Usu­ally it is thought that im­agery makes use of par­tic­u­lar words that cre­ate vis­ual rep­re­sen­ta­tion of ideas in our minds. How­ever, this idea is but par­tially cor­rect. Im­agery, to be re­al­is­tic, turns out to be more com­plex than just a pic­ture. The word “im­agery” is as­so­ci­ated with men­tal pic­tures. We imag­ine these pic­tures through the mind’s eye. These word pic­tures are called images. The images or im­agery help us to see vividly or clearly the things or ideas which are be­ing de­scribed.
