Host Series Class: Poetry with Elisabeth

The third in this series: Rhetorical Figures of Speech — Wednesday October 19, 6:30-8:30 pm

Discover and name handy tips and tricks of the trade that are thousands of years old, and which you may already use unknowingly–including polyptoton, antithesis, merism, blazon & contreblazon, synaesthesia, aposiopesis, hyperbaton, anadiplosis, diacope, and periodic sentences. Whereas the use of these techniques is often cited in prose (especially in speeches), we’ll look at strong examples from poetry. We’ll also try out some writing and revision prompts, with an option to share with the group.
