O.c. A18
KIND OF POETRY: CONTENT-BASED DISTINCTION

1. Epic…
2. Dramatic…
3. Satirical…
4. Lyric…

The first three ones tell a story in verse and may express a moral commentary.
The last one is generally used to express the individual’s thoughts and feelings; musical quality is their main characteristic.

OC A18
KIND OF POETRY: FORM-BASED DISTINCTION

These are all fixed forms:

Elegy
: natural setting, poetic lamentation or speculation on death…

Ballad
: written to be sung and danced to, used to express basic human emotions-> love, hate, fear, wonder at physical and supernatural worlds…

Sonnet
: the most formal among lyric poems, capable of great variety and intensity…

Ode
: classical form, long and complex, it is anyway mainly determined by the theme, usually the celebration of an abstract concept…

Oc A18
A poem conveys its meaning through words arranges in images which have not only a
DENOTATIVE
meaning, the dictionary definition, but also a
CONNOTATIVE
meaning, created by the
associations evoked
in the poet’s and then in the reader’s minds.
SOUND
1. Assonance:
repetition of the same vowel sound within a line or poem…
2. Alliteration
:
repetition of the same initial consonant sound in consecutive words…
3. Repetition and refrain
:
repetition of the same series of words (repetition) or with little variation (refrain)…
4. Onomatopeia:
a word that sounds its same meaning, the word illustrates its meaning…

5. The scale of sounds:

vowels and consonants. Most of all, the sound and rhythm of a poem will be affected by consonants, which convey the very special meaning to the poem. From soft to hard consonants, you will appreciate the effects on the whole poem, so to say: from the softer liquid and nasal consonants (l, r, m, n) to the harder plosive ones (b/p, d/t, g/k) you will hear thousands of different nuances in sound and, consequently, in meaning…

6. Rhyme:
the last word of two or more lines has the same ending sound; it can also be inside the line and at the end of the line: in this case, it is called internal rhyme. Rhymes are identified through letters of the latin alphabet: the pattern they create is the rhyme scheme…

RHYTHM AND STRESS
It is linked to the subject matter and emotional content of the poem: it helps give form to its meaning…

End-stopped lines
:
a line ends with a grammatical pause…
Run-on-line/enjambement: a line is grammatically completed with the following line…

Words:
stressed->content words/grammatical words->unstressed…
Metre: a regular distribution within a line of stressed and unstressed syllables; Feet: the basis of the metre, the unit of stressed and unstressed groups of syllables; 1) if it is unstressed/stressed then it is called an
IAMB,
2) if it is stressed/unstressed it is called
a TROCHEE


So, we can have two main
METRICAL PATTERNS
1) IAMBIC METRE
, which is also the most common in English poetry
2) TROCHAIC METRE


Blank Verse
: often iambic pentameter with unrhymed lines; often found in Elizabethan period…

Oc A20/21 B19//20
Poetry is
SOUND and RHYTHM
IMAGERY
Oc. A54
These associations are called are expressed through means of
figurative

language
, also called
IMAGERY
, and this language is mainly created through comparisons...
Several ways to make comparison are possibile, they are called figures of speech:

ALLEGORY:
characters or events in a literary, visual, or musical art form represent or symbolize ideas and concepts…

OXYMORON
: the combination of two usually contradictory things or qualities...

HYPERBOLE
: an exaggeration of a quality…

LITOTES:
rhetorical understatement in which the negative of the opposite meaning is used…
...IMAGERY:

FIGURES OF SPEECH

SIMILE:
explicit comparison, made explicit through linguistic devices such as “like” and “as”…

METAPHOR:
similar to simile, it is a non explicit comparison; for this reason it is more immediate and its impact is stronger than the simile’s. TENOR/GROUND/VEHICLE…

PERSONIFICATION:
attribution of human characteristic to abstract things or inanimate objects…

SYMBOL
: thing, persone, place or action has a literal meaning but also stands for a vice or virtu, a qulity, an attitude, a belief, a value and so on.
TIGER TIGER by William Blake
