This well represents an outsider’s perspective on wells; Heaney’s use of imagery and descriptive language creates a clear separation.Schaefer, R. S. (2017). Music in the brain: Imagery and memory.

‘I Love Trying to Make the Viewer Self-Conscious’: How Rising
Personal Helicon‘ is a regularly structured poem consisting of five stanzas, each a quatrain (four lines). The poem has a full rhyme scheme, alternating between complete rhyme and incomplete, or slant, rhyme. The variation in rhyme, meter and line length all contribute to the visual and mental connection to childhood: the irregularities and chaos. By keeping the stanzas the same length throughout the poem, Heaney effectively tames the chaos that is childhood, making ‘Personal Helicon’ appear controlled and organized from a visual standpoint. While it is used a lot to create an image or description in the reader's head, it is also used a lot to make the reader feel a certain way, or as a way of symbolism.

Heaney felt that the only place truly his was the well in the yard, which was both fascinating to him and beneficial to the family. Considering the income brought in by the parents and consequently split between eleven people, Heaney neither got any money for entertainment nor was there any. The family lived in rural Northern Ireland, first on a farm between the towns of Castledawson and Toomebridge and later in the village of Bellaghy. Figurative language is a “tool” to be used in imagery and other literary devices, such as metaphors, onomatopoeia, personification, similes, and hyperbole, to describe something.

Gissurarson, L. R. (1992). Reported auditory imagery and its relationship with visual imagery. Journal of Mental Imagery, 16(3–4), 117–122. Although not directly assessed in our study, mental imagery modalities can frequently co-occur (e.g., visual imagery of a car can be accompanied by auditory imagery of the engine sound; also see Intons-Peterson, 1983; Spence & Deroy, 2013), something that could boost their association even when measured independently of each other as multiple unimodal imagery types. Furthermore, BAIS, which is an auditory imagery measure, in the instructions also uses visual imagery when constructing the context of auditory imagery. As for VMIQ-2, although it measures movement, only one subscale assesses kinesthetic aspects and the rest are associated to visual imagery when observing movement of others or the participant, for example, VMIQ-EVI and VMIQ-IVI, which could also explain the correlations we found between all subscales of VMIQ-2 and VVIQ. Our findings provide support for an underlying stimulus modality-general mechanism in relation to vividness of visual, auditory, and motor stimulus modalities. Previous studies have implicated the long-term memory as well as the working memory as the underlying systems for vividness of visual and auditory imagery (Baddeley & Andrade, 2000). However, more research is needed to extend this hypothesis to motor imagery, preferably measuring imagery in experimental settings (cf. Gelding et al., 2015) at the moment it occurs. If the relations reported here are confirmed and their mechanisms are identified, this would have implications for transfer effects between modalities and relevant health interventions (e.g., in movement rehabilitation where auditory imagery cues are used effectively to regularize movement; Satoh & Kuzuhara, 2008; Schaefer et al., 2014).
