    • READING AND ENJOYING POETRY The TP-CSATT Analysis Method
    • Title
      • Ponder the title before reading the poem.
      • If there are any unfamiliar words in the title, look them up in a dictionary

    • Paraphrase
      • Translate the poem into your own words.
      • Re-write the plot of the poem in your own words, key in on the literal meaning. Frequently, real understanding of a poem must evolve from comprehension of “what’s going on in the poem.”

    • Connotation
      • Contemplate the poem for meaning beyond the literal.
      • Here you must consider figurative language (simile, metaphor, personification, etc.), symbolism, diction, point of view, and sound devices (alliteration, onomatopoeia, rhythm and rhyme).

    • Attitude
      • Observe both the speaker’s and poet’s attitude (TONE)
      • Having examined the poem’s devices and clues closely, you are now ready to explore the multiple attitudes that may be present in the poem.

    • Shifts
      • Note shifts in speakers and attitudes.
      • Watch for the following:
      • Key words (but, yet, however, although)
      • Punctuation (dashes, periods, colons, ellipsis)
      • Stanza divisions
      • Changes in line or stanza length or both
      • Irony (sometimes irony hides shifts)
      • Effect of Structure on meaning
      • Changes in sound that may indicate changes in meaning
      • Changes in diction (slang to formal language)

    • Title
      • Examine the title again, this time on an interpretive level.

    • Theme
      • Determine what the poet is saying.
      • In identifying theme, you will want to consider the human experience, motivation, or condition suggested by the poem. Follow the steps for determining theme from Lit Terms IV.
