Poetry

  • A single word in poetry says far more than

    a single word in prose. (Anderson, 264)

  • Characteristics: rhythm, sound patterns, figurative

    language, compactness and emotional intensity.

  • A good poem makes every word count and is concrete,

    not abstract.

  • Types of poetry: narrative – storytelling poetry; lyric – song

    poetry which uses rhythm, sounds and figurative

    language to evoke emotions.


Rhythm sound patterns and figurative language

  • RHYTHM

    • A regular pattern is called a meter

    • Adds meaning to the words chosen by

      the author
