Warm UP

If you were asked on a test to analyze the “sound devices” of a poem, what do you think you are being asked to do? In a brief paragraph, explain your interpretation of literary “sound devices.”


Today’s Learning Goal

I will be able to analyze the sound devices used in the poems found in poetry collection #7 byfilling out the sound device chart provided. I will know I’ve met my goal when I can explain a poem’s use of sound devices in complete sentences.


NOTES: Poetic Sound Devices

  • Alliteration

  • Assonance

  • Consonance

  • Onomatopoeia


What’s the Difference between a CONSONANT and a VOWEL?

  • Vowels = a, e, i, o, u

  • Consonants = every other letter in the alphabet


Poetic Sound Devices

  • Sound devices can:

    • Add to the mood of a poem

    • Imitate the sound of events

    • Reflect a poem’s meaning


Alliteration

  • The repetition of consonant sounds at the beginnings of nearby words:

    • The sound of the singing sisters

    • The babbling brook

    • Winter’s worst weather


Assonance

  • The repetition of vowel sounds in nearby stressed syllables.

  • Unlike rhyming syllables, assonant syllables can end in different consonants.

    • She was in a deep and dreamless

      sleep.

    • Row, row, row, your, boat.


Consonance

  • The repetition of consonant sounds at the ends of nearby stressed syllables with different vowel sounds:

    • The heat of the lighting burnt my skin.

    • Do not go gentle into that good night.

    • Dragging the lazy loafer along the line.


Onomatopoeia

  • The use of words to imitate actual sounds

    • BUZZ, TAP, SPLASH, ZOOM, BANG, POP
