Homework Help: College English

Posted by Marco on Wednesday, September 2, 2009 at 7:42pm.

I have been asked to present a gist statement and I am just looking to find out if I understood the concept.

Below is what I've been asked to analyze:

We see them everywhere: on billboards, in magazines, on bus placards. They come in the mail and in our Sunday newspapers: glossy pictures of women and men in silk robes, pictures of electric twin-foil shavers and Dirt Devil hand-held vacuums. And we see them on TV: living rooms with two sofas, white-lighted football stadiums, even Wild West gunfight and bloodstained murder scenes.

Images. They are so compelling that we cannot not watch them. They are so seductive that they have revolutionized human social communication. Oral and written communication are in decline because a new form of communication, communication by image, has emerged.

My gist:

Communication by images with its sizable exposure and alluring messages has overpowered the traditional methods of communication.

Am I on the right track?

Thanks
