Poem:
Full fathom five thy father lies.
Of his bones are coral made
Those are pearls that were his eyes
Nothing of him that Doth fade
But doth suffer a sea change
Into something rich and strange
See names hourly ring his knell
Ding dong. Hark! Now I hear them ding dong bell.

  2. I don't understand how the alliteration helps. The alliteration is Full Fathom Five Thy Father Lies, but I don't understand how that helps. I also can't find another example.

  3. I see a line in which s's are repeated.

    I see another line in which d's are repeated.

    If you read this OUT LOUD, you'll hear what the poet intended you to hear and understand.

  6. Where else in the poem is there repetition of words that begin with the same consonant? And what does repetition of a sound add to the tone of the poem? Finality, infinity, or what does it "feel" like to you?

  15. First and foremost, we need to understand what alliteration. Within this unit you have learned that alliteration is a figure a speech in which the same sound appears at the beginning of two or more words. Alliteration uses alliterative sounds that create your rhythm and mood of the particular poem or part of literature you are reading at the time, alliteration also grabs the reader’s attention and makes them focus or convey an idea or an emotion. A poet can use this knowledge and create what William Shakespeare has created and make their poems strong. (not saying that you absolutely need alliteration to create a strong poem). I hope this helps anyone out.

    The directions above say to think about the where the poem is set and what particular ideas and objects are being describe. Since this I decided to draw conclusions about this first. The poem is about a dead father whose body turns into a piece of art after his death making the sea richer and more beautiful than before. His bones get transformed into coral and his eyes turn into pearls. The mood of the poem is, thus, sad and dark.
    William Shakespeare uses alliteration in his poem “Full Fathom Five” to help convey the particular atmosphere of the poem. He does this by repeating the F sound in the line “Full fathom five thy father lies” and repeating the S sound in the lines “but doth suffer a sea-change, Into something rich and strange, Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell.” Using alliteration such as the examples above helped William Shakespeare to convey the atmosphere of his poem by just that, repeating particular sounds. This makes the reader rethink the particular rhyming of words and create the mood or tone of a poem, which then creates the atmosphere of the poem, they go hand in hand. The mood of the poem is sad and dark therefore the particular alliteration that Shakespeare uses not only portrays this but also portrays the saddened and gloomy atmosphere. This is how alliteration helps any poet convey the atmosphere of their poems.

  20. Ms. Sue is just another kid who thinks she can help everyone when she doesn't even know half of the answers people come here for. Shes just another stuck up person who thinks shes better than everyone. Any REAL teacher would NOT treat students the way she does. A real teacher would lose their job if they treated students the way she does. She deserves NO respect, she has no right to be treating people the way she does and id like her to say it to my face if she can hide behind a keyboard and say it. Cause I promise you I'm not scared. But its not right the way she treats students when she doesn't know what goes on in other peoples lives so she could be hurting more than helping.
