Think Tongue Twisters!
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Betty botter bought some butter.
a figure of speech comparing two unlike objects without using "like" or "as"; a creative comparison.
the spice of life!
giving an animal, idea, or inanimate object human or life-like characteristics.
Examples of Personification:

The wind whispered softly in the night.

In Poetry:
Life the hound
Comes at a bound
Either to rend me
Or to befriend me.
I cannot tell
The hound's intent
Till he has sprung
At my bare hand
With teeth or tongue.
Meanwhile I stand
And wait the event.
- Robert Francis
"The Hound"
Easily confused with Apostrophe.
(Not this ----> ' )
Speaking to an inanimate object or imaginary person.
Personification of alarm clock
Figurative Language
"any language not interpreted literally"

Goes beyond the literal to show a new perspective.
Traditional poetry is language arranged in lines, with a regular rhythm and often a definite rhyme scheme.

Nontraditional poetry does away with regular rhyme and rhythm, although it is usually set up in lines.

Types of Poetry:
Poetry that expresses a speaker’s personal thoughts or feelings.

Sonnet (a 14 line lyric poem)
Words such as love or fright

Lyric Poetry
Free Verse

Poetry that has no fixed meter
or pattern and that depends
on natural speech rhythms.

Blank Verse

Verse written in unrhymed,
iambic pentameter, where each line usually contains ten syllables and every other syllable is stressed.
