Hemrick Unit 7 completion assignments

  1. 1. Unit 7 Completion assignments<br />Poetry<br />
  2. 2. Unit 7 Completion Assignments<br />In the first assignment, you will be learning about an Arabic form of poetry called the Ghazal.<br />You will look at two Ghazal poems. The first will have notes for you explaining the poem. <br />The second poem is the one that you will use in the first completion assignment.<br />You will pick out your favorite couplet – you will write a three sentence explanation of the following posting you response to our class “Ghazal blog”.<br />Why you like the couplet you have chosen.<br />What you think it means.<br />Why you think it is important to understanding the rest of the poem. <br />
  3. 3. Unit 7 Completion Assignments<br />In the next completion assignment, you will be studying lyric poetry.<br />You will be using the TPCASTT method to analyze a lyric poem in this assignment. <br />The poem that you will be analyzing is ‘The Guitar”.<br />Make sure that you read the background information – gypsy population – flamenco music.<br />
  4. 4. Unit 7 Completion assignments<br />The Guitar<br />Now begins the cry <br />    Of the guitar, <br />    Breaking the vaults <br />    Of dawn. <br />5   Now begins the cry <br />    Of the guitar. <br />    Useless <br />    To still it. <br />    Impossible <br />10 To still it. <br />     It weeps monotonously <br />    As weeps the water, <br />    As weeps the wind <br />    Over snow. <br />15 Impossible <br />    To still it. <br />    It weeps <br />    For distant things, <br />    Warm southern sands <br />20 Desiring white camellias<br />    It mourns the arrow without a target, <br />    The evening without morning, <br />    And the first bird dead <br />    Upon a branch. <br />25 O guitar! <br />    A wounded heart, <br />    Wounded by five swords. <br />
  5. 5. Unit 7 completion assignments<br />Title - “the guitar” is a poem about music. <br />Paraphrase – rewrite the poem in your own words.<br />Connotation – this is where you analyze the figures of speech and sound effects of the poem. Alliteration – repetition of consonant sounds (w).<br />Attitude – tone – the attitude of the speaker toward the subject of the poem -gloomy and dark.<br />Shift – is there a change in time, tone, speaker<br />Title – rethink the title – did your analysis change?<br />Theme – the general insight into life conveyed by the author through his/her work.<br />
  6. 6. Unit 7 Completion assignments<br />In the last completion assignment, you will take a short assessment.<br />The cry of the guitar begins at dawn – refer back to line 4.<br />The guitar continues to weep or cry because no one seems to be capable of stopping the guitar from crying.<br />The denotation (dictionary definition) of the word monotonous is that it remains the same – it does not vary.<br />In lines 20 – 21 you will see what the guitar cries for – things that are far off.<br />Hot southern sands yearning for white camellias (a type of flower).<br />It mourns the arrow without target – no purpose <br />Heart wounded by five swords – swords is a metaphor (comparison) for five fingers<br />
  7. 7. Unit 7 completion assignments<br />The overall mood of the poem could be described as not very happy.<br />By using repetition of words, the author creates a rhythm in the poem.<br />This poem is considered to be a free verse poem because it does not have any specific meter or rhyme scheme.<br />
