Transcript of Poetry Form Presentation: Ode

Ode noun an elaborately structured lyrical poem glorifying an individual, commemorating an event, or formally addressing a thing that is not present. During the course of this presentation please note ... - very important key point

- refer to handout

- something to think about An ode essentially praises a person, place or thing.

There are three common
forms of an ode:

I. Pindaric

II. Horatian

III. Irregular. Lets go back in time ... History of an Ode 422-522 BC 2012 65BC Pindaric invented by Greek poet Pindar in roughly 422- 522BC
originated in Ancient Greece
performed with chorus and dancers
very theatrical, ceremonious
used to celebrate athletic victories
ode comes from the Greek word "aeideia", which means to sing or chant Horatian invented by Latin poet Horace in 65 BC
discusses themes of romance and intimacy
less theatrical, read in a less dramatic fashion
poets found it easier to identify with
most popular form
theme of romance & admiration is often associated with Odes Irregular modern interpretation of the classic ode
does not have a specific structural form
varies in length
remains true to traditional theme& tone There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight

To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,

The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;--

Turn wheresoe'er I may,
By night or day,

The things which I have seen I now can see no more. The Pindaric ode consists of three parts: the strophe, antistrophe, and epode. For example... Strophe Antistrophe Epode Horatian odes are written in stanzas consisting of two or four lines. For example... "Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood"
by William Wordsworth Happy the man, whose wish and care

A few paternal acres bound,

Content to breathe his native air,

In his own ground. "Ode on Solitude" by Alexander Pope Irregular odes are those which do not follow the structure of Pindaric or Horatian odes. They are rhyming poems, and do not have a uniform structure for their stanzas. Also... All odes typically follow the rhyme scheme
ABABCDECDE Let's take a look at some examples... "To Autumn" by John Keats Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;

To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,

And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells. Why is this considered an Ode? follows the rhyme scheme "ABABCDECDE"
praises a person place or thing, in this case the season Autumn
contains a strophe, antistrophe and an epode
two to four lines per stanza (Horatian Ode) Epode Antistrophe Strophe Why is this considered an Ode? praises a person place or thing, in this case the color blue
contains a strophe, antistrophe and an epode
two to four lines per stanza (Horatian Ode) Did You Know... Works Cited

"A Short Ode to Blue" by Unknown You give us a word to use
when we are down,
for music with a
sad, jazzy sound.

You are on our proud flag,
a thing of such power,
along with the petals of
a new spring flower.

You are a favorite color
yes, yes it's true.
there's no one like you, that one sweetest blue.
