User: Explain what sensory details are and why writers like Poe use them in their writing. Then, create a sentence of your own that includes at least three sensory details.

Weegy: Suddenly there shot along the path a wild light, and I turned to see whence a gleam so unusual could have issued; for the vast house and its shadows were alone behind me. [ The radiance was that of the full, setting, and blood-red moon, which now shone vividly through that once barely discernible fissure, of which I have before spoken as extending from the roof of the building, in a zigzag direction, to the base. While I gazed, the fissure rapidly widened there came a fierce breath of the whirlwind the entire orb of the satellite burst at once upon my sight my brain reeled as I saw the mighty walls rushing asunder there was a long tumultuous shouting sound like the voice of a thousand waters and the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently? Edgar Allan Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher? Word Watch Descriptive writing uses vivid images to illustrate a specific experience, person, or place. Write Angles Descriptive writing is more than scattering a few adjectives and adverbs like rice at a wedding. Rather, it means using vivid words and images to convey meaning. As you can see from this passage from Poe's short story, descriptive writing uses sensory details to paint a word picture of a person, place, scene, object, or emotion. Descriptive writing is an important part of any writing even technical pieces. That's because in addition to helping readers grasp emotions, feelings, and characters, effective descriptive writing helps explain and persuade. You can use descriptive writing in the following ways: To make scenes realistic and memorable To help readers experience an emotion To share your feelings more clearly To bring characters to life To convey key ideas, especially complex ones To help readers feel like they're on the scene Read more: Writing Well: Color My World | Infoplease.com ]
