Transcript of "Romantic poetry"

  1. 1. Romantic Poetry<br />
  2. 2. Some famous romance poets….<br />The most famous writer about love and romance was probably William Shakespeare. <br />He wrote 154 sonnets and they are still very famous today. <br />
  3. 3. Shakespeare Sonnet 18<br />Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate:Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer's lease hath all too short a date: Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; And every fair from fair sometime declines,By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;But thy eternal summer shall not fadeNor lose possession of that fair thou owest;Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,When in eternal lines to time thou growest: So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,So long lives this and this gives life to thee.<br />
  4. 4. Simile and Metaphor<br />To make a story or a poem more interesting, a writer often tries to use words to create a picture inside the reader’s head. <br />Using similes and metaphors is a good way to help the reader’s imagination.<br />
  5. 5. Similes<br />Similes compare 2 different things using “like” or “as.”<br />For example: <br />“As cold as ice”<br />“Eats like a pig”<br />“As light as a feather”<br />“Swims like a fish”<br />
  6. 6. Metaphors<br />A metaphor creates an even stronger picture in the reader’s head. <br />Metaphors compare 2 different things but do NOT use the words “like” or “as.”<br />For example: <br />“She has a heart of a lion.”<br />“Her hair is silk.”<br />
  7. 7. Simile or Metaphor????<br />The baby was like an octopus, grabbing at all the cans on the grocery store shelves. <br />As the teacher entered the room she muttered under her breath, "This class is like a three-ring circus!"<br />The giant’s steps were thunder as he ran toward Jack.<br />The pillow was a cloud when I put my head upon it after a long day.<br />
  8. 8. Simile or Metaphor????<br />I feel like a limp dishrag.<br />Those girls are like two peas in a pod.<br />The fluorescent light was the sun during our test.<br />No one invites Harold to parties because he’s a wet blanket.<br />The bar of soap was a slippery eel during the dog’s bath.<br />Ted was as nervous as a cat with a long tail in a room full of rocking chairs.<br />
