Posts Tagged ‘poetic devices’

This was supposed to be S15’s lesson today but some things came up and Mr. Shafie conducted a rather interesting lesson on puns, dontcha think?

There are some hyperlinks in the slides. Do click on them to watch some videos that would explain the concepts of poetic devices better.

Here is the list of videos in case you are confused by the slides:
Personification in Songs
Alliteration in V for Vendetta
Rhyme in Vincent
Repetition in Green Eggs and Ham

Practise on your own. Identify the poetic devices (similes, metaphors, personification, alliteration and rhyme and repetition) in these examples:
Will.I.Am’s Yes We Can
Rihanna’s Umbrella
OneRepublic’s Stop and Stare
