Title: POETRY


1
POETRY
  • Poetry is an expression of feeling and
    originality. Just as an artist may choose water
    colors or crayons to paint a picture, a musician
    may choose the piano or drums to create a song -
    you, the poet, will choose a form and method that
    will best convey your message.

2
Writing poetry is easy if you have knowledge of
poetic forms and devices.
Edgar Allan Poe
3
Sylvia Plath
Some poems follow rules like a haiku, concrete
or the emotions poem.
4
William Shakespeare
Nikki Giovanni
Raymond Carver
Marshall Mathers
5
POETRY is a language that has rhythm and is
more intense and meaningful than prose.
6
Poetry Terms
Simile - compares two unlike things, using the
words like or as. His feet were as big as
boats.
7
Metaphor - compares two unlike things directly,
without the use of like or as. Her hair is
silk.
8
Alliteration - the repetition of consonant sounds
at the beginning of words. Peter Piper picked
a peck of pickled peppers.
9
  • Assonance- repetition of vowel sounds within
    words to create internal rhyming
  • And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the
    sideOf my darling, my
  • darling, my life and my
  • bride. (Edgar Allen Poe)

10
  • Internal Rhyme rhyme that occurs within a line
    of verse, as in the grains beyond age, the dark
    veins of her mother (Dylan Thomas)

11
Personification - assigning human qualities to
non-human things. The tropical storm slept for
two days.
12
Onomatopoeia - words that imitate sounds. Boom.
Gurgle. Bang. Plink.
13
Hyperbole - an exaggeration. I nearly died
laughing.
14
Symbolism - an object that means what it is and
also something more. Lions often symbolize
royalty.
15
Meter - how the beats are put together to form
lines of poetry. The combinations of long and
short syllables give poetry a rhythm, like music.
16
Rhythm - pattern of long and short syllables in a
line. Some words receive greater emphasis than
others. This is similar to long and short notes
in music.
17
Lyrics - the actual words poets write.
18
Mood - the overall feeling the poem creates.
19
INTERNAL RHYME - rhyming within a line. I awoke
to my fat cat climbing up my back.
20
RHYME - a pattern of words that contain similar
sounds. I went to the fair with the girl with
the golden hair.
21
STANZA - a unified group of lines in poetry.
(paragraph) VERSE - a line of poetry.
22
POETIC FORMS
Acrostic Poetry - the first letter of each line,
when read vertically, spells out a word. The
word is usually the subject of the poem.
23
J ust as I wake up A nd before I rise from bed N
ot yet look in the mirror I f I had a choice
instead C ertain that fate prevails E very day I
am at peace.
24
HAIKU
an ancient Japanese form with no rhyme. This
type of poetry has three lines and it is usually
about nature.
25
The dying plant bends (5) Dripping its life to
the ground (7) It falls
like a tear (5)
26
CONCRETE POEM - use the words and their physical
formation to convey meaning.
27
KINDS OF POETRY Lyric, Sonnet, Ode, Hymns, Songs,
Elegies, Narrative, Ballad, Folk, Epic, Romance,
Free Verse, Limerick, Haiku, Tanka, Concrete,
Cinquain, Blank Verse, Villanelle, Acrostic,
Epigram, Dramatic and more
28
Now you are ready to write your own poetry. For
your poetry book you will write - a concrete
poem, a list poem, an emotion/action poem (what
if...), a first/last line poem, a haiku, your
own poem (any form or style with at least 12
lines), and one poem analyzed.
