Complete poetry packet
Things to remember as you complete your packet, plus some HINTS:
"Type of poem" = narrative, lyric, dramatic. Review those terms.
Number 10 is difficult because we can't be sure of the pronunciation or number of syllables since it's a different language. Here is the ANSWER!! Copy this down in your packet for number 10. If you don't, you'll lose the points when we grade tomorrow!
#10: The poem is written in Elvish. The meter is iambic tetrameter and the rhyme scheme is aababcc
**Be sure to FINISH #11. We've already done the rhyme scheme, but you need to answer the other questions. Here's a hint: one of the questions is "does this poem seem different from the other hobbit poems?" To answer that, go back to the beginning of the novel and look at other hobbit poems and songs. What are hobbit songs USUALLY about? Is that the same or different than what THIS poem is about?
Number 12: Don't draw the double lines in the book, of course, but I do need to see your work here. Make a copy of the poem, either by hand, or by printing a copy.
NO new video! I decided I didn't need to get you any new information at the moment. HOWEVER, if you haven't watched the poetry video I made earlier (or if you need a refresher, it has been a while since we've talked about poetry), OR the Lit Circle Rubric video, please do so.
