Describe the differences between ethos, pathos and logos, and what effect they have. Entry Task- Final prep
Limerick History It’s a little unclear exactly where the Limerick comes from, but it’s believed that it originates from France, traveled to England, and then in the early 1700s, it brought to Ireland. Pub limerick began around this time. 1776 children’s nursery rhymes (Mother Goose) followed similar pattern.
Continued History The humor and easy creation of limericks infused oral poetry across class-lines. Wrote one critic, "It is the vehicle of cultivated, unrepressed humor in the English language."
The Limerick The limerick packs laughs anatomical Into space that is quite economical; The good ones I've seen Are seldom so clean, Whilst the clean ones are seldom so comical.
Form The limerick has not only a set end rhyme scheme, but also a set syllable and meter. Rhyme scheme is AABBA Syllables are far more complicated. Lines 1,2, 5 have 9 syllables, and for every set of 3, 1 is stressed. (da da DA, da da DA, da da DA; or da DA da, da DA da, da Da da Lines 3 and 4 have 6 syllables with same stress/unstress (da da DA, da da DA or da DA da, da DA da) The form is set, but MANY limericks have slight variation, often in syllable count. The important thing is that 1, 2 match and 3,4 match, and 5 is close -or matches- 1,2)
Rhyme scheme labeled The limerick packs laughs anatomical A Into space that is quite economical; A The good ones I’ve seen B Are seldom so clean, B Whilst the clean ones are seldom so comical.A This limerick follows the rhyme scheme and meter, but not the syllable count.
Stressed syllables labeled There was a young man of Darjeeling Endowed with such delicate feeling. When he read on the door "Do not spit on the floor", He jumped up and then spat on the ceiling! The underlined words are the stressed syllables.
The Limerick is often inappropriate Many of the “pub” limericks (the most well known style) fall into 3 categories: Those you can’t say in front of a lady or a clergy member. Those you can’t say in front of a lady. Those that are clean, but not nearly as fun Though there are “censored” ones.
Censoring: Sort of Censoring: Sort of I was feeling quite down on my luck When I slipped over into some muck; I went head-over-lung, Got covered in dung And shouted, quite loudly, 'Oh, bother!‘ The limerick is censored, but you, as readers, know exactly what word should go there. Making it humorous.
Your Limerick You will try to write your own limerick. I need you to keep it “clean” Slight innuendos are okay, but I need you to keep in mind me, your peers, and possible administrators. Try to follow the rhyme scheme and syllable requirements. Slight variations will be accepted, but major variations will not. Can you write a limerick about Romeo and Juliet?
