Line • Basic unit of poetry Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul And sings the tune without the words And never stops at all -Emily Dickinson
Stanza • Stanzas are like paragraphs in writing. They are groups of lines, usually 4 lines. “Hope” is the thing with feathers - That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words - And never stops - at all - And sweetest in the Gale is heard And sore must be the storm That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm I’ve heard it in the chillest land And on the strangest Sea Yet never in Extremity, It asked a crumb of me. -Emily Dickinson
Phrasing • Phrasing is how statements can be broken down in a poem. I’ve heard it in the chillestland And on the strangest Sea Yet never in Extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
Words • Words are what make up a poem. There are many ways to use words; for rhyme, for rhythm, to make sentences longer. Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul And sings the tune without the words And never stops at all And sweetest in the Gale is heard And sore must be the storm That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm I’ve heard it in the chillestland And on the strangest Sea Yet never in Extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
Rhyme/Rhyme Sceme • Rhyme in poetry is when the last words of a line sound alike to another last word in the same stanza. Rhyme scheme is the rhyming pattern. And sweetest in the Gale is heard And sore must be the storm That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm Rhyme scheme: a,b,a,b
Alliteration • Alliteration is the repetition of a sound in a poem. "Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the voxpopuli, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified…”-V for Vendetta
Onomatopoeia • A word used to represent a sound of a noise or action. • Bang! • Hiss • Squish
Rhythm Arrangement of words into a more or less regular sequence of stressed and unstressed or long and short syllables. “…I grant I never saw a goddess go,- My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground: And yet, I think my love as rare As any she belied in false compare.” -Shakespeare
Hyperbole • An exaggeration used to make a point. “This has got to be the thirty-billionth time I’ve told you not to do that!”
Personification • Giving non-human things human characteristics. My computer throws a fit every time I try to use it.
Simile • A comparison using “like” or “as”. As blind as a bat.
Metaphor • A comparison without using “like” or “as”. Life is a box of chocolates.
