Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Poetry Unit!
Yay! Let's take some notes!
Onomatopoeia
a word that imitates the sound it is describing
Even Batman uses onomatopoeia
Simile
A simile is a comparison of two things, almost always using the words "like" or "as".
Alliteration
the repetition of the same consonant sound at the beginning of a group of consecutive or closely connected words.
Think Tongue Twisters!
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Betty botter bought some butter.
Metaphor
a figure of speech comparing two unlike objects without using "like" or "as"; a creative comparison.
Variety
is
the spice of life!
Personification
giving an animal, idea, or inanimate object human or life-like characteristics.
Examples of Personification:

The flowers begged for water.
The wind whispered softly in the night.
Lightning danced across the sky.
The sun peeked out behind the clouds.
"I'm gonna marry the night!"
Assonance
repetition of the sound of a vowel.

Hyperbole
An exaggeration!!
In Poetry:
Life the hound
Equivocal
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 ----> ' )
(<----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.
Poetry
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.

Examples:
Ode
Elegy
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.
