  3. Definition Figurative language is the opposite of literal language. The words go beyond what they exactly mean for a special effect.

  4. Simile • Definition: • A comparison of unlike things that uses like or as • Example: • Mrs. Buckley was as angry as a hornet. • NOT: Mrs. Buckley was as angry as Mrs. Sabelhaus.

  5. Metaphor • Definition: • A comparison of unlike things • Usually uses a linking verb • Subject = something you normally wouldn’t call the subject • Example: • The boy was a tiny mouse squeaking in the corner.

  7. Onomatopoeia • Definition: • A word that sounds like the noise it describes. • Example: • The car vroomed down the quiet street. • “Bark! Bark!” said the beagle.

  8. Personification • Definition: • Describing something that isn’t living (inanimate) as if it was living • Example: • The sun smiled down on the city as a new day began. • The ice angrily beat against the windows.

  9. Hyperbole • Definition: • Exaggeration • Example: • Jill was furious. When she yelled at Jack, astronauts in outer space could hear every word!

  10. Allusion • Definition: • A reference to a famous person, place, event, literary work, myth, or work of art • Example: • That boy is always in love, so we call him Romeo. • Romeo – romantic boy, from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet • He was a natural Babe Ruth and led the team to the championship with his home runs. • Babe Ruth – excellent baseball player • George is a Scrooge even at Christmas time. • Scrooge – stingy person, from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

  19. Your Homework for Tonight: • You have a choice! • Option 1: Make a simile poem for yourself like Bob Seger did with “Like a Rock”. You might be like a teddy bear waiting to be loved, like a candle glowing in the dark, like a notebook longing to be filled with information, or like a skateboard’s wheel with scuff marks all over it. • Option 2: Make a hyperbole poem for reasons why you didn’t do your homework. • Both poems need to be at least 15 lines long.  • A solid ROUGH DRAFT is due tomorrow!  • THESE DO NOT HAVE TO RHYME!!!!

  20. Sensory Visual

  21. Sensory Language • SENSory language refers to language that appeals to your SENSES • SIGHT: • The red barn reminded me of the family farm. • SOUND: • The babbling brook and singing songbird relaxed me. • TASTE: • The second the delicious, salty pretzel hit my mouth, I was in heaven. • TOUCH: • I spent the morning brushing my dog’s soft, silky hair. • SMELL: • I sat on the swing enjoying the sweet aroma of the flowers.

  22. Your family has signed up to have a foreign exchange student from Thailand stay at your house for a month. Once the student arrives, you realize after your conversation that they have NEVER before had a chocolate chip cookie! Using sensory details, describe what a chocolate chip cookie would taste like in your composition notebook.

  23. Your Task for Today… You will be broken into 7 groups. Start at the station that matches your given number. You will rotate between each station clockwise, once you hear the bell ring twice. At each station, you will interact with figurative language in a different way. After the stations, you will be given time to start your homework.

  25. Sound Devices • Alliteration-words in a series begin with same letter • Sally sold sea shells by the sea shore • Assonance- repetition of vowel sounds • I like to bike, and I like to hike at night. • Internal Rhyme-a poetic device by which two or more words rhyme within the same line of verse • Birds fly gracefully through the bright blue sky • End Rhyme- words at the end of lines that rhyme • Example: • Mr. Ross wants to be a butterfly Don’t ask me, I don’t know why • Onomatopoeia-words that represent sounds • Examples: buzz, achoo, beep, crackle, ouch, shhh, boom • Rhyme Scheme - the pattern of rhymes used in a poem, usually marked by letters to symbolize correspondences, ababbcc.

