Description

Can be used to explore imagery in poetry. Once students have identified the ways a poem works (ie form, structure, language) they can focus on language and decide how that works (eg aural and visual imagery). This exercise focuses on visual imagery. The students can pick out the images they would use to illustrate the poem (which they can storyboard) then compare their choices with the film. After discussion of the effectiveness of those choices, they can work back through the images and ascribe them meanings. Students can then play around with picking out different images to see how it might affect meaning.
