Transcript

  • 1.
  • 2. Enjambment: A poetic device
    The Write Stuff
  • 3. I need to know “Enjambment!”
    Enjambment is when a sentence “runs over” into the next line in poetry.
    Think of a traffic jam.
  • 4. When reading, look for…
    Punctuation (periods, question marks) in the MIDDLE of a line.
    No punctuation at the end.
    Beware of commas.
  • 5.  
    Don't think I haven't changed. Who said
    absence makes the heart grow fonder?Though I watch the sunset reddenevery day, days don't grow longer.There are many kinds of silence,none more radiant than the sun's.Sun is silent in our presence,unlike love, silent when it's gone.I thought that every spring was you,every blossom, every bud;that summer had little to dobut follow, singing in my blood.How wrong I was. What had summerto do with sorrow in full spate?Every rosebush, every flowerI passed, stood at a stranger's gate.
    Example:Don't Ask me. Love, for that First Love.Mimi Khalvati
  • 6. Example: No enjambment
    New tech is great!
    I won’t be late.
    Or else I’ll need a pass.
    To get into class.
    Miss Coleman will lock me out.
    Dude, what’s that about?
    I feel so DEAD.
    Math hurts my head.
    I totally hate Kelly Green.
    Whoever made these shirts is mean.
    But I’m still happy I’m on the team.
    What is the difference in the sound and feeling of the poem?
