Figurative Language

J: Figurative Language 1. Choose one of the three poems from this lesson: “Quinceanera, “Do not go gentle…” “Harlem,” or “Marks” 2. Re-read the poem and consider its use of figurative language, and its theme. What idea or statement is this poem trying to send to its readers? 3. Answer these questions in a one-to-two paragraph response. Write a cohesive paragraph rather than a list. There are no formatting requirements, and since you’re only using one poem, no citation requirements. Do not consult outside sources. Type into the text box, or copy and paste into the text box; do not attach a document.  You are encouraged to quote from the poem (be sure to integrate the quotes into your own sentences), and you can also embed an image if you would like to create or find one that you think reflects the poem’s meaning. The “Insert/Edit Image” button in the menu about (it has a mountain and sun) will enable you to add an image to your entry. Again, don’t attach a separate file.  a. What use of figurative language stands out the most to you in this poem? b. What type of figurative language is it? c. What meaning is conveyed by the figurative language? d. Why do you think the author use figurative language, rather than stating something literally? e. How does this use of figurative language relate to or emphasize the theme of the poem?  Read and consider these poems: from the textbook “The Norton Introduction to Literature SHORTER 13TH EDITION Kelly J. Mays” “Marks by Linda Pastan (871) “Do not go gentle into that good night” by Dylan Thomas (page 955) “Harlem” by Langston Hughes (page 1073)  Poem: Quinceanera This link directs to the poem “Quincenera” by Judith Cofer Ortiz.   Notes: Figurative Language Attached Files:  Notes -Figures of Speech.pdf (1.18 MB)  Notes -Figures of Speech.pptx (623.573 KB) These notes (available as .pdf and as a PowerPoint) discuss why poets use figurative language, what readers should do when they read it in a poem, and the types of figurative language most often used. There are also a number of examples of figurative language here
