  7. Allusion • An allusion is a reference to a statement, a person, a place or an event from literature, history, religion, mythology, politics, sports or science.

  8. Allusion example from Romeo and Juliet • O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!It seems she hangs upon the cheek of nightLike a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear;Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!Read more at Buzzle:

  9. Allusion example from Hamlet • Look here, upon this picture, and on this,The counterfeit presentment of two brothers.See, what a grace was seated on this brow;Hyperion's curls; the front of Jove himself;An eye like Mars, to threaten and command;A station like the herald MercuryNew-lighted on a heaven-kissing hill;Read more at Buzzle:

  10. Allusion from Divine Comedy • I doubt if Phaethon feared more - that timehe dropped the sun-reins of his father's chariotand burned the streak of sky we see today -or if poor Icarus did - feeling his sidesunfeathering as the wax began to melt,his father shouting: "wrong, your course is wrong."Read more at Buzzle:

  11. Taylor Swift • See if you can pick out the literary element in this Taylor Swift song “Love Story.”

  12. Concrete poems • A concrete poem is a poem that forms a picture of the topic or follows the contours of a shape that is suggested by the topic. These can be used effectively with reports in science or social studies. For example, my students have used them in catastrophe reports. Their poems were about a tornado, a hurricane, a flood, and an earthquake.