  26. Willow and Ginkgo by Eve MerriamThe willow is like an etching,Fine-lined against the sky.The ginkgo is like a crude sketch,Hardly worthy to be signed.The willow’s music is like a soprano,Delicate and thin.The ginkgo’s line is like a chorusWith everyone joining in.The willow is sleek as a velvet-nosed calf;The ginkgo is leathery as an old bull.The willow’s branches are like silken thread;The ginkgo’s like stubby rough wool.The willow is like a nymph with streaming hair;Where ever it grows, there is green and gold and fair.The willow dips into the water,Protected and precious, like the king’s favorite daughter.The ginkgo forces its way through gray concrete;Like a city child, it grows up in the street.Thrust against the metal sky,Somehow it survives and even thrives.My eyes feast upon the willow,But my heart goes to the ginkgo.

  27. In-class Assignment • Create a poem over any topic that is at least ten lines. • The poem must include: • 2 Different types of Figurative Language • 2 Different types of Sensory Language • 2Different types of Sound Devices

  28. Elegy • My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;The ship is anchored safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won; • Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells! • But I, with mournful tread, • Walk the deck my Captain lies, • Fallen cold and dead. • Walt Whitman • written in 1865 Elegy: a mournful poem for the dead O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring: But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells; Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills; For you bouquets and ribboned wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding; For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning; Here Captain! dear father! This arm beneath your head; It is some dream that on the deck, You’ve fallen cold and dead.

  29. Elegy in Song • “Candle in the Wind” by Sir Elton JohnGoodbye Norma Jean Though I never knew you at all You had the grace to hold yourself While those around you crawled They crawled out of the woodwork And they whispered into your brain They set you on the treadmill And they made you change your name And it seems to me you lived your life Like a candle in the wind Never knowing who to cling to When the rain set in And I would have liked to have known you But I was just a kid Your candle burned out long before Your legend ever did Loneliness was tough The toughest role you ever played Hollywood created a superstar And pain was the price you paid Even when you died Oh the press still hounded you All the papers had to say Was that Marilyn was found in the nude Goodbye Norma Jean From the young man in the 22nd row Who sees you as something as more than sexual More than just our Marilyn Monroe

  30. Elegy in Song • “Good Bye, England’s Rose” by Sir Elton John • Goodbye England's roseMay you ever grow in our hearts You were the grace that placed itself Where lives were torn apart You called out to our country And you whispered to those in pain Now you belong to heaven And the stars spell out your name • {Refrain} And it seems to me you lived your life Like a candle in the wind Never fading with the sunset when the rain set inAnd your footsteps will always fall here Along England's greenest hills Your candle's burned out long beforeYour legend ever will • Loveliness we've lost These empty days without your smile This torch we'll always carryFor our nation's golden child And even though we try The truth brings us to tears All our words cannot express The joy you brought us through the years {Refrain}Goodbye England's rose May you ever grow in our hearts You were the grace that placed itself Where lives were torn apart Goodbye England's rose From a country lost without your soul Who'll miss the wings of your compassion More than you'll ever know

  31. Homework for Tonight • Create an elegy poem (a mournful poem for the dead) for a person that has died. • You can create a poem for someone who you know that has died or for someone who you don’t know. • For example, if you don’t know anyone who has died, you can write an elegy for the victims from the tornado that hit Indiana, the victims of 9-11, or any other tragedy. • Remember, this is mournful poem – not a happy poem, but a sad, gloomy poem.  • Due tomorrow! • This needs to have at least 15 lines, and include the following: 3 different types of figurative language, 3 different sound devices.

  32. Concrete Poems Definition: a poem whose meaning is conveyed through its graphic shape or pattern on the printed page; also called a shape poem.

  33. What is the point of Concrete Poems??!?! “Concrete poetry asks us to look at the word: at its esthetic properties as a composition of letters, each of which is a beautiful object in its own right...Concrete poetry asks us to contemplate the relationship of words to each other and the space they occupy” Mary Ellen Solt

  34. Your Assignment What issues are important to you? Peer pressure? Bullying? War? Animal testing? Divorce? If that issue could talk, what would it say? Choose a shape that would convey this message, just as Mary Ellen Solt did in “Forsythia.” Write a poem that conveys this message using the shape.
