Objectives

  • Students will become knowledgeable poetic devices.

  • Students will apply their knowledge of poetic devices to identify them in a song.

  • Students will analyze a song to make connections to the theme facing injustice.


Poetic Devices

  • A poetic device is something a poet uses to go beyond the literal meaning of words in order to create meaning.

  • Poets use devices that focus on the sounds words make in order to create emotion and mood.


Alliteration

  • the repetition of the same letter or sound at the beginning words in a sentence or phrase.

  • Example:

    • She sells seashells by the seashore.


Assonance

  • The repetition of the same vowel sound.

  • Example:

    • The greedy flea looks with glee,

      At the furry doggie beneath the cedar tree.


Consonance

  • The repetition of the same consonant sound.

  • Example:

    • In my sleep, I pranced through the purple pansies, while praising the leadership of the pixies.


End Rhyme

  • Rhyme occurs at the end of each line of verse.

  • Example:

    • I hope these rhymes don’t cause you pain,

      But get absorbed into your brain.


Internal Rhyme

  • Rhyme that occurs inside a line of verse.

  • Example:

    • He thought it unfair he was stuck in a chair,

      While everyone else had fun out in the sun.


Repetition

  • When the author repeats a word or phrase for a specific purpose or thematic emphasis.

  • Example:

    • “One kiss, my bonny sweetheart, I'm after a prize to-night, But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light; Yet, if they press me sharply, and harry me through the day,

      Then look for me by moonlight, Watch for me by moonlight,

      I'll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way."

      ~ “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes


Music

  • Dave Matthews Band

    Song: “Cry Freedom”

    Album: Crash

    Release Date: 1996


“Cry Freedom”

  • What are your initial interpretations about this song?

  • What messages do you think DMB is sending about the theme of facing injustice?


“Cry Freedom”

  • Some believe Dave Matthews wrote this song in response to the end of Apartheid in South Africa, his country of origin.

  • Let’s learn more about what Apartheid was to determine if this is a logical conclusion.
