Transcript of Be Glad Your Nose Is On Your Face

Be Glad Your Nose Is On Your Face Analysis cont. I chose Jessie J's Who You Are because it goes with the poem's meaning of not changing yourself to please others. Do not dread your flaws, and never change who you are. Throughout the poem you can find several metaphors.
ex: Imagine if your precious nose were sandwiched in between your toes, that clearly would not be a treat, for you'd be forced to smell your feet.
The metaphor being your nose in different places and explaining the bad of those places.

Prelutsky also utilizes the following sound devices throughout the poem: Works Cited Prelutsky, Jack. "Be Glad Your Nose Is on Your Face." 100 Best Poems. Best Poems Encyclopedia, 08 Sept. 1940. Web. 22 Apr. 2013. Analysis Analysis cont. Alliteration- through thick and thin (line 17)

ex: Be glad your nose is on your face,
not pasted on some other place,
for if it were where it is not,
you might dislike your nose a lot. By: Jack Prelutsky Beth, Tori. "Tori Beth Poetry." : Be Glad Your Nose Is on Your Face by Jack Prelutsky. Blog Spot, 16 Dec. 2010. Web. 22 Apr. 2013. Although the poem is literally about your nose being on your face, I think Jack Prelutsky's meaning is to be thankful for what we were, and are, given. We should be very grateful that we even have a nose and a sense of smell. We should also be glad that our nose was not put on our body anywhere else but on our face-as stated in the poem. Theme Be very grateful for what you have and don't dread flaws or imperfections. Be thankful that your body was made the way it is and do not try to change your flaws for something could go wrong.
