Transcript of The Odyssey: Imagery

The Odyssey Imagery "The Cyclops' rams were handsome,
fat, with heavy fleeces, a dark violet." "So with our brand we bored that great eye socket while
blood ran out around the red-hot bar. Eyelid and lash were
seared; the peirced ball hissed broiling, and the roots popped." "...till the sun dipped, and all the
ways grew dark upon the fathomless
unresting sea." "When the young Dawn with fingertips
of rose touched the world..." Imagery: the formation of mental images, figures,
or likenesses of things. "By heaven! when she vomited, all the sea was like a cauldron seething over intense fire, when the mixture suddenly heaves and rises." As Circe spoke, Dawn mounted her golden throne, and on the first rays Circe left me, taking her way like a great goddess up the island. "A man surfcasting on a point of rock for bass or mackerel, whipping his long rod to drop the sinker and the bait far out, will hook a fish and rip it from the surface to dangle wriggling through the air..." Homer is comparing Scylla eating the men to a fishermen catching a fish. Created by: Morgan Woods and Joshua Abee
