Presentation Transcript

  1. Literary terms Tall tales and satire

  2. Tall Tale • An exaggeration or invention • Typically, their heroes are bold but sometimes foolish characters who may have superhuman abilities or who may act as if they do

  3. Satire • Literature that exposes to ridicule the vices or follies of people or societies • The satirist aims to correct, by an exposure to ridicule, deviations from normal conduct or reasonable opinion. • The chief tool of satire is to exaggerate deformities to the point at which their absurdity is unmistakably apparent

  4. Pair Share for Tall-Tale • LEQ: How is “The Devil and Tom Walker” a tall-tale? • You and your partner need to find three examples of why it is a tall-tale. Write each one down. • Need to write the page number as well where the example is found.

  5. Pair Share for Satire • LEQ: What is Washington Irving satirizing in the story? • You and your partner need to explain what should be corrected in the society? Name three things. • Find an example of the three things you believe need to be corrected in the Puritan society. • Write the examples down and also write what page you found it on.
