There are many scenes that take place in a book, some are more important than others. In the book I read over the summer, “2001: Space Odyssey” by Arthur Clarke. A few of the scenes were very important and without them the book would have been a waste. Here are three examples of importance in scenes from my book.
Frank Poole is sent to the moon of earth to explore a strange uncovered artifact. This artifact turns out to be a signaling device put on the moon by aliens millions of years before the time when it was discovered. What happens next in this scene is fairly important. When the artifact, named TMA-1, was exposed to the sun for the first time in over 3 million years it send out a signal that was traced by back to one of the moons around Saturn. This scene was practically what this book was based on. Therefore I believe it is important.
Another important scene is when astronomer David Bowman discovers that his mission where he is suppose to fly around Pluto and come back is not his real mission. The cause of him being sent on a decoy mission was so he could attempt his real mission without alarming the public. David’s real mission was to search for the place where TMA-1 had sent that signal. He had to land or at least find evidence that the signal was sent to one of Saturn’s moons, and also to see if intelligent life was supported there.
One last important scene was when David Bowman is taken threw a portal and to a planet occupied by aliens. He is then confronted with every second of his past. This sudden remembrance is forced upon by the aliens. He turns from a man to a child in no time and is reborn into a superhuman. He flies back to earth threw space time dimensions with no trouble at all with oxygen or anything.
Many scenes are more important than others in every book. In this book that was the case. I chose to share 3 important scenes in this essay although there are many more.

LiteratureLiterature IMAGERY The term imagery has various applications. Generally, imagery includes all kinds of sense perception (not just visual pictures). In a more limited application, the term describes visible objects only. But the term is perhaps most commonly used to describe figurative language, which is as a theme in literature.
