POETRY IS.....

TAKE 5 MINUTES TO WRITE ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS TOWARDS POETRY

-WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

POEM:

TEXTS WITH CHARGED, COMPRESSED LANGUAGE

CONVEY AN EXPERIENCE, AN EMOTION, OR SIMPLY AN AESTHETICALLY PLEASING ARRANGEMENT OF WORDS


The Human Brain

  • Divided into 2 parts

  • Each half has its own function

Right Brain:

Creativity

Emotions

Left Brain:

Logic

Reality


To clarify . . .

When you are looking at big puffy clouds . . .

Your right brain tells you, “Hey! That one looks like a bunny.”

While your left brain tells you . . .



So which half do you use when studying poetry
So, which half do you use when studying poetry?

Here are a few hints:

  • Poetry requires creativity

  • Poetry requires emotion

  • Poetry requires an artistic quality

  • Poetry requires logic

Survey says . . .



For the left brain
For the Left Brain:

Recognizing certain devices used within a poem will give the left brain something to concentrate on.

We’ll start with the sound devices:


My Beard

by Shel Silverstein

My beard grows to my toes,

I never wears no clothes,

I wraps my hair

Around my bare,

And down the road I goes.

RHYME

The repetition of sounds

Example: hat, cat, brat, fat, mat, sat

Here is another example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGrcdq2viZg


RHYTHM

The beat

When reading a poem out loud, you may notice a sort of “sing-song” quality to it, just like in nursery rhymes. This is accomplished by the use of rhythm. Rhythm is broken into seven types.

  • Iambic

  • Anapestic

  • Trochaic

  • Dactylic

  • Monosyllabic

  • Spondaic

  • Accentual

Less

Common

Most

Used


These identify patterns of stressed and unstressed syllables in a line of poetry.

That means one syllable is pronounced stronger, and one syllable is softer.

iambic:

unstressed

anapestic:

stressed

trochaic:

dactylic:

Picture Puzzle Piece by THE Shel Silverstein

One picture puzzle pieceLyin' on the sidewalk,One picture puzzle pieceSoakin' in the rain.It might be a button of blueOn the coat of the womanWho lived in a shoe.It might be a magical bean,Or a fold in the redVelvet robe of a queen.It might be the one little biteOf the apple her stepmotherGave to Snow White.


It might be the veil of a bride THE Or a bottle with some evil genie inside.It might be a small tuft of hairOn the big bouncy bellyOf Bobo the Bear.It might be a bit of the cloakOf the Witch of the WestAs she melted to smoke.It might be a shadowy traceOf a tear that runs down an angel's face.Nothing has more possibilitiesThan one old wet picture puzzle piece.

HARLEM: A DREAM DEFERRED OF A PERSON, PLACE, THING, OR AN EXPERIENCE -LANGSTON HUGHES

WHAT HAPPENS TO A DREAM DEFERRED?

DOES IT DRY UP

LIKE A RAISIN IN THE SUN

OR FESTER LIKE A SORE-

AND THEN RUN?

DOES IT STINK LIKE ROTTEN MEAT?

OR CRUST AND SUGAR OVER-

LIKE A SYRUPY SWEET?

MAYBE IT JUST SAGS

LIKE A HEAVY LOAD.

OR DOES IT EXPLODE?
