Hyperbole

Hyperbole

  • Hyperbole is the use of exaggeration for effect.

  • Writers use this technique to create humor or emphasize a point.


Examples

Examples

  • “I’m hungry enough to eat a horse.”

  • My sister wears so much makeup that she looks like a monkey!


Style

Style

  • The author’s style is the unique and individual way that he or she uses language to express ideas.

  • Hyperbole is just one of many language “tools” a writer can use to develop a unique style.


Rhythm

Rhythm

  • Rhythm is a poem’s pattern of stressed (´) and unstressed(˘) syllables.


Rhyme

Rhyme

  • Rhyme is the repetition of a sound at the ends of nearby words – age/rage, for example.

  • Some poems have end rhymes – the rhyming words appear at the ends of lines.

  • The arrangement of rhyming lines varies from poem to poem.


Paraphrasing

Paraphrasing

  • To help you grasp the meaning of a poem, you might paraphrase, or restate in your own words, some or all of it.

  • Though it cannot replace the unique music or phrasing of a poem, a paraphrase can get to the heart of its meaning.

  • He came upon an age/Beset by grief, by rage---

  • But wherefore do not you a mightier way Make war upon this bloody tyrant, Time? And fortify yourself in your decay With means more blessed than my barren rhyme?


Possible answers

Possible Answers

  • King was born in a troubled time.

  • Time is passing away and so are you, so why don't you do something more to insure that you'll live on instead of relying on my poetry to immortalize you?

  • Now stand you on the top of happy hours, And many maiden gardens yet unset With virtuous wish would bear your living flowers, Much liker than your painted counterfeit:


Possible answer

Possible Answer!

  • You're in your prime now, and plenty of women would be happy to give you children, and the children would be much more like you than the imitation of you that my art would produce.

  • So should the lines of life that life repair, Which this, Time's pencil, or my pupil pen, Neither in inward worth nor outward fair, Can make you live yourself in eyes of men.

  • To give away yourself keeps yourself still, And you must live, drawn by your own sweet skill


Possible answers1

Possible Answers!

  • Carrying on your line (having children) will allow your beauty and virtues to "live on" for generations and will do it a lot better than my poetry will.

  • By giving yourself away (to marriage/having children), you actually will keep yourself in the world beyond aging and death, and in that way, you really re-produce your self by means of your own "art."
