  1. Intro to Poetry

  2. Poetry • Poetry usually has rhyme and rhythm • Rhyme: the repetition of a sound (example: cat and hat) • Rhythm: the rise and fall of our voices as we read poetry

  3. Poetry • Poets use words to create images in the reader’s mind… this is known as Imagery • They also use words to convey the tone, or their attitude

  4. Poetry • Poets also use a figurative language to help readers make connections… things like metaphors, similes, hyperboles, personification, and idioms

  5. Poetry • Poems often have stanzas, or groups of text • `Twasbrillig, and the slithytoves  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:All mimsy were the borogoves,  And the momerathsoutgrabe "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!  The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun  The frumiousBandersnatch!" He took his vorpal sword in hand:  Long time the manxome foe he sought --So rested he by the Tumtum tree,  And stood awhile in thought.

  6. Poetry • Poetry is either written in meter or free verse • Free verse: does not have a regular patter or rhythm or rhyme; sounds like ordinary writing • Meter: a regular pattern of rhythm and rhyme • Example: Roses are red, Violets are blue, Smathers loves Ms. Holicky, and Miller does, too

  7. Poetry • Other poetic devices to know: • Alliteration: the repetition of consonant sounds in words that are close together, like in tongue twisters (example: Sally sold sea shells by the sea shore) • Onomatopoeia: when a word sounds like what it means (example: crash, boom)
