Presentation Transcript

  1. Metaphor • A metaphor is a comparison without using “like” or “as.” • For example: • He is a pig. (metaphor) • He eats like a pig (simile) He’s a bull in a china closet. Bull= china closet. A bull is big, strong and fierce and a china closet contains delicate plates and cups. This is describing a clumsy or destructive person who would destroy things around him or her; probably through accident.

  2. Metaphor • Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty • Island =____________ • What are the qualities of an island? • Why is this compared to______? 2. From the quicksand of racial injustice Quicksand=________________ • What are the qualities of quicksand? • Why is this compared to____________.

  3. Simile 3. Justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a might stream Water=__________ Might stream=____________ • What are the qualities of water? • Why is water compared to __________? • What are the qualities of a mighty stream? • Why is this compared to______________?

  4. Forms of imagery (with examples) Visual imagery is perhaps the most frequently used form. The crimson liquid spilled from the neck of the white dove, staining and matting its pure, white feathers. Auditory imagery represents a sound. The bells chimed 2 o'clock and Daniel got ready for school. Onomatopoeia: a word that makes a sound. Kinesthetic imagery represents movement as in Wordsworth's poem Daffodils: "tossing their heads in sprightly dance" Olfactory imagery represents a smell. Gio's socks, still soaked with sweat from Tuesday's P.E. class, filled the classroom with an aroma akin to that of salty, week-old, rotting fish. Gustatory imagery represents a taste. The sweet marinara sauce makes up for the bland sea-shell pasta that Jeffrey served. Tumbling through the ocean water after being overtaken by the monstrous wave, Mark unintentionally took a gulp of the briny, bitter mass, causing him to cough and gag. Tactile imagery represents touch. Jane dug her feet into the wet sand, burying her toes inside the beach as cold waves lapped at her ankles. The clay oozed between Jeremy's fingers as he let out a squeal of pure glee

  5. Imagery Imagery—the words or phrases a writer uses to create a certain picture in the reader’s mind. Imagery is usually based on sensory details (touch, taste, vision, hearing, smell). · “I tasted the sour on my tongue and felt it in the back of my mouth. Then before I reached the door, the sting was burning down my legs and into my Sunday socks.” · “Her skin was a rich black that would have peeled like a plum if snagged.” · “The sweet scent of vanilla had met us as she opened the door.” · “ . . . but in a minute she was back in the room with a long, ropy peachswitch, the juice smelling bitter at having been torn loose.”

  6. Heavy with fatigue • Invigorating autumn • Sweltering summer • Lips dripping with the words… (also has some great “S” sounds repeated. This is called consonance. We’ll discuss this later in the quarter) • Jangling discords • Curvaceous slopes

  7. Religious Language • Why would King use religious language? • Find 4 examples from the text. Explain the effect the word or phrase has (why it was used).
