1 how to read literature

1. How to read literature

  • Figurative language

  • The use of words that go beyond their ordinary meaning. It requires you to use your imagination to figure out the author's meaning.


Structure

Literary devices:

Structure

  • What kind of figurative language is the poem using—for example,

  • simile, metonymy, hyperbole, apostrophe, or conceit? What about symbolism or literary

  • allusions?

  • Other aural and visual details: What about punctuation? When read aloud, do the

  • sounds of the words contribute to the poem’s meaning?


Who is the speaker

Who is the speaker?

What is the structure of the poem? Two of the most important features to note here are

stanza and meter form.

What, primarily, is the poem about, and how do you know that?

Does the poem fall into an identifiable subgenre—for example, is it a sonnet, ballad,

haiku, or dramatic monologue?


Diction word choice

Diction (word choice):

Why has the poet chosen these particular words?

What words might have used instead, and why were they rejected in favor of others?


Imagery

Imagery:

What images does the poem evoke?

How are they evoked?

How has the poet placed them?

How do different images connect or contrast with one another?


Other aural and visual details

Other aural and visual details:

  • What about punctuation?

  • When read aloud, do the

  • sounds of the words contribute to the poem’s meaning?


Archetypes also called prototype

Archetypes. (also called prototype)

  • The original model or pattern from which copies are made or from which something develops.

  • It is also a symbol, theme, setting, or character that is thought to have some universal meaning and recurs in different times and places in myth, literature, folklore, dreams, and rituals.


Symbolism

Symbolism:

  • 1. The practice of representing things by means of symbols or of attributing symbolic meanings or significance to objects, events, or relationships.

  • 2. A system of symbols or representations.

  • 3. A symbolic meaning or representation.

  • 4. Revelation or suggestion of intangible conditions or truths by artistic invention.

  • 5. Symbolism The movement, theory, or practice of the late 19th-century Symbolists.


Metaphor

Metaphor:

  • A figure of speech in which an implicit comparison is made between two unlike things that actually have something in common.

  • "The [first thing] is a [second thing].“

    example: Her home was a prison.


Influence

Influence:

  • A power affecting a person, thing, or course of events, especially one that operates without any direct or apparent effort:

  • Most poems or poets derive from influence, even their own.


Personification

Personification

  • A figure of speech in which an inanimate object or abstraction is endowed with human qualities or abilities.

  • Examples: The radio sprang to life at the touch of a button.

    The wind whispered softly in the night.


Why should we read

Why Should we read?

  • · The United States ranks fifth on adult literacy skills when compared to other industrialized nations.

  • Adult low literacy can be connected to almost every socio-economic issue in the United States:

  • More than 65 percent of all state and federal corrections inmates can be classified as low literate.

  • Low health literacy costs between $106 billion and $236 billion each year in the U.S.

  • Seventy-seven million Americans have only a 2-in-3 chance of correctly reading an over-the-counter drug label or understanding their child's vaccination chart.

  • Low literacy’s effects cost the U.S. $225 billion or more each year in non-productivity in the workforce, crime, and loss of tax revenue due to unemployment.
