Poetry Project

Post  Admin on March 2nd 2009, 1:56 pm

Major Paper #4: Poetry Project
Students will select an American poet from the list provided. They will be asked to read a
collection of poems by the poet, a biography or compilation containing biographical information about the poet, and a work of critical analysis by an established scholar about the poet. (The 7-10 page paper with MLA citation should contain introductory biographical information about the poet (1-2 pages), and then a close reading and analysis of two of the poet’s major poems. The analysis of the poems should focus on the use of rhetorical devices such as voice, form, figurative language, and other poetic devices such as imagery, rhyme and meter. In doing scholarly research, students should also be able to cite commentary on the poems from published scholars. Internet sources must be kept to a minimum and cited properly.)
List of poets to choose from:
