Visibility by Italo Calvino
While some of Italo Calvino's ideas needed more thought in "Visibility" an idea that stuck out to me easily was that imagination is a way of attaining knowledge outside the individual. Imagination opens many different outlets for the human being. Visibility creates the difference between the two types of the imaginative process. The first being at the word which arrives at the visual image, example: writing, reading, and directing. The second type starts with the visual image and arrives at its verbal expression. The second can be when viewing a piece of art and it then connects with a word in your mind to give meaning. I think many people can relate to the first type of imagination. It is very common for people to think out something on paper, organize it, plan it and then perform it out.
