Imagery is the picture we form in our minds of the story we read. It can involve: visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, tactile, kinetic, and kinesthetic imagery. The author uses these imagery to translate words into a visual story that we can see and participate in within our minds. Describe the use of imagery in this Utopian novel.
