Y8 – 22/11/16

Due: 25/11 & 29/11 (Issued: 22/11)

Title: Poetic Devices Revision

Task: You have been issued a double-sided revision sheet on Poetic Devices. This:

  • Names an important poetic device
  • Provides a definition
  • Gives examples of potential effect on the reader

You must revise from this sheet, quizzing and requizzing yourself in your exercise book so that you are able to:

  1. identify a device in a poem
  2. provide potential effects on the reader

Explanation: Poetic devices are used by poets for a specific effect, attempting to engage the reader, draw their attention to an important idea, reflect the theme or simply to create a vivid image in the reader’s mind.

Understanding the effect of these devices is the key to developing a deep response to poetry.
