AP English Literature Poetry Terms 1-7
Created by: Julia Yoo, Meagan Tran, Sneha Raola

Alliteration
A device of sound by repeating identical or similar consonant sounds (s, t, n, etc.).
Allusion
A reference in a literary piece to an event, work, or individual without explicit mention.
Antithesis
Rhetorical contrast of ideas by means of parallel arrangements of words, clauses, or sentences.
Viva La Vida
Coldplay
"For some reason I can't explain
I know
Saint Peter
won't call my name"
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
Example
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.”

Quote from Charles Dickens
A Tale of Two Cities
If I Lose Myself
OneRepublic
"I
s
tared
up at the
s
un

Thought of all of the
p
eople
,
p
laces
and things I’ve loved.
I
s
tared
up just to
s
ee
With all of the faces, you were the one next to me.

You can feel the light start to tremble,
W
ashing

w

you

w
out to sea.
You can see your life out of the
w
indow
tonight."

Apostrophe
A figure of speech in which someone (usually, but not always present), some abstract quality, or a nonexistent personage is directly addressed as though present.
Assonance
Like alliteration, but with repeating similar vowel sounds.
I Will Follow You Into The Dark
Death Cab for Cutie
“Love of
mine
, some day you will
die
But I'll be close
behind
I'll follow you into the dark
No
blinding light
or tunnels to gates of
white
Just our hands clasped so
tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark

If Heaven and Hell
decide
That they both are
satisfied
Illuminate the "No"'s on their vacancy
signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark”
Example
Ballad Meter
A four-line stanza rhymed abcd with four feet in lines one and three and three feet in lines two and four.
Examples
Betty Botter bought some butter, but, she said, the butter’s bitter; if I put it in my batter it will make my batter bitter, but a bit of better butter will make my batter better.

Example from Nursery Rhymes: Mother Goose
Example
Blank Verse
un-rhymed iambic pentameter
Example
By this still hearth, among these barren crags
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race ,
That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me.

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson "Ulysses"
Game!
Example
"If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song"

Lyrics from "If I Die Young" that allude to the Lady of Shalott

"Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again"

~Simon and Garfunkel "The Sound of Silence"
"I try to sleep,

to turn away,

Turning pages

yet the story stays"

~Zin Lim "Stagnant"
Example
"Those images that yet
Fresh images beget,
That dolphin-torn, that gong-tormented sea."

~W.B. Yeats, "Byzantium"
Sally sells seashells by the seashore.
Counting Stars
One Republic
Old
, but I'm not that
old
Young
, but I'm not that
bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told

I feel something so
right
Doing the
wrong
thing
I feel something so

Doing the
right

thing
Part of Me
Katy Perry
That
you’re
never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me
That
you’re
never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw
your
sticks and
your
stones, throw
your
bombs and
your
blows
But
you’re
not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That
you’re
never gonna ever take away from me, no
Lose Yourself
Eminem
His PALMS are SWEATy, KNEES weak, ARMS are HEAVy
There's VOmit ON his SWEATer alREADy, mom's spaGHETTi
He's NERVous, but ON the SURFace he LOOKS calm and READy
To DROP BOMBS, but HE keeps ON forGETtin
What HE wrote DOWN, the WHOLE crowd GOES so LOUD
He OPens his MOUTH, BUT the WORDS won't come OUT
He's CHOKin, how EVeryBODy's JOKin NOW
The CLOCK'S run OUT, TIME'S up OVer, BLOah!
(alliteration)
(allusion)
(apostrophe)
(assonance)
(blank verse)
(antithesis)
Anna Sun
Walk the Moon
Screen falling off the
door

door
hanging off the hinges
My feet are still
sore
my back is on the fringes
We
tore
up the walls we slept on couches
We lifted this house we lifted this house
(assonance)
The Girl
City and Colour
I wish I could do better by you,
'cause that's what you deserve
You sacrifice so much of your life
In order for this to work.

While I'm off chasing my own dreams
Sailing around the world
Please know that I'm yours to keep
My beautiful girl
(apostrophe)
