LEARNING OBJECTIVE

  • Read and interpret a wide range of poems


Think of as many silver things as you can in thirty seconds.


SILVER – WALTER DE LA MARE


SILVER – WALTER DE LA MARE

Slowly, silently, now the moonWalks the night in her silver shoon;This way, and that, she peers, and seesSilver fruit upon silver trees;One by one the casements catchHer beams beneath the silvery thatch;Couched in his kennel, like a log,With paws of silver sleeps the dog;From their shadowy cote the white breasts peepOf doves in silver feathered sleepA harvest mouse goes scampering by,With silver claws, and silver eye;And moveless fish in the water gleam,By silver reeds in a silver stream.

LEARNING OBJECTIVE

  • Read and interpret a wide range of poems


WALTER DE LA MARE

  • Walter de la Mare uses imagery and sound to write mysterious poems.

  • Walter de la Mare was an English author and poet, probably best known for his children’s poetry. He was born in 1873 and died in 1956.


THE LISTENERS

  • The Listeners was published in 1913. It uses literary words that are not often used today.

  • ‘champed’,‘smote’, ‘spake’, ‘Ay’.


THE LISTENERS


THE LISTENERS

  • Why do they think the poem is called The Listeners and not The Traveller?


THE LISTENERS

  • From what viewpoint is this poem told from?


PERSPECTIVE

The poem begins with the reader seeing things from the Traveller’s point of view and, at the end, leaves the reader with the listeners’ point of view:

‘... the silence surged softly backward,

When the plunging hoofs were gone’.


IT’S A MYSTERY…

The poem does not explain everything about the mysterious situation. Readers have to use their imagination to fill in the gaps.


THE LISTENERS

‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Traveller,

Knocking on the moonlit door;

And his horse in the silence champed the grasses

Of the forest’s ferny floor:

And a bird flew up out of the turret,

Above the Traveller’s head:


THE LISTENERS

And he smote upon the door again a second time;

‘Is there anybody there?’ he said.

But no one descended to the Traveller;

No head from the leaf-fringed sill

Leaned over and looked into his grey eyes,

Where he stood perplexed and still.


THE LISTENERS

And he felt in his heart their strangeness,

Their stillness answering his cry,

While his horse moved, cropping the dark turf,

’Neath the starred and leafy sky;

For he suddenly smote on the door, even

Louder, and lifted his head:—

‘Tell them I came, and no one answered,

That I kept my word,’ he said.


THE LISTENERS

Never the least stir made the listeners,

Though every word he spake

Fell echoing through the shadowiness of the still house

From the one man left awake:

Ay, they heard his foot upon the stirrup,

And the sound of iron on stone,

And how the silence surged softly backward,

When the plunging hoofs were gone.


THE LISTENERS

Whose house is it? Who are ‘they’?

Who is the Traveller and why did he come?

Who are the listeners?

Where does the Traveller ride away to?


TASK

To write a short recount of the story of the listeners.

To write a diary entry from the perspective of the traveller.

To write a short newspaper article of what happened at the old inn door.


LEARNING OBJECTIVE

  • Identify and explain poetic devices for creating images.


THE LISTENERS

The Listeners is a poem that they have to listen to very carefully, because it uses sounds very effectively.


What can you tell me about the rhythm?

What can you tell me about the rhyme?


What do you think ‘soft sounding’ words are?


What do you think ‘hard sounding’ words are?


LET’S FIND…

Rhythm

Rhyme

Alliteration

Onomatopoeias

Hard sounding words

Soft Sounding words


LEARNING OBJECTIVE

  • To use figurative language to begin to write imagery poems.


FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE

  • I am going to say a word or phrase, on your mini – whiteboards, write the name of the literary device.


A MYSTERY

  • today we are going to begin to create our own poems about a mystery character, the poem will mainly focus on the description of the character, rather than attempting to tell a story.


OUR CHARACTER

This man can be found sitting on the platform of this train station. He sits and he waits and waits, always glancing towards the clock, but never getting on a train. He never speaks, he never smiles, he just waits and waits…

What is he waiting for? Why?


OUR CHARACTER

  • Do we need to explain why he is waiting in our poem?

  • Why might we leave out this piece of vital information?


SUCCESS CRITERIA

  • With your partner, discuss what you think we should include in our success criteria for our poem.
