    Just a straightforward question that I probably should know by now... I was wondering if anybody could tell me the definition of language, imagery and form in poetry.
    Also critical terminology.
    Thank you!

    Imagery is something that is visually descriptive - it appeals to the senses.
    Form is the particular way something is written, for example Shakespeare's 'Shall I compare thee to a Summer's Day' is a sonnet.
    Language is the words used in the poem. It's the choice of these words, that determine the tone/style of the poem.
    Critical terminology is the words used to describe techniques etc. Examples would include alliteration, assonance, polysyndeton and enjambment.

    Hope this helps!
