Poetry plays with meaning when it identifies resemblances or makes comparisons between things. In this way, poetry deals with particular things in concrete language because our emotions respond best to these things.

In this lesson, students will be introduced to literary role models, performers, and writing craft techniques that discuss meaning in poetry. This lesson includes an overview of the elements of poetry and offers students a way to learn how to use these elements by implementing them in their own writing.
