Transcript of Sample Literary Terms Prezi

We don't know 'em Literary Terms Why, Mrs. Sawyer, why? Well, children, literary terms are very important to
know when you're thinking about literature. Authors
use them to:
*Create mood and tone
*Define characters and their traits
*Elevate the language of their work
*And more!
Let's look at some you don't know! Anaphora Def: repeated words or phrases, especially at the beginning of phrases, for emphasis. Poetry Example: Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking--Walt Whitman

Out of the cradle endlessly rocking,
Out of the mocking-bird's throat, the musical shuttle,
Out of the Ninth-month midnight . . .

Prose Example:
"We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the
landing grounds; we shall fight in the fields and in
the streets; we shall never surrender."--Winston Churchill Anaphora uses:
*intensify emotion
*create rhythm
*make ideas memorable
*ties ideas together How to remember anaphora: Dr. Seuss!
