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:
- identify a device in a poem
- 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.
There are two due dates, as you will be assessed this week and next.
For: 25/11; revise the first 9 (Alliteration to Meter)
For: 29/11; revise all 18 (Alliteration to Tone)
