Understanding poetic devices, motifs, and themes in a text provides students with a deeper and more complete understanding of the text and the author’s purpose in writing it. With this worksheet, students will identify and analyze poetic devices used in key passages in the text. While the worksheet requires students to analyze specific passages, you can extend this activity asking students to do the same analysis with passages they choose themselves or that you assign.
