Where has poetry gone

Where has poetry gone?

  • In April 2003 in the “My Turn” section of Newsweek, Bruce Wexler claimed that no one reads poetry anymore. I contend that it permeates our society in a different way, through music.  Our students are listening to "poetry" every day.  By bringing a medium that students are familiar with (pop music & video) into the classroom, greater leaps in learning take place.

  • The obvious potential lies in that pop music songs and lyrics can be used as a springboard to literary interpretation. By analyzing the words in a song, as well as understanding the process and clues through which we develop our analysis, students will be able to have greater confidence in supporting their own interpretations of literature, and specifically poetry.  Associating the music or lyric with the term or concept that is being taught, also provides a mnemonic device that the student may use during recall.

  • Many students seem frustrated and hesitant with poetry interpretation because oftentimes, their own suggestions may differ from classroom text's interpretation. However, students usually have no qualms when asked to offer interpretations of popular musical lyrics. In fact, they seem quite eager to defend a lyrical explanation and will readily point out (without even realizing it) symbols, images, and allusions as ammunition to prove their points.


Pop music poets

Pop Music Poets

How do you know you are in the presence of a poem?

By identifying the conventions of poetry

A simple way to help students identify these elements and conventions is to identify them in pop music lyrics.

Simile

A simile is a figure of speech comparing two unlike things, often introduced with the word "like" or "as".

Circus – Performed by Brittany Spears – Written by Lukasz Gottwald, Claude Kelly, Benjamin Levin

There's only two types of people in the world

The ones that entertain and the ones that observe

Well baby, I'm a put-on-a-show kind of girl

Don't like the backseat, gotta be first

I'm a like the ringleader, I call the shots

(Call the shots)

I'm like a firecracker I make it hot

When I put on a show

I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins

Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break

I'm like a performer, the dance floor is my stage

Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

[Chorus]

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus

When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip just like a circus

Don't stand there watching me, follow me, show me what you can do

Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor just like a circus

There's only two types of guys out there

Ones that can hang with me and ones that are scared

So baby, I hope that you came prepared

I run a tight ship so beware

I'm a like the ringleader, I call the shots

(Call the shots)

I'm like a firecracker, I make it hot

When I put on a show

I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins

Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break

I'm like a performer, the dance floor is my stage

Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

[Chorus]

Let's go

Let me see what you can do

I'm runnin' this like-like-like a circus

Yeah, like a what? Like-like-like a circus

[Chorus repeat x2]

Metaphors

Poetic Images:

Visual metaphors and a connection to Rosenblatt’s theories of reader response.

“Metaphors”

Sylvia Plath


Train hey soul sister

I’m a riddle in nine syllables,

An elephant, a ponderous house,

A melon strolling on two tendrils.

O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!

This loaf’s big with its yeasty rising.

Money’s new minted in this fat purse.

I’m a means, a stage, a cow in calf.

I’ve eaten a bag of green apples,

Boarded the train there’s no getting off.

Poetry jigsaw

Poetry Jigsaw

  • Cooperative learning technique that values the group and the individual

    • Divide students into jigsaw groups (4-5) that are diverse in terms of gender, ethnicity, race, and ability.

    • Appoint one student from each group to be the leader.

    • Divide the lesson in to 4-5 segments (Emily Dickinson poems).

    • Assign each student to study one segment (one Dickinson poem), making certain that students have direct access only to their own segment.

    • Form temporary “expert groups” by having one student from the jigsaw group join others assigned to the same segment.


Poetry jigsaw author approach

Poetry Jigsaw: Author Approach

  • Expert Group

    • Collectively discusses the main points of their segment and discuss elements to share with their original jigsaw groups.

  • Jigsaw Group

    • The initial group of students.

    • Upon their return to the jigsaw group, the individuals who are now experts in one segment (one Dickinson poem) present their content to the group.

180. When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer – Walt Whitman – Leaves of Grass, 1900

WHEN I heard the learn’d astronomer; 

When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; 

When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; 

When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room, 

How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick,

Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, 

In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, 

Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

Poetry generating loops

Poetry Generating Loops

  • Creating a contemporary American poem using conventions

    • Image Weaver

      • Provide concrete images for the poem (at least 2)

    • Language Keeper

      • Supply words and provide word play (5 “exotic”)

    • Metaphor Generator

      • Supply fresh metaphors or similes (at least 2)

    • Music Maker

      • Create a sense of music (rhyme, assonance, alliteration, consonance)

        • (try to take language keeper’s words and generate words that sound musical alongside them—eclectic + electric)
