About PoetrySometimes poetry has no particular form or rhyme scheme; these types of poems are called free verse poems.Traditionally, however, poems had a particular format and/ or rhyming pattern. The subject matter and form of a poem may put it in a particular category like ballad, epic, lyric, sonnet, ode, elegy, narrative etc.A type of literature that expresses ideas, feelings, or tells a story in a specific form (usually using lines and stanzas)
Types of stanzasCouplet=a two line stanzaTriplet (Tercet)=a three line stanzaQuatrain=a four line stanzaQuintet=a five line stanzaSestet (Sextet)=a six line stanzaSeptet=a seven line stanza
Give ME a Beat!The beat created by the sounds of the words in a poemRhythm can be created by meter, rhyme, alliteration and refrain.
MeterA pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables.Meter occurs when the stressed and unstressed syllables of the words in a poem are arranged in a repeating pattern.When poets write in meter, they count out the number of stressed (strong) syllables and unstressed (weak) syllables for each line. They they repeat the pattern throughout the poem.
meter cont...FOOT - unit of meter. A foot can have two or three syllables.Usually consists of one stressed and one or more unstressed syllables.The types of feet are determined by the arrangement of stressed and unstressed syllables.
Types of feetIambic - unstressed, stressed Trochaic - stressed, unstressedAnapestic - unstressed, unstressed, stressedDactylic - stressed, unstressed, unstressed
Types of metric linesKinds of Metrical Lines:monometer=one foot on a linedimeter=two feet on a linetrimeter =three feet on a linetetrameter=four feet on a linepentameter=five feet on a line
Free-verseUnlike metered poetry, free verse poetry does NOT have any repeating patterns of stressed and unstressed syllables.Does NOT have to rhyme.Free verse poetry is very conversational - sounds like someone talking with you.A more modern type of poetry.
ONOMATOPOEIAWords that imitate the sound they are naming!OR sounds that imitate another sound!Examples: buzz, pow, fizzle, and sizzle.
Alliteration:Consonant sounds repeated at the beginnings of wordsExample: Hot-hearted Beowulf was bent upon battle.
Write another example in your notes!
ConsonanceSimilar to alliteration; however, the repeated consonant sounds can be anywhere in the word.Example: silken, sad, uncertain, rustling...
AssonanceRepeated vowel sounds in a line (or lines) of poetry.This often creates near rhyme. What is near rhyme?Example: Lake....Fate...Base...FadeExample: Slow the low gradual moan came in the snowing.-John Masefield
RefrainA sound, word, phrase or line repeated regularly in a poem.Quoth the raven, nevermore.http://www.oafe.net/yo/art/mcsimp2rav2.jpghttp://afrocityblog.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/raven.jpg
