The sensory details or figurative language used to describe, arouse emotion or represent abstractions. On a physical level, imagery uses terms related to the five senses: we refer to visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory, or olfactory imagery. On a broader and deeper level, however, one image can represent more than one thing. For example, a rose may present visual imagery while also representing the color in a woman's cheeks. An author, therefore, may use complex imagery while simultaneously employing other figures of speech, especially metaphor and simile. In addition, this term can apply to the total of all the images in a work on the AP exam; pay attention to how an author creates imagery and also to the effect of that imagery.
