PoetrySlide2

Form-

the structure of the writing

(what it looks like on the page)

Innocent

If love were a crime,

And you were jailed because you claimed that you loved me,

And evidence was sought of your guilt or innocence,

You’d get away

scott

free.Slide3

All poems are broken up into

lines

.

The length of each line and where it breaks, or ends, contributes to the poem’s meaning and sounds.

Lunchroom

I was so hungry

I could have eaten my algebra book.

I smelled what we were having

before I even saw it.

Mystery Meat, green mushy peas,

instant potatoes with lumpy gravy,

bread pudding, and milk.

It’s a good thing I like milk.Slide4

A

stanza

is a group of lines.

Stanzas work together to convey the overall message of the poem.

Fog

The fog comes

on little cat feet.

It sits looking

over harbor and city

on silent haunches

and then moves on.Slide5

Just as a story has a narrator, a poem has a voice that “talks” to readers.

This voice, or

speaker

, is sometimes a fictional character rather than the poet.

Mother to Son

Well, son, I’ll tell you:

Life for me

ain’t

been no crystal stair.

It’s had tacks in it.

And splinters,

And boards torn up,

And places with no carpet on the floor-

Bare. -

Langston HughesSlide6

Sound DevicesSlide7

Rhythm

is the pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables in each line.

A regular pattern of rhythm is called

meter

.

The sun did not shine;

It was too wet to play,

So we sat in the house

All that cold, cold, wet day.

-Dr. SeussSlide8

Rhyme

is the repetition of sounds at the ends of words, as in

hat

and

cat

.

Rhyme

scheme is the pattern that the end-rhyming words follow. To identify rhyme scheme, assign a letter to each sound.

‘Twas

the night before Christmas,

A

When all through the

house

B

Not a creature was stirring,

C

Not even a

mouse

;

BSlide9

Repetition

is a technique in which a sound, word, phrase, or line is repeated for emphasis or unity.

Repetition often helps to reinforce meaning or create an appealing rhythm.

Mi Madre

I say

feed me.

She serves red prickly pear on a spike cactus.

I say

tease me.

She sprinkles raindrops in my face on a sunny day.

I say

frighten me.

She shouts thunder, flashes lightning.

I say

comfort me,

She invites me to lay on her firm body.Slide10

Alliteration

is the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of words.

“Over a

B

unsen

b

urner

b

ubbled a

b

ig earthenware dish of stew” -

A Wrinkle in Time

The repetition of the “b” sound reproduces the motion of the stew simmering in its pot.

S

ay to them,

S

ay to the down-keepers.

The

s

un-

s

lappers,

The

s

elf-

s

poilers, -

Gwendolyn BrooksSlide11

Assonance

is the repetition of vowel sounds in a series of words:

e.g., the words “cry” and “side” have the same vowel sound so they are said to be in assonance.

It

had tacks

in it,” -

Langston Hughes

Slide12

“Afternoon on a Hill”

I will

be the gladdest thing-a

Under the

sun

!-b

I will

touch a hundred flowers-c

And not pick

one

.-b

I will

look at cliffs and clouds-d

With quiet eyes,-e

Watch the wind

bow down

the grass,-f

And the grass rise.-e

And when lights begin to show-g

Up from the town,-h

I will

m

ark which

i

And then start down!-hSlide13

Imagery

and

Figurative LanguageSlide14

Imagery

is defined as language that appeals to one or more of your senses-sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.

Vivid images help readers more clearly understand what a poet does.

“They were standing in a sunlit field, and the air about them was moving with the delicious air about them that comes only on the rarest of spring days when the sun’s touch is gentle and the apple blossoms are just beginning to unfold.” (sight and smell)

“’Oh, my dears,’ came the new voice, a rich voice with the warmth of a woodwind, the clarify of a trumpet, the mystery of an English horn.” (sound)Slide15

A

simile

is a comparison of two things using the word

like

or

as

.

The sun spun like

A tossed coin.

It whirled on the azure blue sky,

It clattered into the horizon,

It clicked in the slot,

And neon-lights popped

And blinked “Time expired,”

As on a parking meter.

-Oswald

Mbuyiseni

MtshaliSlide16

Metaphors

are comparisons of two things that does

not

use the word

like

or

as

.

In the pond in the park

all things are doubled:

Long buildings hang and

wriggle gentle.

Chimneys

are bent legs bouncing

on clouds below.”

-May

SwensenSlide17

Extended metaphor

refers to a metaphor that extends over several lines, stanzas, or an entire poem.

But all they want to do

is tie the poem to a chair with rope

and torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hose

to find out what it really means.

-Billy Collins

The poem is compared to a person being tortured.Slide18

Personification

is a description of an object, animal, or idea as if it has human qualities and emotions.

Directly ahead of her was the circular building, its

walls

glowing with violet flame, its silvery roof pulsing with a light that seemed to Meg to be

insane.”

“The little

waves

with their soft, white

hands

.”Slide19

Shift: A change that is often intentional.

(Could include point of view, scenery, a new understanding within the speaker, mood…)

Sonnet 130:

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;

Coral is far more red than her lips' red;

If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;

If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.

I have seen roses damasked, red and white,

But no such roses see I in her cheeks;

And in some perfumes is there more delight

Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.

I love to hear her speak, yet well I know

That music hath a far more pleasing sound;

I grant I never saw a goddess go;

My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.

   

And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare

   As any she belied with false compare
