, and gustatory), the visual is the strongest.
Image pattern is the repetition of these images, not necessarily in interrupted succession.
Motif is a repeated pattern of any type within a text. Note the image pattern is a motif but a motif is not always an image pattern. An image pattern is repeated reference to a particular sense, and since a motif is a repeated pattern, we can say that an image pattern is a motif.

Mark with different colors each type of image/image pattern/motif noted in the given passage. If the text is an extract from a larger work that you have studied, think about the context surrounding the extract, how that helps you clarify its meaning.
•Is one color predominant? Why?
•Is there some logical progression of imagery/motif, from one type to another? Is the progression illogical? Why?

•Is a specific tone or mood created by the marked material?
