Irony – A disconnect between what is (reality) and what seems to be (appearance). 3 types: Dramatic – when an audience knows something that the characters on stage do not. Verbal – using words to compare reality and appearance. Situational – when events align in a way that compare reality and appearance. Couplet – two linked lines of poetry that rhyme.
A sonnet is a 14 lined poem. It means “little song.” It has a strict rhyme scheme. It uses Iambic Pentameter. 10 syllables per line. 5 beats per line.
Octave: 8 lines describes the conflict or problem Sestet: 6 lines gives a resolution Rhyme Scheme: A B A B C D C D E F G E F G
Because William Shakespeare became a great practitioner. 3 Quatrains and a couplet Quatrain: 4 lines each Couplet: 2 lines The couplet is closed, which means it rhymes.
The quatrains introduce the problem or conflict. The couplet introduces the resolution or solution.
Rhyme Scheme: A B A B C D C D E F E F GG Uses Iambic Pentameter
Sonnet 1: Read the sonnet. First, look at the sonnet’s construction. This one has two quatrains (8 lines) And a sestet (6 lines) We can assume that the poem is Italian.
However to be sure we have to look at the rhyme scheme: It: A Happen: B Sit: A Sin: B Night- C Safely- D Fight- C See- D Today- E Here- F Home- G Say- E Clear- F Alone- G
Since the sonnet is Italian, we know the problem or conflict is in the first 8 lines. What is the conflict? And we know the solution is in the last 6 lines. What is the resolution?
Write a paragraph about what sonnet 1 could mean in the past or present? Journal Entry: How does Sonnet One relate to your life?
Sonnet 2: Read the sonnet. First, look at the sonnet’s construction. This one has three quatrains (4 lines each) And a closed couplet (2 lines that rhyme) We can assume that the poem is Shakespearean.
But to be sure, we will look at the rhyme scheme: You- A Closer- B Do- A Sure- B Me- C Others- D See- C Another- D
Since the sonnet is Shakespearean, we know the problem or conflict is restated three times in the first three quatrains: What is the conflict? And we know the solution is in the last 2 lines- the couplet. What is the resolution?
