Thinking in Images

"Poetry is a special way of thinking, it is, precisely, a way of thinking in images, a way which permits what is generally called ‘economy of mental effort,’ a way which makes for a ‘sensation of the relative ease of the process.’ Aesthetic feeling is a reaction to this economy."(Shklovsky, Victor, 1917, (translated by Lemon, L.T. & Rees, M.J. "Art as Technique")
