Links to Literary Terms

I had a very good question today about how to know which terms to identify.  Given the snow, we haven't gone over as many of the literary terms and techniques as I would have liked, so I've included a list here of useful websites for literary terms.  As the semester progresses, I will focus in on the literary terms which I find the most important, but you may discover that additional terms are needed to describe the works from The Hopkins Review.
Ten Essential Poetic Techniques from a Middle School Lesson Plan
It's likely you're already familiar with these terms, but it's a good idea to review these.  Good definitions and examples are provided for Simile, Metaphor, Personification, Hyperbole, Alliteration, Assonance, Consonance, Onomatopoeia, Repetition, and Rhyme (Internal Rhyme and End Rhyme).
McGraw-Hill offers some very complete lists literary terms.  I recommend reading over the poetry glossary for Friday's essay, and then referring to the other glossaries throughout the course.
Drama Glossary (note that many of these terms are applicable to fiction and poetry)
Poets.org provides an overview of the different kinds of poems (the large-scale forms which encompass regular patterns of meter, rhyme, and stanza lengths) along with their own glossary of poetic terms.
Poetic Forms
Glossary of Poetic Terms
The University of Richmond Writing Center also provides a list of 32 general terms applicable to both poetry and fiction:
"A List of Important Literary Terms"
If you have any questions about specific literary terms or their applicability to a given work, please let me know.

Have a good day,
Ryan
