This glossary of poetic and literary terms contains over 60 of the concepts students encounter most as they read, think about, and write about literature, poetry and otherwise. There are copious examples provided. I divide the terms into categories that have served me well in teaching English literature, chiefly terms relating to sound, meaning, structure, and imagery.
From common terms like allusion and antithesis to slightly more sophisticated ideas like metonymy and anaphora, you will find just about every term you need to teach in this comprehensive booklet. Great as a reference, as a handout to accompany your lectures, or as a study guide, and suitable for upper-secondary and even adult education.
This document is in Word, so you can edit it. For a little less money, you can get a nice .pdf of all seven pages -- but not editable. Check my listings for this "locked" but cheaper version.
Note: I will post updates when they are available; feel free to send suggestions (or corrections).
