Transcript of Nikki Giovanni
-Things That Go Together
-Summer Love Poem
-Love Is What type of figurative language does the poet use regularly? Nikki uses lots of personification, repetition, and alliteration in almost all of her poems. Why do you think that they chose these forms of figurative language in their writing? I think these types of figurative language help express her deep, soulful thoughts and they assist in getting her vision across to her readers. What seems to be their favorite form of poetry? Most of Nikki’s poems are free verse. They express her love towards different things very descriptively, in her own style. What are some common themes to poet writes about? Nikki Giovanni enjoys descriptively writing about making love to her many boyfriends; she never actually got married. She is also very inspired by her hometown, Knoxville, Tennessee, and all the beautiful sights it has to offer. Other common themes in her pieces include her childhood life and family.
