“The Listeners” by Walter de la Mare “Is there anybody there?" said the Traveler,Knocking on the moonlit door;And his horse in the silence champed the grassOf the forest's ferny floor;And a bird flew up out of the turret,Above the Traveler's head:And he smote upon the door again a second time;"Is there anybody there?" he said.But no one descended to the Traveler;No head from the leaf-fringed sillLeaned over and looked into his grey eyes,Where he stood perplexed and still.
But only a host of phantom listenersThat dwelt in the lone house thenStood listening in the quiet of the moonlightTo that voice from the world of men:Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the dark stair,That goes down to the empty hall,Hearkening in an air stirred and shakenBy the lonely Traveler's call.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, evenLouder, and lifted his head:--"Tell them I came, and no one answered,That I kept my word," he said.Never the least stir made the listeners,Though every word he spakeFell echoing through the shadowiness of the still houseFrom 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.
Reader Response • What do YOU have to say about the poem? • How did it make you feel? Did you connect to it? What did it make you think of? • Any response is acceptable… except for no response at all. • (Or anything that is school inappropriate or describes why you hate poetry)
Literature Terms pg. 12 • Mood is the emotions that you feel while you are reading. Some literature makes you feel sad, happy, scared or angry. The main purpose for some literature is to set a mood. • It is created by imagery, events, colors, music, voices, setting, etc.
Literature Terms cont. • Tone is the attitude that is adopted by the author, speaker, or narrator toward the material. • Authors convey tone through their writing. • The words they use have a positive, negative or neutral tone
Mood Man! • Create a Mood Man on page 20 of your ISN. • Since mood is the effect of the writer's words on the reader, where on the stick drawing would mood be located? • Since tone is how the author thinks about his or her subject, where on the stick drawing should I write tone? The author's style conveys the tone in literature.
Video Clips • Divide the Mood Man in half • While viewing the first clip, write what the tone/mood is • While viewing the second clip, write what the tone/mood is
“The Landlady” pg. 171 • Create another mood man on page 22. • Beside it, or underneath, create a Flow Map • Write the mood and tone in the story so far • Then, write three events that have happened so far with three predictions about what will happen next in the story
