What is Poetry?

  • Analyze the title first.
  • What do you predict this poem will be about?
  • Write down your predictions.
  • We will reflect on the title again after we have read the poem.
  • The next step is often omitted, but it is the most important!!!!
p is for paraphrase
P is for PARAPHRASE
  • Paraphrasing is putting something in your own words.
  • After reading the poem, rewrite it in your own words.
  • This may be three sentences or a page, depending on the particular poem.
c is for connotation
Analyze the figures of speech and sound effects of the poem.

These are the poetry vocabulary we will now review.

These elements add to the meaning.

Oxymoron-a figure of speech that combines two opposing or contradictory ideas

  • Larger half
  • Open secret
  • Act naturally
  • Yikes! Paradox and Oxymoron sound the same.
  • They are VERY similar.
  • Paradox is more about a truth as Oxymoron is just opposites put together.

  • Allusion- A brief, usually indirect reference to a person, place, or event--real or fictional.
  • "I violated the Noah rule: predicting rain doesn\'t count; building arks does."(Warren Buffett)

    • Time
    • Tone
    • Speaker

This should always be noted as this will also affect the meaning.

t is for title again
T is for TITLE (again)
  • At this time, you should reconsider the title.
  • Were you right in your predictions?
  • What other meanings might the title have in light of your analysis?
  • Next, the biggie….
t is for theme
T is for THEME
  • As you already know, theme is the general insight into life conveyed by the author through his/her work.
  • It does not make a judgment.

example: “Don’t do drugs” is not a theme.

  • It merely states something that is true to life and the human condition.
how do i find the theme
How do I find theTHEME?
  • Look at the other parts of TPCASTT.
  • What insight are all of these working together to convey?
  • What is the poet trying to say about life?
  • What is the BIG idea?
