    • Poetic Devices and the Five Senses Week One - Tuesday
    • Use of language
      • Poets often try to use language to make the reader see images. Poets also use language to try and reach the other senses.
      • Poetic language can make a feel all five of the human senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing.
    • Sight
      • Trying to evoke images is the most common appeal to the senses.
      • The hillside lush green grass waved silently in the soft evening breeze.

      • Grandmother's warm kitchen smelled of sweet cookies, set to cool.
