TP-CASTT Poetry Analysis



1/09 Poetry Unit: TP-CASTT - Blume









It is a method used by our high schools to help us understand, appreciate, and communicate about poetry and the power of words.

first let s review some vocabulary
First, let’s review some vocabulary:
  • literal = means “exact” or “not exaggerated”. Literal language is language that means exactly what is said. Most of the time, we use literal language.
  • figurative = the opposite of literal language. Figurative language is language that means more than what it says on the surface. Often used by poets and other writers.
review vocabulary continued
Review vocabulary, continued:
  • denotation = the dictionary definition of a word or phrase
  • connotation = a meaning suggested by a word or phrase, in addition to its exact (denotative) meaning; can be the emotional feelings associated with the word

Think of the denotative and connotative meanings of words such as home, mother, love, peace, friend, etc.

Piano by D. H. Lawrence.

Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me; Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she sings.

In spite of myself, the insidious mastery of song Betrays me back, till the heart of me weeps to belong To the old Sunday evenings at home, with winter outside And hymns in the cozy parlour, the tinkling piano our guide.

So now it is vain for the singer to burst into clamour With the great black piano appassionato. The glamour Of childish days is upon me, my manhood is cast Down in the flood of remembrance, I weep like a child for the past.

Doing a TP-CASTT poem analysis will help you turn your observations into meaningful discussions or writing.

You have noticed the details - now can put them together so you can understand and talk about the poem much better.
