In this worksheet, students will revise poetic techniques.

Worksheet Overview

This activity will help us to prepare for poetry analysis and also help us to revise key poetic terms.


What techniques make a poem particularly powerful?

How does the structure or rhyme pattern of a poem help convey ideas the poet wishes to reinforce to the reader?

By the end of this activity, we should be able to answer these questions.


We will also be able to better analyse poetry in exams and, enrich our own style of writing. Win, win!


You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples. These quotations are for reference only.
