What is imagery in poetry?
Imagery in poetry refers to the pictures or images that are conjured up in the readers mind, by the words that a poet uses in his or her poem. For example, instead of saying "wealthy woman with a dog", a poet could say, " a diamond studded collar hung from the neck of her poodle" which would indicate wealth.
Through the use of words, the poet creates images that evoke meaning in the reader's mind.
