    Different Types Of Poetry Different Types Of Poetry Presentation Transcript

    • Different Types of Poetry
    • Poetry has been around for ever…
      Some of our greatest works of poetry came from centuries ago.
      The first female poet, Anne Bradstreet published her work in 1650, and was best known for her poem “The Prologue”
      Baym, Nina. The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Seventh Edition: Volume A Beginnings to 1820. New York: W. W. Norton, 2007. Print.
    • Before we begin, here are a few simple rules
      Poetry don’t ALWAYS have to rhyme.
      There is no rule to how short or long a poem has to be.
      Poems can be published, spoken, sang, or read
      Have fun, and let your soul free on paper!
    • Which poems will you learn about?
      Although there are millions of different types of poetry, today you will learn about five easy types.
      Romanticism
      Acrostic
      Cinquain
      Bio
    • Romanticism
      Romanticism poems aren’t usually about love. Usually they talk about more gothic centered things, such as dungeons, dragons, etc.
      Edgar Allan Poe was a great romanticism poet, and was famous for “The Raven”
      Baym, Nina. The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Seventh Edition: Volume A Beginnings to 1820. New York: W. W. Norton, 2007. Print.
    • Example from “The Raven”
      Then into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
      Soon I heard again a tapping somewhat louder than before.
      “Surley,” said I, “surley that is something at my window lattice;
      Let me see, then what thereat is, and this mystery explore-
      Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;-
      Tis the wind, and nothing more!”
    • Acrostic
      Acrostic poems are more fun to write, and less serious.
      An acrostic poem uses the letters in a word to begin the first line of a poem.
      The goal is to get the lines to relate to the main topic.
      "Acrostic Poems - ReadWriteThink." Homepage - ReadWriteThink. Web. 02 Mar. 2010. <http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/student-interactives/acrostic-poems-30045.html>.
    • Try to make an acrostic poem on your own!
      Think of a topic (sun for example)
      Write it vertically down your page
      Now, think of words starting with S to describe the sun. (Shiny for example)
      Now think of words starting with U to describe the sun (Use sunscreen for example)
      Finally think of words starting with N to describe the sun (Nice and warm)
      You can try to make your own with the website below

    • Cinquain
      A cinquain poem starts off with a topic.
      Within this poem, you have to think of a certain number of syllables per line, in order to make it sound wavy.
      It has five lines.
      The pattern is-two syllables, four, six, eight, and back to two.
      "Composing Cinquain Poems: A Quick-Writing Activity - ReadWriteThink." Homepage - ReadWriteThink. Web. 02 Mar. 2010. <http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/composing-cinquain-poems-quick-51.html>.
    • An example of a cinquain
      Ashley (2)
      very funny (4)
      likes to dance and hangout (6)
      misses her family at home (8)
      brown hair (2)
    • Bio Poetry
      Bio poetry is as simple as it sounds. It is a poem written about a certain person, their feelings, hopes, personality, and aspirations.
      These can be used in the beginning of a book, for poetry, or just for yourself!
      Probably the simplest form of poetry merely because it is all about you, and has no rules.
    • In review…
      Poems are exactly what you make of them, and what you want them to be.
      Poems can be sad, happy, angry, or even random.
      Length, and rhyme don’t usually matter.
      Poems are a great way to help you learn about yourself and your writing skills.
