TPCASTT - Mrs. Burhenn's Sophomore English

TPCASTT Mrs. Burhenn What is TPCASTT? This is an anagram to analyze poetry, much like DIDLS is an anagram to analyze tone. You will use this (and DIDLS) in your AP classes, so the more practice the better! Title

Paraphrase Connotation Attitude Shift Title revisited Theme Title First things first. Read the title,

and think what the poem might be about. Paraphrase Before you try to read deeply into the poem, you must first look at the literal meaning. Break the poem up into manageable chunks and

paraphrase each chunk. This is not a summary; this is writing the poem in your own words. Connotation This is where you begin to look beyond the surface. Look for poetic devices such as

imagery, metaphors, personification, symbolism, diction, point of view, sound devices It is not necessary to identify all poetic devices, but make sure the ones you do identify support any conclusions made about the poem. Attitude The

authors or speakers tone in the poem is important. Remember: To misunderstand tone is to misunderstand meaning. Remember DIDLS Shift Most poetry will have a shift, much

like the poets realization of understanding of an experience Watch for the following cues: Words such as: but, yet, however, etc. Punctuation Stanza divisions Changes in stanza or line length, diction, sound devices Title Revisited Now

that you have looked at the poem on a deeper level, look at the title again. Does it hold a different meaning than it once did? Theme What is the poem saying about

the overall human experience, motivation, or condition? What idea does the poet want you to take with you? A theme cannot be stated in one word; it is a not just a subject, but a theory or idea about that subject.
