Transcript of Literary Devices: Lesson Plan

Literary devices are elements used within prose or poetry that create a specific effect. Is This New Information? What is a Literary Device? Literary Devices Think of them as flavoring or ingredients in food.
Without them everything would be bland and boring!
Literary devices are important because they help language become more infinite and exciting! My Definition: Food for thought... = Let's 1. Imagery My Definition: Language that speaks to your senses. Words that create a picture in your mind--one that includes specific images, scents, and sounds.

A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way William Wordsworth Example in "Daffodils" Cool Cultural Connections (alliteration ;) Louis Armstrong , "What a Wonderful World" "I see trees of green, red roses too I see em bloom for me and you And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue, clouds of white Bright blessed days, dark sacred nights And I think to myself what a wonderful world." 2. Alliteration My Definition; Repetition of consonant sounds in a sequence of words. Edgar Allan Poe, "The Raven" Cultural Connection: Tao Cruz, "Break Your Heart" "Like a big bad wolf, I'm born to be bad, and I'm bad to the bone" 3. Metaphor My Definition: A direct comparison of two dissimilar objects (note: does not use the words "like" or "as" like a simile) Shakespeare's "Sonnet 18" "Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?"

"So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.”
**Love in this metaphor takes on the characteristics of the summer, a life-giving force.** Maroon 5, "My Heart's a Stereo" **Implying that the speaker's heart/ love is expressive and complicated. ** 4. Personification My Definition: Attributing human characteristics or qualities to inanimate objects or things that are nonhuman. Mother Goose, "The Cat and The Fiddle" "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."
Linkin Park, "Shadow of the Day" "The shadow of the day will embrace the world in grey" 5. End Rhyme My Definition: Rhyme which occurs on the terminal syllables of poetic verse. Shakespeare, "Romeo and Juliet" ~Romeo
Carly Rae Jepsen, "Call Me Maybe" "I threw a wish in a well
Don't ask me, I'll never tell" Literary Connection: Literary Connection: Literary Connection: Cultural Connection: Literary Connection: Cultural Connection: Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow. Literary Connection: Cultural Connection: Exit Ticket 2nd Stanza of Edgar Allan Poe's "Annabel Lee" "I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me. "
