Poetry Terms Review

This is for all you people out there who have to memorize poetry terms for the AP English Literature test. I have to fit one hundred and fifty characters into this box, but I can't think of anything else I want to tell you.

You've memorized the definitions, but can you put them into action? Again, for some reason, one hundred and fifty characters are required here, and I keep getting annoying, red error messages saying I don't have enough.
