  1. Cinderella Original Publication: 1952 in Seventeen By: Sylvia Plath Presented by: BreannSperaneo and ThrushnaMekala

  2. This poem should be added to the Glencoe Course 5 Literature book because it contains many literary elements for high school students to identify such as sound devices, figurative language, and many others. • Students can also relate this to the classic fairy tale.

  3. Figurative Language: Allusion • Entire poem alludes to the classic tale “Cinderella” Until near twelve the strange girl all at once Guilt-stricken halts, pales, clings to the prince She hears the caustic ticking of the clock.

  4. Sound Device: Assonance • Assonance is shown through repeated “i” sounds. Begin on tilted violins to span Where guests slide gliding into light like wine;

  5. Atmosphere • The atmosphere gives off a sophisticated and romantic vibe. The prince leans to the girl in scarlet heels, Rose candles flicker on the lilac wall

  6. Sound Device:Consonance • Consonance is demonstrated in this line by repetition of the “r” sound. Her green eyes slant, hair flaring in a fan • Repeated “l” sounds demonstrate consonance. Guilt-stricken halts, pales, clings to the prince

  7. Imagery • A girl’s eyes and hair are described in detail through imagery. Her green eyes slant, hair flaring in a fan • The movements of dancing couples are revealed through imagery. And glided couples all in whirling trance

  8. Rhyme Scheme • Written mostly in ABAB • Usually ten syllables per line, most stanzas add up to forty syllables • Written in iambic pentameter The prince leans to the girl in scarlet heels, A Her green eyes slant, hair flaring in a fan B Of silver as the rondo slows; now reels A Begin on tilted violins to span B 10 10 10 10

  9. Rhythm • Quatrains, except for last stanza which is a couplet The whole revolving tall glass palace hall Where guests slide gliding into light like wine; Rose candles flicker on the lilac wall Reflecting in a million flagons’ shine, As amid the hectic music and cocktail talk She hears the caustic ticking of the clock

  10. Figurative Language: Simile • Movements of the guests are compared to wine through a simile Where guests slide gliding into light like wine;

  11. Summary • The poem “Cinderella” by Sylvia Plath should be added to the Glencoe Literature book because it includes: Allusion Imagery Assonance Rhyme Scheme Atmosphere Rhythm Consonance Simile
