LETS LEARN ABOUT SOME POETRY!
2
  • Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of
    the world
  • -Percy Bysshe Shelley

3
  • Organizational Devices in Poetry
  • VerseA line of poetry
  • CoupletTwo lines of rhymed poetry.
  • StanzaAn organizational pattern of verse.
  • QuatrainA four line stanza or poem.

4
FORM
  • Form is the poems structure, or the way the
    words are arranged on the page.
  • Lines are group into stanzas, which function like
    paragraphs in prose. Each stanza plays a part
    in conveying the overall message of the poem.

5
  • Traditional
  • Organic
  • Characteristics does not follow established
    rules of form
  • Does not have a regular pattern of rhythm and may
    not rhyme at all
  • May use unconventional spelling, punctuation, and
    grammar
  • Forms free verse, concrete poetry
  • Characteristics follows fixed rules, such as a
    specified number of lines
  • Has a regular pattern of rhythm and/or rhythm
  • Forms epic, ode, ballad, sonnet, haiku, limerick

SONNET (TRADITIONAL)
  • Made up of 14 lines, commonly written in iambic
    pentameter. There are two types Petrarchan and
    Shakespearean. A Shakespearean sonnet consists of
    three quatrains and a final couplet. The rhyme
    scheme is abab cdcd efef gg.
  • A Petrarchan, or Italian, sonnet rhyme scheme is
    abba abba cde cde. This consists of an octave (8
    lines) and a sestet (6 lines). The octave usually
    introduces a problem and the sestet provides some
    sort of solution.

8
POETIC ELEMENTS
  • Like music, language has rhythm. The pattern of
    stressed and unstressed syllables in each line
    creates the rhythm. Rhyme can occur at the end
    of the lines as end rhyme or within the lines as
    internal rhyme.
  • A regular pattern of rhythm is called a meter. A
    regular pattern of rhyme is called a rhyme
    scheme.

9
  • Sound device
  • Example
  • Repetition
  • A sound, word, phrase, or line that is repeated
    for emphasis and unity.
  • Alliteration
  • repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning
    of words
  • Assonance
  • repetition of vowel sounds in words that dont
    end with the same consonant
  • Consonance
  • repetition of consonant sounds within and at the
    end of words
  • Back off from this poem.
  • Back off from this poem.
  • Which circle slowly like a silken swish
  • deep-eyed and deer in herds
  • Whose nest is in a watered shoot

10
METER
  • To identify the poems meter, you have to break
    each line into smaller units, called feet. A
    foot consists of one stressed syllable and one or
    two unstressed ones. Look at the type and the
    number of feet in each line and combine them to
    define the meter, for example, iambic pentameter.

11
  • Types of feet
  • Iamb (reSIST)- consists of an unstressed followed
    by a stressed syllable
  • Trochee (ABsent)- consists of a stressed followed
    by an unstressed syllable
  • Spondee (GOAL LINE)- consists of two stressed
    syllables
  • Number of feet
  • trimeter (3)
  • tetrameter (4)
  • pentameter (5)

13
IMAGERY AND FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE
  • Figurative language communicates meanings beyond
    the literal meaning of words. Simile, metaphor,
    hyperbole, personification, and onomatopoeia are
    some examples.
  • Figurative language is more descriptive and
    evokes a stronger emotion.
  • Literal He was angry
  • Figurative He burned with anger.

14
TERMS TO KNOW...

    the words like or as

    or as
  • Personification
  • a description of an object, an animal, or a
    place in human terms,
