Warm UP If you were asked on a test to analyze the “sound devices” of a poem, what do you think you are being asked to do? In a brief paragraph, explain your interpretation of literary “sound devices.”
Today’s Learning Goal I will be able to analyze the sound devices used in the poems found in poetry collection #7 by filling out the sound device chart provided. I will know I’ve met my goal when I can explain a poem’s use of sound devices in complete sentences.
CONSONANTVOWEL What’s the Difference between a CONSONANT and a VOWEL? Vowels = a, e, i, o, u Consonants = every other letter in the alphabet
Poetic Sound Devices Sound devices can: – Add to the mood of a poem – Imitate the sound of events – Reflect a poem’s meaning
Alliteration The repetition of consonant sounds at the beginnings of nearby words: – The sound of the singing sisters – The babbling brook – Winter’s worst weather
Assonance The repetition of vowel sounds in nearby stressed syllables. Unlike rhyming syllables, assonant syllables can end in different consonants. – She was in a deep and dreamless sleep. – Row, row, row, your, boat.
Consonance The repetition of consonant sounds at the ends of nearby stressed syllables with different vowel sounds: – The heat of the lighting burnt my skin. – Do not go gentle into that good night. – Dragging the lazy loafer along the line.
Onomatopoeia The use of words to imitate actual sounds – BUZZ, TAP, SPLASH, ZOOM, BANG, POP
