Animal imagery…


An interesting discovery I’m finding is the use of animal imagery in a scene
I am working on for a future, perhaps, full-length play. I’m not sure just
yet where I want the scene to fit into the play; nevertheless, I’m finding
it interesting and intriguing to consider the use of animal imagery
in terms of textual vs. contextual analysis configured with an always
challenging theme of divorce. In this scene is a couple who find it difficult
to talk about how they feel–not just with one another-but the reasons
why they do what they do, which ultimately leads them to a divorce.
A feline of all things seems to be a foil for the scene; and I’ll see,
however, where it takes me. The theme is now a curiosity for me, since
drawing on experiences seems a bit more challenging these days. I’m learning
that from wanting to synthesize the story of the affair–actually a segment of
it with the feline–can be done; yet the way I need to organize it
is taking shape–at least I think so. And the continuity of it, I feel, is
much better, and I’m thinking of providing a little more of the impact, of
course chaos happens from the beginning–perhaps, not toward the end. We’ll see what happens. But I’m excited about the progress and the shape that the scene is taking.
So onward! 🙂
