POETRY: AN INTRODUCTION
Poetry Essay
50 minutes to complete the question
Discuss FIVE poems
Your essay MUST deal with
WHAT THE POET SAYS (themes/ideas)
HOW THE POET SAYS IT (techniques).
Quotation must be used to back up what you're saying- must demonstrate technique discussed



The use of a word whose sound suggests its
meaning
Onomatopoeia
A poem is a series of word-pictures. We see
them with our minds instead of with our
eyes. We call these pictures images.
IMAGERY
This is the tone of voice of the poet or the speaker in the poem

Think about how a person in real life might get across
their tone?
TONE

To determine the author’s major idea or “message”

It might help to ask yourself- What is the poem really about?
THEME
METAPHOR AND SIMILE
Both are used to compare unlike objects.

Simile uses “like” or “as”:
Like cornflakes need milk,
Like fashion needs silk,
I need your love.

Metaphor compares without using “like” or “as”:
The sun is an orange dinghy
sailing across the sea
A figure of speech in which objects and animals have human qualities.
PERSONIFICATION
Repetition of 2 or more vowel sounds within a line.
Assonance
The repetition of one or more initial sounds, usually consonants, in words within a line.
ALLITERATION
The measured flow of words in the poem i.e. a strong beat.
Rhythm
O why have they left the road down there?
Why are they suddenly wheeling, wheeling?
Perhaps a change in the orders, dear,
Why are you kneeling?
I’d sooner be
Slugged and mugged…then hugged…
And clobbered with a slobbering
Kiss by my Auntie Jean

The beaufort beat, soft salted sheets,
Blows breath or flares in tatters
The whoop of a boy, the thud of a hoof,
The rattle of rain on a galvanised roof
The tree is hanging down her head because the sun is
staring at her. White people always stare. They do not
know it is not polite
Broad sun-stoned beaches.
White heat.
A green river.
