Exercises to Help You Learn Poetry
The following are a couple of exercises that will assist you with learning verse:
Assemble a Collection:
I have thought that it is hard to track down verse that truly impacts me, so I frequently save the sonnets that I like. You can print them out in case they're accessible on the web, or you can snap a picture of them assuming they're in a book and print the photograph. You can even interpret them yourself. You can take help from online poetry classes. I like to save paper, so rather than printing, I keep a record brimming with most loved sonnets on my PC. The thought is to examine heaps of verse and figure out how to keep the sonnets you like best in an individual assortment that you can return to.
Study and Analyze Poetry:
When you have an assortment of sonnets that you find convincing, pick a sonnet to consider. Peruse it a few times, and read it out loud. Work it out in longhand (or type it), so you can concentrate on it very closely. Then, at that point, recorded as a hard copy, answer the accompanying inquiries:
- How many lines and verses does the sonnet have?
- How numerous syllables are in each line?
- Is it written in structure or free section?
- How did the writer settle on word decisions?
- What is the sonnet about?
- What do you like with regards to it?
- Is there whatever might be improved?
Analyzing verse at this level will show you the methods that artists use to make the sort of sonnets that interest you.
- Make a Learning Tool:
The inquiries above give a decent beginning to learning verse, yet there are significantly more inquiries that you can investigate. Keep a running rundown of inquiries that will assist you with learning verse questions that you can utilize both as a peruser and author of sonnets. You don't need to examine and investigate each sonnet that you read — now and then you ought to simply unwind and appreciate the verse. In any case, when you're prepared to quit fooling around with learning, your rundown of inquiries will prove to be useful.
- Discover Form:
Pick a verse structure, like piece, haiku, or pantoum. Print out (or record) the rules of the structure, and afterward discover three sonnets in that structure. Peruse every one no less than multiple times, really looking at it contrary to the rules. At long last, compose your own sonnet in that structure.
- Take a gander at the Poet:
At the point when we assess workmanship, we ought to assess the craftsmanship, not the craftsman. As journalists, when somebody gives an unforgiving analysis of our work, we should make an effort not to think about it literally — they are passing judgment on our work, not us. Yet, inspecting the existence of a writer can sometimes loan more prominent knowledge to their work. A writer brings to the page their own encounters and viewpoints of the world.
- Free Yourself
Find something like three sonnets written in the free section. Print them out. Feature any rhymes, similar sounding word usage, or different gadgets that give the sonnet musicality. Study the sonnets by pursuing them a few times. Peruse them so anyone might hear. Work them out in longhand. Then, at that point, compose a concise 250-word paper depicting free section verse. At last, compose a free-section sonnet.
