Allegorical vs. Realistic imagery
Allegorical imagery can be described as written work, spoken words or symbolically represented actions, objects, or figure to describe human experiences or how humans conduct themselves. In other words object or words spoken have corresponding meaning. Realistic imagery on the other hand is depiction of objects, scenes or figure as they are seen. That is depicting objects, scenes and figures the way they look or are thought to be.
In the book of Job both allegorical imagery and realistic imagery are used widely. In the first round following an outburst Job curse the day he was born. This is an allegorical imagery, the writer here wanted the readers to capture hopelessness that that Job felt after undergoing so much suffering .This clearly captures his feelings of regrets and can also be taken to mean that he wished that he was not born. This kind of hopelessness and regret also very common to humans, especially when were confronted with situations that we have no control over like when one is diagnosed with a terminal disease. The use of realistic imagery can be derived from description of an innocent man by his friend Eliphaz. He describes the innocent as those without suffering while those with sufferings as the wicked.
