Imagery in Dsires Baby In Dsires Baby Kate Chopin uses imagery throughout the story when describing human emotion and the setting where the story takes place From the beginning Chopin starts with the shadow of the big stone pillar that Desiree was found sleeping in Many times in the body of the story you can almost feel the emotions of Dsire as Chopin describes her happiness and sadness In the end Armand finds out the truth that his blood is from the race that is cursed with the brand of slavery 181 From the beginning of the story you get a clear picture of what type of person Dsire was As a child she was beautiful and gentle affectionate and sincere the idol of Valmond 178 It is not a wonder that Armand fell in love with her as if struck by a pistol shot 178 after he rode by on his horse You can almost see him as a knight in shining armor coming to take away the woman he loves He was so passionate about this beautiful affectionate young woman and this passion swept along like an avalanche or like a prairie fire 178 In reading these words one can almost see the fire burning in Armands heart for Dsire Continuing with this imagery Chopin uses Madame Valmond to describe LAbri the home where Armand and Dsire live As she reaches the house she shuddered at the first sight of it as she always did 178 This starts the reader off with an image of a cold and unhappy place that had not known the gentle presence of a mistress 178 since Armands mother had died Chopin reinforces this image with a description of the roof that came down steep and black like a cowl 178 As a reader you begin to wonder how a woman like Dsire could live in such a place Is it only love that holds her
