5 True/False questions
Free Verse → Poetry that does not have a regular meter or rhyme scheme. Poets writing in free verse try to capture the natural rhythms of ordinary speech. To create musical effects, they may use alliteration, assonance, internal rhyme, and onomatopoeia. They also often repeat words or grammatical structures.
Lyric Poetry → Poetry that expresses a speaker's emotions or thoughts and does not tell a story.
Rhyme → The way an author chooses words, arranges them in sentences or in lines of dialogue or verse, and develops ideas and actions with descriptions, imagery, and other literary techniques.
Irony → Contrast or discrepancy between expectation and reality. In verbal irony a speaker says one thing but means the opposite. In situational irony what actually happens is the opposite of what is expected or appropriate. Dramatic irony occurs when the reader or the audience knows something important that a character does not know.
Refrain → Repeated word, phrase, line, or group of lines. Though refrains are usually associated with poetry and songs, they are sometimes used in prose especially in speeches. Refrains create rhythm and may also build suspense or emphasize important words or ideas.
