3.0 Literary Response and Analysis Students read and respond to historically or culturally significant works of literature that reflect and enhance their studies of history and social science. They conduct in-depth analyses of recurrent themes. Structural Features of Literature 3.1 Analyze characteristics of subgenres (e.g., satire, parody, allegory, pastoral) that are used in poetry, prose, plays, novels, short stories, essays, and other basic genres. Narrative Analysis of Grade-Level-Appropriate Text 3.2 Analyze the way in which the theme or meaning of a selection represents a view or comment on life, using textual evidence to support the claim. 3.3 Analyze the ways in which irony, tone, mood, the author's style, and the "sound" of language achieve specific rhetorical or aesthetic purposes or both. 3.4 Analyze ways in which poets use imagery, personification, figures of speech, and sounds to evoke readers' emotions. 3.6 Analyze the way in which authors through the centuries have used archetypes drawn from myth and tradition in literature, film, political speeches, and religious writings (e.g., how the archetypes of banishment from an ideal world may be used to interpret Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth). 3.7 Analyze recognized works of world literature from a variety of authors: a. Contrast the major literary forms, techniques, and characteristics of the major literary periods (e.g., Homeric Greece, medieval, romantic, neoclassic, modern). b. Relate literary works and authors to the major themes and issues of their eras. c. Evaluate the philosophical, political, religious, ethical, and social influences of the historical period that shaped the characters, plots, and settings. Students will be able to recall past knowledge about poetry to apply to new unit of study. Students will be able to differentiate between romantic and romanticism and apply the new idea of Romanticism to their own writing. Students will be able to define and utilize the important terms and literary devices for this unit. Students will be able to construct an informational document that outlines important aspects, events, and people of the romantic period. Students will be able to break down their chosen poem and compare and contrast it to the idea of romanticism. Students will be able to interpret the symbols and ideas from Blake’s poetry and relate it to their own beliefs.

Your PoemYour Poem Take out your poem, it needs to be on a separate sheet of paper. We are going to play musical papers- sort of. Keep passing the papers until the music stops.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner Samuel Taylor Coleridge Romanticism day 3
Background Originally published in 1798 as The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere. the language went against the emerging Romantic tradition of writing in contemporary, unrhymed language so in 1817 the version we know today was published and aligned more closely with the ideals of Romanticism.
Background A story of adventure, misfortune, cursed sailors, and punishment. inspired the band Iron Maiden to write a song by the same name “Hear the rime of the ancient mariner See his eye as he stops one of three Mesmerizes one of the wedding guests Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the sea. And the music plays on, as the bride passes by Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale.” idea of a cursed crew in Pirates of the Caribbean

Vocabulary Coleridge uses archaic vocabulary to help create his language of fantasy for the world he is creating in his work. Archaic words are words no longer in common use. Why do you think Coleridge would make this choice in diction? it highlights the difference between normal, everyday speech and that of his romantic era poetry. Look to the text and notes on the next slide for definitions of unfamiliar words.

They will be in the PowerPoint of the class that the reading for those questions is due. I will also post a word document of all questions on one page if you prefer it that way.
Imagery This poem is filled with imagery that matches up with all the poetic devices, figurative language, and symbolism. All of this adds together to create this world of fantasy Coleridge is creating. Even though the ideas, events, motifs, etc. in this poem can be dark or “Gothic” it is still a prime example of Romanticism because of the themes, focus, and ideas. Pay attention to examples of this.
