Title: Poetry


1
Poetry
  • Basic Elements of a Poem

2
To Formally Analyze Poetry,
  • We MUST explore the patterns created by the
    formal elements of literature to understand more
    deeply a texts meaning and the nuances (tiny
    details) that enrich that meaning.

3
Poetrys Formal Literary Elements
Include, but are not limited to,
  • Alliteration
  • Assonance
  • Consonance
  • Denotation
  • Connotation
  • Hyperbole
  • Imagery
  • Simile
  • Metaphor
  • Symbol

4
Alliteration
  • Alliteration occurs when the initial sounds of
    nearby words, beginning either with a consonant
    or a vowel, are repeated.
  • Examples
  • Athena and Apollo
  • Nate never knows
  • People who pen poetry

5
What do tune and food have in common?
6
Assonance!
  • Alliteration occurs at the beginning of a word
    and rhyme at the end, but assonance takes the
    middle territory. Assonance occurs when the vowel
    sound within a word matches the same sound in a
    nearby word, but the surrounding consonant sounds
    are different.
  • Examples
  • Tune" and "food" are assonant.

7
Consonance
  • Occurs when the ending sounds of words are the
    same, even if no other part of the words rhyme.
  • Luck and brick share a hard c sound

8
Denotation
  • Denotation is when you mean what you say,
    literally.
  • The porch is shady.

9
Connotation
  • Connotation is created when you use the emotional
    association of a word to imply meaning.

He is shady.
10
Hyperbole
  • Compares two unlike objects (like a simile), but
    uses extreme exaggeration.
  • The linebacker sacked the quarterback like a
    freight train without brakes.

11
Imagery
  • (1) LITERAL Describes exactly what is meant
  • The fish on the sand is a fish out of water.
  • (2) FIGURATIVE Alludes (refers) to something
    non-existent in the poem
  • I felt like a fish out of water on my first day
    of high school.

12
Simile
  • A direct comparison between two objects that have
    something in common
  • Uses like or as
  • Mom took the turn like Dale Earnhardt Jr.

13
Metaphor
  • Metaphors identify one unlike object or idea with
    another, in one or more aspects
  • Makes meaning clear
  • Her boyfriend is a pig."

14
Symbol
  • Occurs when a word (usually a color or nature
    word) suggests meaning
  • NOT to be confused with a metaphor
  • Absolutely dependant upon cultural values
  • White
  • (Western culture) good, innocent, pure
  • (Eastern culture) mourning
  • Red
  • (Western culture) anger, passion
  • (Eastern culture) happiness, happy marriage

15
