Abstract

The use of Imagery is a good characteristic of any literary artist; it is defined as a mythical device, which makes illustrative representation of the ideas of the poet, novelist to create a fictional and imaginary world in the mind of the readers. The ability of a poet or novelist to effectively use the imagery enables him to convey his message by creating an image in a single line rather than writing a whole book full of arguments. In this paper the literary work of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, jibran khalil jibran is reviewed. He successfully employs this figure of speech in his writings. It is observed that he is amongst the best writers who utilized all distinctive types of imagery in his work which deserves to be looked into for artistic value. He used imagery, which is a powerful tool of literature to convey his philosophical ideas.
