u / u / he thinks too much such men are dan ger ous Part C Directions: Read the lines below from Act I, sc. iii. In one well-written paragraph, describe the effect imagery has to help build character, to illustrate feelings, and/or to create mood. Cassius: Why all these fires, why all these gliding ghosts, /Why birds and beasts from quality and kind, /Why old men, fools, and children calculate, /Why all these things change from their ordinance/ Their natures, and preformed faculties, / To monstrous quality— why, you shall find/ That heaven hath infused them with these spirits/ To make them instruments of fear and warning/ Unto some monstrous state. Imagery is a figurative language device that is used to “paint a picture” in the mind of the reader to develop further understanding. “Gliding ghosts” sets an ominous tone to serve as a reminder of the past. The line “old men, fools, and children” illustrates that every soul was trying to figure out how everything was changing. Descriptive words, such as “monstrous” liken the
change that has occurred to being horrifying and evil, like a monster. This passage demonstrates how the change that occurred was negative, but said it in a more effective way than “Change was bad.”.
