Lesson 4: Owen’s Skill

Analysing Techniques

To truly understand poetry, you must understand its truth – the beauty of the passion behind it. The techniques are merely the vessel with which this truth is expressed. When you analyse the techniques, you are looking at HOW they create meaning. What is the power behind them – what is its effect on us?

  • Use the P.E.E. structure

Evidence: Choose the Quote and identify the technique being used

Effect: How does it effect us as the responder? How do we feel? Are we challenged? Shocked? Saddened? Empathetic? Horrified? What do we learn? Understand? New insights?
