HWK: Read Poems by YOUR Poet

Once you have selected your poet and poem, 
READ OTHER POEMS by your poet.

Then begin researching the following...

  • Where did your poet grow up?
  • Where did your poet go to school?
  • What inspired your poet to write poetry? 
  • How does your poet define poetry? What is his or her ars peotica?
  • What other poets influenced your poet to write poetry?
  • Who has your poet influenced? 
  • Was your poet a part of a school or movement? See this Poetry Timeline.
Post links to the biography of your poet - curate a few interesting points with hyperlinks.

Begin thinking about presenting your poem in a dynamic digital medium
that you can post to your blog (perhaps via iMovie or Prezi). 

  • Note the imagery and symbolism: select images 
  • Note the theme and motifs
  • Note the figurative language:
  • Note the alliteration, assonance, consonance, meter 
  • Note the allusions or references
  • Note the rhyme scheme, form, enjambment etc.
  • Note the tone - and shifts in tone
