Today we discussed sensory language and why authors use it. Sensory language works like virtual reality. The more descriptive the language is, the more the reader can imagine what it would be like to be in the story. Look through the lesson for examples of sensory language.
We looked at the sensory language that Virgil used in The Aeneid. How did Virgil’s description of Aeneas’ descent into The Underworld influence Jan Brueghel when he painted Aeneas & Sybil in The Underworld.
In class, you were asked to annotate the painting using notability. Find the textual evidence/ sensory language from the Book VI of The Aeneid that influenced Brueghel when he created his painting. See the lesson for details and homework.
