Transcript of Poetry Analysis (TPFASTT)

What is poetry analysis?

It is the process of analyzing a poem for different elements, in order to find the theme.
When do you do it?

You use poetry analysis when you want to find the purpose of a poem.
T- title

Ask yourself what your first thoughts about the title suggest and what you believe the poem is going to be about.

F- figurative language
Use different figurative language (Connotation, Imagery, Irony, Metaphor, Synecdoche, Personification, Simile, and any others you find) to find the meaning beyond the literal meaning.
Why do you do it?
You use poetry analysis to understand and find the theme of what the poem is conveying.
T- title revisited
Now that you have analyzed the poem, look back at what you originally said the meaning was and did it change? Are you able to apply this title to the poem? Do you think there is a better title? Why?
How do you do it?

To analyze a poem you use TPFASTT.
TPFASTT is the process you follow:
A- attitude
Analyze the speaker’s tone, and think about what is his attitude toward his topic and why did the poet write this poem? Provide proof from the poem.

P- paraphrase
Translate the text into your own words to find its literal meaning.
Find the transitions in the poem that include shifts in subject, attitude, mood, point of view, speaker, rhythm, or motif. Think about how these affect the poem.
S- shift
T- theme
First identify the subject of the poem, then determine what the poet thinks about the subject. Think about the question, how does the poem’s meaning relate to life?
