Figurative Language with Taylor Swift: Mean

This is Part 4 of a series about Fun with Literacy: Taylor Swift lyrics

My students and I have enjoyed analyzing Taylor’s songs for literary techniques and figurative language. This song has special meaning to a lot of people because it’s about being picked on and bullied. You’ll see how the catchy chorus provides an empowering message. As usual, telling detail, clever rhymes and storytelling flair help listeners connect emotionally to the song.

I hope you enjoy my literary analysis of the song “Mean” by Taylor Swift from her album Speak Now.
