Poetry Expressions of the Soul

2 The average student doesn’t like poetry because they don’t “get it.”

3 What does it mean to “get it”?

4 Are all interpretations correct
Are all interpretations correct? Can you make a poem mean whatever you want it to?

5 NO!!

6 Here’s the deal… As long as your interpretation is supported by the text, your opinion is valid.

7 When analyzing a poem be prepared to discuss these two areas:
Here’s the deal… When analyzing a poem be prepared to discuss these two areas:

8 Literary Devices The meaning of the poem
Here’s the deal… Literary Devices The meaning of the poem

9 I better write these terms down!
Here’s the deal with Literary Devices… Simile Metaphor Alliteration Assonance Personification Rhyme Slant Rhyme Symbolism Imagery Hyperbole Idiomatic Expression Meter 13. Pun 14. Blank Verse 15. Free Verse 16. Onomatopoeia I better write these terms down!

10 Here’s the deal… Because this is not my first study of poetry, most of these terms I already know, so we can skip those.

11 repetition of beginning consonant sounds
Here’s the deal with Literary Devices… alliteration repetition of beginning consonant sounds Example: Beowulf bode in the burg

12 reference to a historical,
Here’s the deal with Literary Devices… allusion reference to a historical, literary, or biblical character, event or element Example: I’ll leave you on a higher note, than when Mariah Carey hit her highest note.

13 slant rhyme a close rhyme (imperfect rhyme) Example: Car/popular
Here’s the deal with Literary Devices… slant rhyme a close rhyme (imperfect rhyme) Example: Car/popular Bottle/ Model

14 deliberately exploits confusion between
Here’s the deal with Literary Devices… pun deliberately exploits confusion between similar-sounding words for humorous or rhetorical effect. Example: Sign in a golf-cart shop: "When drinking, don't drive. Don't even putt." (Puns on "driving" and "putting" a golf ball, vs. "driving" a car or "putting" around in a golf cart.)

15 Figuring Out The meaning of the poem
Here’s the deal with… Figuring Out The meaning of the poem

16 Steps to Decode a Poem Based on the author’s biographical information, determine the time period and ascertain what the poem should be about. Identify the speaker and the audience. Using the +/- method, identify the tone. Break up the poem into stanzas. Read for complete thoughts. Based on the complete thoughts that you read, attempt to paraphrase the meaning as you go. Re-read what you’ve paraphrased, and attempt to summarize the stanzas.

17 My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips’ red; If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damask’d, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound; I grant I never saw a goddess go; My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:    And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare    As any she belied with false compare.

18 Talking the talk… Now that you have identified the literary devices, and you’ve figured out what the poem is about, now you’ve got to talk about it!

19 Example: In Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman”…
Talking the talk… Use the author’s last name and the name of the work to give your conversation that “scholarly” academic feel Example: In Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman”…

20 Talking the talk… Stanza 1 is about…
Pick something you can say with confidence…. This is a poem about… Stanza 1 is about… There are a lot of devices in this poem, for example in stanza 1, line 5 …… This poem fits into this time period because… This poem reminds me of …

21 Talking the talk… The key is you have to PROVE IT!

22 "Get it!"

23 "Got it?"

24 How to Fix SVCHOST.EXE Application Error 0x745f2780
The instruction at "Ox745f2780" referenced memory at "0x ". The memory could not be "read" I came across this error the other day at a customer's house. They have Windows XP Professional with a password set for the main administrator account. When they turned their computer on and it came up to the user login screen. They were presented with this SVCHOST.EXE error message.  The only options the error message allows are to click OK to terminate the program or click Cancel to debug the program. After asking them several questions about what they did before turning the computer off, it became apparent that Windows Update had run before the computer was shut down. Interestingly enough, even starting the computer in Safe Mode produced the same error. While the event log in Windows XP indicates the faulting application is truly svchost.exe. Click on Start, Run and type the following command in the open box and click OK services.msc Find the Automatic Updates service and double-click on it. Click on the Log On Tab and make sure the "Local System Account" is selected as the logon account and the box for "allow service to interact with desktop" is UNCHECKED. Under the Hardware Profile section in the Log On Tab, make sure the service is enabled. On the General Tab, the Startup Type should be Automatic, if not, drop the box down and select Automatic.  Under "Service Status" on the General tab, the service should be Started, click the Start button enable it. Repeat the steps above for the service "Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)" Re-Register Windows Update DLLs Click on Start, Run, and type CMD and click ok In the black command window type the following command and press Enter REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL Wait until you receive the "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" message and click OK Repeat the last two steps above for each of the following commands: REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL REGSVR32 ATL.DLL REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL Remove Corrupted Windows Update Files At the command prompt, type the following command and press Enter net stop WuAuServ Still at the command prompt, type cd %windir% and press Enter In the opened folder, type the following command and press Enter to rename the SoftwareDistribution Folder ren SoftwareDistribution SD_OLD Restart the Windows Update Service by typing the following at the command prompt net start WuAuServ type Exit and Press Enter to close the command prompt Reboot Windows click on Start, Shut Down, and Restart to reboot Windows XP Although this method may not solve all of the issues with a SVCHOST.EXE Application error, I have found it fixed the problem with the 0x745f2780 reference error. How to Repair this SVCHOST.EXE errorAfter some investigating into the 0X745f2780 SVCHOST error, it became apparent the problem is a corrupted Windows Update in Windows XP. Follow the steps below to fix this error. Verify Windows Update Service Settings Good!
