My boss is crazy
he eats thirty bananas a day
wears expensive suits
he weighs over two hundred kilos
he knuckle walks
when boss is mad he does the chest beating
he always looks mad
Q: What are “poetic devices”?
A: Poetic devices are tools used by poets to make poems more interesting, more fun, more emotional, more touching, more unusual, and more poetic.
The time has come to look at some very common and useful poetry terms (we call these things “devices”) that you will surely run into later in this class or other classes. Because Kitara is happening this week, we are only meeting once; Tuesday the 26th. Next time will be Monday, June 1. On this day, you will need to have definitions in your own words and real examples of the following terms.
DEVELOPING LANGUAGE is responsible for the terms in blue. THE STANDARDS are responsible for terms in blue and green. THE HONORS group is responsible for blue, green and red. For section two of the scrapbook, you need to do the following:
1) Pick a partner you trust and can work with. This is your buddy for section two. someone you can depend on and who can depend on you.
2) Provide a definition of what the poetry term means. This should be in your own words that you can understand. PLEASE DO NOT cut and paste definitions from the internet, I will not count those and they don’t help you anyway.
3) Find a real/existing example of the device used in poetry. Include this example in your scrapbook. Make sure the title and poets name are included. No title? No poet’s name? Then don’t use it. If you are looking at a very long poem, just include the useful parts that show the device in action. Use highlighter or colored pens to label each example. Just including the example without labeling is not enough.
4) Be prepared to share and compare on Monday, June 1. Before the end of the year we will have a quiz on poetry devices.
