Transcript of AN INTRODUCTION TO POETRY

AN INTRODUCTION TO POETRY
What is great poetry? Or shall we say,
what
makes
great poetry?
Is it the poem's
imagery
,
sound
,
depth of meaning
,
form
,

or
something else entirely
?
Sound:

"The rhythmic creation of beauty."
- Edgar Allen Poe
To become comfortable with the
sound
of poetry, you must first understand terms such as:
rhyme, alliteration, assonance, consonance,
and
onomatopoeia.
FORM
of Poetry
How do we rate the level of
perfection
in regards to
poetic form
?

First we must understand terms such as
free verse, meter, stanza, and repetition.
THE EASIEST OF POETIC SOUNDS....
Now we must
apply
all of our knowledge we've gained from previous areas -
Imagery, Sound, and Form
- and use them to develop an understanding for the
"message"
within each poem.
Haiku's
are an easy starting point for using imagery.
Haiku make-up consists of
3 lines:

5 syllables -
I wake, reluctant;
7 syllables -
too cold to get out of bed
5 syllables -
I have to pee.

Simply focus on capturing a
single image
. Go ahead, try it out for a while....


An
ultimate
guideline:
Young writers may tend to fall back on the use of
cliches
when the writing gets tough.
Thus,
be original
.
Create a
strikingly vivid
image in the mind of your readers.
Imagery:

"the picture the poet creates"

To fully understand and discuss
imagery
, you must first understand literary terms like the following:
simile
,
metaphor
,
hyperbole
,
and

personification
.
"FOUND
POETRY"
"Mr. Bonds is a major-league baseball player", Ruby said.
Depth of Meaning
:
“A poem is a close relative
of the riddle – a curiosity that invites us to unravel its mystery.” - Leland Ryken
