3 SPLATT A strategy for poetry analysis

4 SPLATT : S – speaker P - purpose L – literary devices A - and T – theme T - tone

5 Splatt, like RAFT, gives the reader direction for the analysis of the poem.

6 S – Speaker In addition to identifying who the speaker is, you are also identifying the way the author expresses their opinion and emotion in their poem. For Sale One sister for sale! One crying and spying young sister for sale! I’m really not kidding, So who’ll start the bidding? Do I hear the dollar? A nickel? A penny? Oh, isn’t there, isn’t there, isn’t there any One kid that will buy this old sister for sale, This crying and spying young sister for sale? Eighteen Flavors By Shel Silverstein Eighteen luscious, scrumptious flavors Chocolate, lime and cherry, Coffee, pumpkin, fudge banana Caramel cream and boysenberry. Rocky road and toasted almond, Butterscotch, vanilla dip, Butter brickle, apple ripple, Coconut and mocha chip, Brandy peach and lemon custard, Each scoop lovely, smooth and round, Tallest ice cream cone in town, Lying there (sniff) on the ground.

7 P - purpose Just like RAFT the reader still needs to determine the purpose of the writing. You did this in RAFT when you were determining the format of the paper. Poetry has a purpose just like any other written work. The Boa Constrictor Song I'm being swallered by a Boa Constrictor a Boa Constrictor, a Boa Constrictor I'm being swallered by a Boa Constrictor and I don't - like snakes - one bit! Oh no, he swallered my toe. Oh gee, he swallered my knee. Oh fiddle, he swallered my middle. Oh what a pest, he swallered my chest. Oh heck, he swallered my neck. Oh, dread, he swallered my - (BURP) Green and speckled legs, Hop on logs and lily pads Splash in cool water.

8 L – Literary Devices Poetry uses literary devices to develop the mood and tone of the poem. They help the reader understand the emotion, importance, and event within the poem. KABOOM! by Denise Rodgers Kaboom! Ka-blast Way in the past the miners mined for ore. They searched for copper, iron and salt, for that and much, much more. Kaboom! The bite of dynamite cut deep inside the earth. The charge explodes revealing lodes of minerals of worth. Kaboom! The dust, the air so mussed went swirling through the sky. It was a sight, the dynamite that made the mountains fly. Kaboom! The earth was filled with mirth so tickled by the boom. The miner's pleasure, each newfound treasure that followed each Kaboom! Crazy Words People play poker in a place called Pop's While tigers go tramping on tree tops Kids practice canning, with Kathy and Claire As Harold and Helen have fun with their hair Eat Wisely Franks and fries, and French fondue Beans and burgers and biscuits too Chicken, chili, and cheddar cheese When I munch too much, I always sneeze! Poetry by Alan Loren


10 T – theme Theme is the main idea of a story, poem, novel, or drama. Theme is the message about life or human nature the writer wants to convey. Theme of this poem: a father who sometimes forgets that his son has become a grown-up. Sentimental Moment or Why Did the Baguette Cross the Road? Robert Hershon Don't fill up on bread I say absent-mindedly The servings here are huge My son, whose hair may be receding a bit, says Did you really just say that to me? What he doesn't know is that when we're walking together, when we get to the curb I sometimes start to reach for his hand

11 T – tone Tone describes the author’s attitude toward his subject. Tone reflects the author’s purpose. If the author’s purpose is to inform, the tone may be serious. If the author’s purpose is to entertain, the tone may be humorous. Tone is not stated directly. Tone must be inferred from clues in the writing. The language and details the writer chooses help create the tone. Tone refers to the feelings of the writer. "To My Dear and Loving Husband" by Anne Bradstreet If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were loved by wife, then thee; If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye women, if you can. I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold Or all the riches that the East doth hold. My love is such that rivers cannot quench, Nor ought but love from thee, give recompense. Thy love is such I can no way repay, The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. Then while we live, in love let's so persevere That when we live no more, we may live ever.
