hahahaha Earthmomma - you crack me up!!!! Big Grin
Thanks, Julie! For those who slept through 10th grade lit, ontomatopeia and alliteration are two leading style characteristics of Poe's poetry. Kind of an inside fun time between George and me and the rest who did not sleep through 10th grade lit!

While I pondered weak and weary......

E.A.Poe is one of my favorite writers. Smiler


Did anyone else have to memorize and resite this in the seventh (maybe eighth) grade? We also had to learn the Gettysburg address and the preamble to the Constitution. Yikes, flashbacks of middle school...causing...brain to...repress...augghhh
I was that nerdy kid who memorized Poe before I was ever told to. I also knew the preamble but being a good Confederate, I didn't want to memorize the Gettysburg addy. (LOL I have relatives who fought on both sides. Been doing some research and found I had a relative in the 1st AL Cavalry - they were a southern unit who fought for the north. Sherman's body guards. Mad There's a black sheep in every family.)

Hear the tolling of the bells--
Iron bells!
What a world of solemn thought their monody compels!
In the silence of the night,
How we shiver with affright
At the melancholy meaning of their tone!
For every sound that floats
From the rust within their throats
Is a groan.

Onomotopoeia, every time I see ya... (Todd Rundgren)

Okay, earthmomma, I'll buy you lunch--think I owe you one promised from Christmas. "Alluring Alice, etc.," actually isn't alliteration. It's assonance. "Beautiful Beatrice" would be alliteration. Assonance refers to words beginning with vowels.

Of course when we get into poetry, as in Poe, the sounds can come in the middle of the words and not at the beginning.

There will be a test later, but only for "Salsa Babe."

I assure you, I will bring my entire 'personality' with me! Freakin' Moron.


Well the fair is over. I don't remember anyone coming by identifying themselves as Freakin' Moron, but "Maggie" I would have given you that free reading is you showed up. Another time.
