What is Poetry?

Poetry is a form of writing that uses not only words, but also form, patterns of sound, imagery, and figurative language to convey the message.

Scene 5 (1m 6s)

Which topic in Literature I most enjoyed and why?

I mostly enjoyed Literary Devices/Poetic Devices because literary devices is a very creative way to enhance your poems. Literary devices are techniques that writers use to create a special and pointed effect in their writing, to convey information, or to help readers understand their writing on a deeper level. Often, literary devices are used in writing for emphasis or clarity. Literary devices or literary techniques are specific structures that writers often use to add meaning or create more compelling stories for the reader. Some common examples are metaphor, alliteration, hyperbole, and imagery. These techniques can give the reader a greater understanding and meaning of the writer's intent.

Scene 6 (1m 41s)

Which topic in Literature I least enjoyed and why?

I loved every topic I did this term, last term and the first term. The topics was easy to understand with the help of my English Literature teacher Miss.Ottley. But if I have to say, the topic I least enjoyed is Poetry Comprehension . The reason I would say I didn’t really enjoy it than the other topics because Poetry Comprehension because it is hard to comprehend what the writer is saying and what the poet means when he says words that have different meaning. The first thing to note is that poetry is a special form of text in reading comprehension. It is shorter than your narratives and is heavy in figurative language ( that’s when words have a different meaning than what’s written ). We can associate different types of reading comprehension texts to different forms of artwork.

Assonance is defined as the act of repeating a vowel sound in a phrase or sentence, often in poetry. The definition of assonance is something that is similar, particularly in reference to sound. An example of assonance would be the similarity between the short e sound and the schwa sound. Examples of Assonance: Fl ee t f ee t sw ee p by sl ee ping g ee ks A pt a lliterations a rtful aid R o w r o w r o w y o ur b o at

Scene 8 (2m 46s)


Alliteration is defined as the repetition of usually initial consonant sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllables called also head rhyme, initial rhyme. OR The occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words. Examples of Alliteration: Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked? She sells seashells by the seashore.

Scene 9 (3m 13s)


A common definition of metaphor can be described as a comparison that shows how two things that are not alike in most ways are similar in another important way. They explain how a metaphor is simply understanding and experiencing one kind of thing in terms of another, called a "conduit metaphor ". Or What is a metaphor? Simply put, a metaphor is a figure of speech containing an implied comparison. With metaphors, words or phrases that are ordinarily applied to one type of item or concept are applied to something that is not ordinarily associated with that terminology. Examples of Metaphor: His words cut deeper than a knife. I think he's about to fade off to sleep. He is the apple of my eye. The moonlight sparkled brighter than a gypsy.

Scene 10 (3m 51s)


A simile describes something by comparing it to something else, using like or as. A simile is a useful way to describe something without using a long list of adjectives. Examples of Simile: Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. As sweet as a pie Colorful like crayons As quiet as a rat. As timid as a rabbit. As graceful as a swan

Scene 11 (4m 13s)


As a literary device, personification is the projection of characteristics that normally belong only to humans onto inanimate objects, animals, deities, or forces of nature. These characteristics can include verbs of actions that only humans do or adjectives that describe a human condition. Examples of Personification: My heart danced when he walked in the room. The hair on my arms stood after the performance. Why is your plant pouting in the corner? The wind is whispering outside. Additionally, that picture says a lot.
