10H – 5 March 2015 – Foster for tomorrow!

For tomorrow, please read Foster’s chapter “If It’s Square, It’s a Sonnet.” For your journal on that, (a) Identify what his “pattern” is for reading sonnets. (b) Read one sonnet and one “almost sonnet” from your packet and write about how/why the poet deviates from the sonnet form in each of the poems. Note: “almost sonnets” are around 14 lines, basically square, but might not be titled “sonnet” or might not be a classic “sonnet.”

Today we talked about “Musee Des Beaux Arts” and it’s ekphrastic relationship to the art of Pieter Breughel, the Elder (a Dutch painter).
