Eng3050 Oxindine Wright State University Week of Notes Chapter One READING POETRY 0 Explore reading poetry out loud without being intimidated by the poem Snapping Beans by Lisa Parker Those Winter Sundays by Robert Hayden Poetry is associate to what means most to people Doggerel a term used for lines whose subject matter is trite and whose rhythm and sounds are careless I Oh Oh by William Hathaway page 24 is an example of poetry being random and something with no purpose Paraphrase a style restatement of the central in your own words I Example on page 27 of a paraphrase The Fish by Elizabeth Bishop page 31 has good examples of powerful details and use of a speaker the voice used by the author throughout the piece Verse a term used for lines composed in a rhythmical way but do not necessarily rhyme Canon works considered by scholars to be important Anagram words made from using letters of other words readdare I LA by EB Cummings Theme central idea or meaning Lyric a brief poem that expresses the personal emotions and thoughts of a speaker Narrative poem a poem that tells a story Epic a long narrative poem on a serious subject explaining heroic deeds or important events Cliches ideas or expressions that have become tired and worse out from overuse Sentimentality exploits the reader by inducing responses that exceed what the situation accounts for I We love the murder who has a soft spot for homeless cats Chapter Two WRITING ABOUT POETRY FROM INQUIRY TO FINAL PAPER 0 Writing about poetry can be more taxing than actually reading it I Find who the speaker is and What your theme is rather than sitting back and accepting What another author is giving you 0 Manners by Elizabeth Bishop page 59 is a good example of how all elements of poetry come together I Includes a simple language accompanied by a powerful message and important meaning I She also uses setting which helps the reader understand the WWI era Chapter Three WORD CHOICE WORD ORDER AND TONE O O O Diction word choice Characters and their actions appear in a poem but how the author uses language to articulate those elements is key Poetic diction the use of special language rather than ordinary language Poets have several levels of diction to portray their messages Formal diction dignified impersonal and elevated use of language Convergence of the Twain example page 66 Informal diction conversational relaxed Colloquially conversation within a piece Dialect spoken by definable groups of people from a geographic region economic group or social class informal diction Jargon defined by a trade or profession basketball lingo Denotations literal dictionary meanings of words Connotations associations and implications that go beyond a word s actual meaning I Derive from how a word has been used and the associations people tag to it I Resonance from a person s experiences with a word Persona a speaker created by a poet I The disembodied essence a reader feels while experiencing the poem Ambiguity allows for two or more simultaneous interpretations of a word phrase action or situation Syntax ordering of words into meaningful verbal patterns I An author uses syntax to place emphasis on a word Tone the writer s attitude toward the subject the mood created by all the elements in the poem Dramatic monologue a type of poem in which a character addresses a silent audience in a way to reveal unintentionally some aspect of his or her temperament or personality Carpe diem sieze the day Latin using poetry to relate to life I Knowing original meanings of words can help enrich your understanding of the authors message Allusion a brief cultural reference to a person place or thing even or idea in history or literature I Imply reading and cultural experiences shared by the poet and reader Chapter Four IMAGES 0 Image language that addresses the senses 39 Visual London s Summer Morning by Mary Robinson page 114 A poet uses images to express his or her own world to the readers Visual images provide verbal pictures of the poets experiences Poets create images to give us an experience as well and appeal to other senses as they write OOOO Chapter Five FIGURES OF SPEECH O 0 Figures of speech broadly defined as a way of saying one thing in terms of something else sarcasm Metaphor makes a comparison between two unlike things I Asserts the identity of dissimilar things brief candle and life is a walking shadow Implied metaphor hints and alludes to the metaphor or the things being compared Extended metaphor an entire poem is organized around the comparison Controlling metaphor where the entire poem is a metaphor Synecdoche figure of speech in which part of something is used to signify the whole Metonymy something is closely associated with a subject Personification giVing something human characteristics that one would not normally give an object I The toaster shot the toast out angrily Apostrophe an address to someone who is absent and cannot hear the speaker or to something nonhuman that cannot comprehend Overstatement exaggeration Hyperbole adds emphasis without intending to be literally true I The teenage boy ate everything in house referring to food not furniture Understatement says less than is intended Paradox a statement that initially appears to be selfcontradictory but actually makes sense Oxymoron condensed form of paradox which two contradictory words are used together I Alone together I Cheap money Chapter Six SYMBOL ALLEGORY AND IRONY O 0 Symbol something that represents something else I A handshake suggests greeting Conventional symbol recognized by many people to represent certain ideas I Roses beauty Literary or contextual symbol goes beyond traditional public meanings I Summarized in a few words I Night does not equal death or darkness but it is normally associated with the words Allegory a narration or description usually restricted to a single meaning because its events actions characters settings and objects represent specific abstractions or ideas Didactic poetry designed to teach an ethical moral or religious lesson Irony a technique that reveals a discrepancy between what appears to be and what is actually true I Richard Cory by Edwin Arlington Robinson I Reveals a shocking truth at the very end Situational irony what happens is entirely different from what is expected Verbal irony is different from what is meant I Tone of voice Satire literary art of ridiculing a folly or vice in an effort to expose or correct it Dramatic irony used when a writer allows a reader to know more about a situation than a character does I Explaining that the character is about to meet her soul mate before she knows
