POETRY POETRY A type of literature that expresses ideas, feelings, or tells a story in a specific form (usually using lines and stanzas)
POINT OF VIEW IN POETRY POET The poet is the author of the poem. SPEAKER The speaker of the poem is the narrator of the poem.
POETRY FORM FORM - the appearance of the words on the page LINE - a group of words together on one line of the poem STANZA - a group of lines arranged together
A word is dead When it is said, Some say. I say it just Begins to live That day. KINDS OF STANZAS Couplet = a two line stanza Triplet (Tercet) = a three line stanza Quatrain
= a four line stanza Quintet = a five line stanza Sestet (Sextet) = a six line stanza Septet = a seven line stanza Octave = an eight line stanza SOUND EFFECTS RHYTHM The beat created by
the sounds of the words in a poem Rhythm can be created by meter, rhyme, alliteration and refrain. METER A pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables. Meter occurs when the stressed and unstressed
syllables of the words in a poem are arranged in a repeating pattern. When poets write in meter, they count out the number of stressed (strong) syllables and unstressed (weak) syllables for each line. They they repeat the pattern throughout the poem. METER cont. FOOT - unit of meter. A foot can have two or
three syllables. Usually consists of one stressed and one or more unstressed syllables. TYPES OF FEET The types of feet are determined by the arrangement of stressed and
unstressed syllables. RHYME Words sound alike because they share the same ending vowel and consonant sounds. (A word always rhymes with itself.)
LAMP STAMP Share the short a vowel sound Share the combined mp consonant sound END RHYME A word at the end of one line rhymes with a
word at the end of another line Hector the Collector Collected bits of string. Collected dolls with broken heads And rusty bells that would not ring. INTERNAL RHYME A word inside a line rhymes with another word on the same line. Once upon a midnight dreary, while I
pondered weak and weary. From The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe NEAR RHYME a.k.a imperfect rhyme, close rhyme The words share
EITHER the same vowel or consonant sound BUT NOT BOTH ROSE LOSE Different vowel sounds (long o and oo sound) Share the same
consonant sound RHYME SCHEME A rhyme scheme is a pattern of rhyme (usually end rhyme, but not always). Use the letters of the alphabet to represent sounds to be able to visually see the pattern. (See next slide for an example.)
SAMPLE RHYME SCHEME The Germ by Ogden Nash A mighty creature is the germ, Though smaller than the pachyderm. His customary dwelling place Is deep within the human race. His childish pride he often pleases By giving people strange diseases. Do you, my poppet, feel infirm? You probably contain a germ. a
a b b c c a a CONSONANCE Similar to alliteration EXCEPT . . . The repeated consonant sounds can be
anywhere in the words silken, sad, uncertain, rustling . . ASSONANCE Repeated VOWEL sounds in a line or lines of poetry. (Often creates near rhyme.) Lake Fate

Five Syllables Seven Syllables Five Syllables An old silent pond . . . A frog jumps into the pond. Splash! Silence again. SHAKESPEAREAN SONNET A fourteen line poem with a specific rhyme scheme.
The poem is written in three quatrains and ends with a couplet. The rhyme scheme is abab cdcd efef gg Shall I compare thee to a summers day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summers lease hath all too short a date. Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed; And every fair from fair sometimes declines, By chance or natures changing course untrimmed. But thy eternal summer shall not fade Nor lose possession of that fair thou owst; Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade, When in eternal lines to time thou growst So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. NARRATIVE POEMS A poem that tells a
story. Generally longer than the lyric styles of poetry because the poet needs to establish characters and a plot. Examples of Narrative Poems The Raven The Highwayman
The Cremation of Sam McGhee Ballad A poem that expresses the feelings or thoughts of a speaker rather than telling a story
Example of Ballad Poetry The Cremation of Sam McGee FREE VERSE POETRY Unlike metered poetry, free verse poetry does NOT have any repeating patterns of
stressed and unstressed syllables. Does NOT have rhyme. Free verse poetry is very conversational sounds like someone talking with you. A more modern type of poetry.
