Transcript of Copy of Poetic Devices in Music Lyrics
Terminology Comparing two unlike things
using the words "like" or "as" Simile Repeated words in a verse
that start with the same letter Alliteration A type of character, detail, image, or situation that appears in literature from around the world and throughout history.
Ex: the damsel in distress Imagery Now let's go back through the lyrics to see if we can find other poetic devices in each one! Katy Perry, "Firework"
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards,
One blow from caving in?
Do you ever feel already buried deep?
6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there's still a chance for you
'Cause there's a spark in you
You just gotta ignite the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July Metaphor Comparing of two unlike things that
DOES NOT use the words "like" or "as" Louis Armstrong, "What a Wonderful World"
I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.
Imagery Descriptive words appealing to our five senses which forms pictures in our minds Assonance Vowels that repeat in the middle of words in a verse Dead in the middle of little Italy
Little did we know
that we riddled a middle man
who didn't know diddly. Apostrophe When a writer directly speaks to an inanimate object,
absent person, or concept. Taylor Swift, "Love Story"
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles,
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet"
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you, "Please don't go"
And I said...
Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone.
I'll be waiting; all that's left to do is run.
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess,
It's a love story, baby, just say, "Yes". Repetition Repeating a word or phrase for emphasis. Rebecca Black, "Friday"
It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend Personification Giving human qualities to
an object or animal. Hey Diddle, Diddle,
the cat and the fiddle.
The cow jumped over the moon;
the little dog laughed
to see such sport.
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
- Mother Goose Onomatopoeia A word that represents a sound. Black Eyed Peas, "Boom Boom Pow"
I got that (Boom boom boom)
How the beat bang (Boom boom boom)
I like that boom boom pow
Them chicken jackin' my style
They try to copy my swagger Hyperbole Exaggerations to make a point. Bruno Mars, "Grenade"
I'd catch a grenade for you
Throw my hand on a blade for you
I'd jump in front of a train for you
You know I'd do anything for you
I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the same Stanza A group of lines of poetry separated by a space Rhyme Scheme The repeating pattern formed by rhymes at
the end of lines.
Assigned with alphabet letters. Verse one line of poetry Couplet Two lines of verse that rhyme. All these moments of work I borne
You fixed my files when torn
You taught me much about my job
I’m happy how I opened the door knob
To heed your instruction.
By learning how you lead
Digesting even bitter words you said
I developed my own insight
Of how the papers stack up right
To flow with sweet direction.
