  • Alliteration


Assonance

Assonance

  • The repetition of vowel sounds within words

  • Assonance stresses certain words and moods.

    And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side

    Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride.

    --Edgar Allan Poe, "Annabel Lee"


Exercise

Exercise:

  • Find the examples of assonance in the following selections…

    Slow things are beautiful:

    The closing of the day,

    The pause of the wave

    That curves downward to spray.

    --Elizabeth Coatsworth, "Swift Things are Beautiful"


Consonance

Consonance

  • The close repetition of consonant sounds at the ends of words or syllables

    Example:

    Blank and think


Alliteration

Now it is your turn to be a poet

Now it is your turn to be a poet…

Create your own poem using your top 10 most beautiful words.

The poem does not have to rhyme but should use some of the devices we have been working with.

The poem does not need to make sense, but instead should play with the sounds of words.

Make your writing look like a poem by using short lines, breaking for a new line when they want to add emphasis rather than when they come to the margin


Here is a poem of my own creation with my 10 most beautiful words

Here is a poem of my own creation with my 10 most beautiful words…

A grace of golden gazelles

Gathered round the gazebo

Nibbling on lotus flowers and tangerines

Relishing refreshing root beer on rye

Laser light slashes

The gazelles gabbling gaiety

A kaleidoscope of flying fur and

Fleeing forms!
