Type of Poetry Narrative - poetry that tells a story. Has plot, characters, and a setting. Unlike a fiction story the narrative poem uses sound devices such as repetition. Lyric - poetry verse that expresses a poet's thoughts and feelings about a single image or idea. Written in musical language.
Figurative Language Simile - comparison of 2 unlike things using like or as. Example: she sang like an angel Metaphor - a comparison between 2 or more seemingly unrelated subjects that typically uses the phrase "is a" to join the first objects. Example: that dog is a wet mop! Hyperbole - exaggeration meant to produce a particular effect. Example: the guard was twelve feet tall with muscles of steel Personification - Giving human characteristics to nonhuman subjects. Example: the washing machine danced across the floor
o Onomatopoeia – a word that imitates a sound Example: roar, buzz, meow o Alliteration – the repletion of consonant sounds at the beginning of words that are located closely together Example: Sally sells seashells by the seashore. o Allusion – a statement that hints at something instead of being direct. Example: I’m surprised his nose was not growing like Pinocchio's! When it comes to giving “A’s”, that teacher is a Scrooge!
