POETRY--PART ONE, "A WAY OF SAYING," PART TWO, "SEARCH FOR ORDER." LITERATURE CURRICULUM V, TEACHER AND STUDENT VERSIONS.
KITZHABER, ALBERT R.
THIS POETRY UNIT FOR 11TH-GRADERS ILLUSTRATES HOW VERSE STRUCTURE AND POETIC TECHNIQUES CONTRIBUTE TO A POEM'S MEANING. IN PART 1, IMAGERY, METAPHOR, SYMBOLISM, IRONY, PARADOX, AND MUSICAL AND RHYTHMICAL SOUND PATTERNS ARE DISCUSSED AS WAYS OF SAYING THE "UNSAYABLE" AND OF REINFORCING THE MEANING AND MOOD OF THE POEM. THE POEMS OF SUCH ARTIST-CRAFTSMEN AS DONNE, HOUSMAN, DICKINSON, AND HOPKINS ARE USED TO CLARIFY THESE POETIC DEVICES. PART 2 IS DESIGNED TO BROADEN STUDENT UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THE SEPARATE POETIC DEVICES WORK TOGETHER WITH THE CONTENT OF THE POEM TO MAKE A WORK OF ART. SOME OF THE LYRIC POEMS OF DONNE AND BLAKE, THE SONNETS OF SHAKESPEARE, AUDEN, AND WORDSWORTH, AND THE DRAMATIC MONOLOGUES OF BROWNING, TENNYSON, AND ELIOT ARE REPRINTED TO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH EXPERIENCE IN ANALYZING POETRY. AN EXPLICATION AND INDUCTIVE QUESTIONS ACCOMPANY EACH POEM. TWO TESTS DESIGNED FOR THIS UNIT ARE APPENDED. SEE ALSO ED 010 129 THROUGH ED 010 160, ED 010 803 THROUGH ED 010 832, TE 000 195 THROUGH TE 000 220, AND TE 000 227 THROUGH TE 000 249. (JB)
