    So what do you think of poetry

    at the moment?

  • Writing about poetry

    A poet's mission is to make words do more work than they normally do, to make them work on more than one level, so you can use them to get at complicated truths in a way that straightforward storytelling fails to do.

  • Poetry Through Time

    A poet's mission is to make words do more work than they normally do, to make them work on more than one level, so you can use them to get at complicated truths in a way that straightforward storytelling fails to do.

  • 2. Form and Structure • What type of poem is it? ● How many lines? • How many stanzas? • Any unusually short or long lines?

  • Form/Structure • Form

    – what type of poem is it? • Structure

    – How is the poem arranged on the page? – What order are the ideas written in and why?

    The Fierce wind rages And I see how trees survive They have learned to bend

    Metaphor is developed

    Message

  • Structure A skilful poet will use structure to support the meaning of the poem. It includes:

    » What ideas, images of feelings occur in each stanza?

    » Is the structure appropriate for the topic?

    » Does the structure reflect the topic of the poem? eg. A shape poem.

    This limerick has a short and bouncy structure, which adds to its entertaining message. It reads quickly, so the reader doesn’t dwell on the message

  • The form a poem takes can hint at meaning.

     A haiku is usually about human experience and emotions.

     A limerick is nearly always a nonsense poem intended for fun.

     A sonnet is nearly always about love.

  • Example 2: Limerick

    There once was a teacher from leads, Who swallowed a packet of seeds. In less than an hour, Her nose was a flower, And her hair was covered in weeds.

    This poem has 5 lines, a rhyme scheme of aabba. That makes is a limerick. Therefore, the reader knows it is intended as humour.

  • Language This is the MOST IMPORTANT ONE.

    • Words (adjectives, verbs) • Techniques (similes, metaphors,

    repetition)

  • Language Why would a poet choose a word

    like…

    Desperate Sad Cruel Bad Ripped Separated Longing Want

  • Language • Words are

    loaded with meaning!!

  • Imagery • This is the IMAGES that the poem

    CREATES IN YOUR MIND. i.e. what you think of when you read it

  • Do you ever feel like a plastic bag Drifting through the wind, wanting

    to start again? Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin Like a house of cards, one blow from

    caving in?

    Baby, you're a firework Come on, let your colors burst Make 'em go, oh, oh, oh You're gonna leave 'em falling down

    Images created with words

  • Rhyme and rhythm Rhyme • Which words sound the same when you

    read them? • What is the rhyme scheme? Rhythm • What is the beat of the poem?

    (bouncy, steady, regular, all jumbled up?) ● Iambic pentameter?

    Regular rhyme helps the poem to flow and makes it enjoyable to read

  • Theme, topic, tone and atmosphere

    What do these words mean?  Theme  Topic  Tone  Atmosphere

  • Theme and tone? Theme is an enduring idea in a text. In this case it is war.

    Tone is what the author thinks; their attitude.

  • Same topic, different atmosphere

    • Topic is what something is ABOUT • Atmosphere is the mood of the piece
