Use of Images in Poem in October

           Being a Surrealist, Dylan Thomas eases the riches of language from the boundaries of rationality. Strong surrealistic imagery is evident in condensed expressions like "mussel-pooled", "heron-priested shore", "birds of the winged-trees", "flying my name", "a springful of Larks", "sea-wet church", "the size of a snail", "the castle/brown as owls", " parables of sunlight". These surreal images invokes nostalgia.
