  • Analyzing Poetry
  • TEKS ELA 4.3A  (3) Reading/Comprehension of Literary Text/Poetry. Students understand, make inferences and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of poetry and provide evidence from text to support their understanding. Students are expected to analyze the effects of metrics, rhyme schemes (e.g., end, internal, slant, eye), and other conventions in American poetry.
  • Objective  We will analyze poetry in terms of the effects of metrics and rhyme schemes.
  • Product  I will show examples of meter and rhyme scheme from the text provided.
  • How does rhythm contribute to meaning and beauty of a poem?  Scanning a poem and identifying the meter, stanza, and rhyme scheme are only the first steps in analyzing its rhythm. The most important part of the analysis is explaining how this rhythm contributes to the meaning, beauty, and significance of the poem.
  • Start with breaking the words into syllables, mark the stressed and unstressed syllables, and identify the most common type of metric unit (“foot”); determine whether the poem uses a “rising” or “falling” rhythm.
  • Rising meters are predominantly iambic or anapestic: iamb: 2 syllables (unstressed, stressed): to-day. anapest: 3 syllables (unstressed, unstressed, stressed): in-ter-vene. Falling meters are predominantly trochaic or dactylic: trochee: 2 syllables (stressed, unstressed): dai-ly. dactyl: 3 syllables (stressed, unstressed, unstressed): yes-ter-day.
  • Enjoy analyzing poetry!
