Petals on a wet, black bough
Pound’s 3 “Made-Up” Terms
The three things that writing must adhere to:
• MELOPOEIA : The sound
• LOGOPOEIA: The logic

Melopoeia
any elements that contribute to sound

Cacophony (harsh, discordant sounds)
Euphony (soothing pleasant sounds)
•
Rhythm
•
Rhyme
•
Assonance
•
Consonance

(foot/meter)
(end rhyme/ internal rhyme/
rhyme scheme)
("Do you like blue?", the
"oo" sound is repeated)
(All mammals named Sam
are clammy - repetition of consonant sounds
within the words)
sound?)
(sally sells seashells)
Logopoeia
What is the form? Why?
What does it mean?
• The Content (what it’s
all about. The meaning behind
the words)
• The Form (stanzas, lines,
paragraphs, poem, essay, short
story, novel, etc)
• The Author’s
Purpose
• The Intended
Audience
Phanopoeia
It’s nearly impossible to write without imagery.
Two Kinds of Image:
1.Figurative
One thing is said while
something else is meant
&
2. Literal
Phanopoeia
1. Figurative
• Simile: He is as big as
a mountain
• Metaphor: He is a
mountain
• Personification: The
ancient car groaned into third
gear
Phanopoeia
2. Literal

The Literal Visual Image
Sight
Shall I say, I have gone at
dusk through narrow streets
And watched the smoke that
rises from the pipes
Of lonely men in shirt-sleeves,
leaning out of windows?…
The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
by T.S. Eliot
The Literal Auditory Image
Sound
If you could hear, at
every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from
the froth-corrupted
lungs
From Dulce Et Decorum
Est
by Wilfred Owen
The Literal Olfactory Image
Smell
• When I breathe into
my hand I smell
oranges.
• all powdered sugar
and honey in
the glazed caramel air
by Ronald Wallace
The Literal Tactile Image
Touch
Your nose would be a source of
dread
were it attached atop your head,
it soon would drive you to despair,
forever tickled by your hair.
From Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face
by Jack Prelutsky
The Literal Gustatory Image
Taste
Glowing wine on his palate lingered swallowed. Crushing
in the winepress grapes of Burgundy. Sun's heat it is.
Seems to a secret touch telling me memory. Touched
his sense moistened remembered. Hidden under wild
ferns on Howth below us bay sleeping: sky. No sound.
The sky...full lips full open, kissed her mouth. Yum.
Softly she gave me in my mouth the seedcake warm and
chewed. Mawkish pulp her mouth had mumbled
sweetsour of her spittle. Joy: I ate it: joy.
From Ulysses Chapter 8 (The Lestrygonians) By James Joyce
The Organic Image
heartbeat, pulse, breathing, digestion
More happy love! more happy, happy
love!
For ever warm and still to be enjoy'd,
For ever panting, and for ever young;
All breathing human passion far above,
That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and
cloy'd,
A burning forehead, and a parching
tongue.
from Ode on a Grecian Urn
-Keats
The Literal Kinesthetic Image
muscle tension and movement
O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had
stood before;
When will return the glory of your
prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
From A Lament
by Shelley
