Imagery in the Martian Chronicles

Smell: " Inhale the rich smell of ham and mayonnaised pickles. Listen to the liquid gurgle of orange soda in warming bottles." page 88 from "The Musicians."

Touch: "The dark river going between shops, on wheels and horses and in dusty shoes." page 93 from "Way Up In the Middle of the Air."

Sound: "In the morning, the brass band played a mournful dirge." page 48 from "The Third Expedition."

Sight: "The rockets came like locusts, swarming and settling in blooms of rosy smoke."  page 78 from  "The Locusts."

Taste: "Best hotdogs on two worlds! Best onions and chili and mustard! All three hot dogs boiling, the buns warm, the chili cooking, the onions peeled and diced." page 133 from "The Off Season."
