I just wanted to see what everyone's favorite poetic device or combination of poetic devices was.
· Which do you feel is more effective?
· Which induces the most thoughts?
· Which do you most enjoy using?
· Which do you feel gets your point across the best?
I think my favorite device is metaphor, just because it's always interesting to see how totally different things can tie into each other in so many ways. Also, it seems to be the most used, so it must be the most effective and the most thought-provoking, right? I'd say it's my favorite to use, but to be honest, I can't really think of a whole lot of other poetic devices right off the top of my head. I guess I'd have to say metaphor gets the point across best, but sometimes something like alliteration or internal rhyme is needed to make the poem flow/grab readers' attention.
I also like metaphor. It can be a very good way to attatch two totallyh different things to one another and make the reader really think about what they are reading. Thanks for your reply!
I like Metaphore, and consonance and alleteration is pretty cool. Meter, too.. I dont know the names fo rmany devicesI use, but I like to read a poem and puzzle out whereand air or an effectcame from. I noticed something about lines and their lenght, for example. I noticed that two lon glines put together is more sutible oftentimes when you try and give a highflow, majestic or regal tone. Long followedby shor can, if paired with the riht words, strike me as a declaration, an important pronouncment. Two super short together often have the effect, again, when paired with the right words, of havin ga rushed, breathless feel. Of fast paced events or an anxious speaker. There are more effects line lenghts tend to have, many i still jeed to puzzle out.
