Learning to Understand Poetry
Helping High-School Students Appreciate Literature in Verse

High-school students are often intimidated by poetry. Often, their dislike is the result of a lack of knowledge. Many students simply don't know how to handle poetry.

However, students can, with little difficulty, begin to appreciate poetry. They simply need to be taught the basic structures and techniques that underlie this form of literature.

Begin by showing the student the overarching structure of the poem. Most poems are separated into stanzas. Many students may not even understand the concept of a stanza, so this is a great place to begin. Introduce a stanza as a group of lines connected in some way, normally by rhyme scheme or theme.

Next, help your student to understand the poem’s rhythm. Most English poetry is written in iambic pentameter. Iambic rhythm consists of a short syllable followed by a long syllable. Pentameter simply means that there are five iambs per line. The first line in William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 provides a wonderful example of iambic pentameter: Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

In this sentence, the emphasis is on the second, fourth, sixth, eighth, and tenth syllables while the first, third, fifth, seventh, and ninth syllables are unaccented. The same pattern is utilized for the rest of the poem.

Rhyme Scheme
It is also important to teach high-school students to interpret rhyme schemes. Although not all poems utilize rhyming lines, many, especially those of the Elizabethan and Restoration periods, do. Students need to be taught to associate a letter to each individual line-end sound. The rhyme scheme of Sonnet 18, for instance, can be described as abab cdcd efef gg.

Even poems whose line endings do not rhyme utilize other sorts of rhymes, such as alliteration and onomatopoeia. Students should be taught to appreciate the sounds created by such rhyme within a poem’s lines. These sounds provide the poem with continuity and often reflect the mood or theme of the poem.

Techniques to Understand Message
Teach your student to recognize the methods by which a poem’s message is conveyed. Metaphor and simile are terms easily understood. Most students will quickly be able to recognize these within a poem. Personification is another commonly used technique in poetry. As your students learn to recognize these techniques at work, they will quickly begin to enjoy, or at least understand, poetry.

Poetry does not have to be painful. It can be taught in an enjoyable way. Students will learn to love this timeless form of literature once they are able to grasp its basic workings. One helpful resource for poetry is essay help on Once students know what to search for in a poem, they will begin to truly appreciate the beauty contained in its lines.
