10H – 10-13 March 2015 – FIre & Ice

We’ll spend these several days working on “closeness” with some contemporary poems (to borrow a term from Robert Frost). Your job is to read a handful of poems from at least 5-6 different poets on our cart. For each poet, you’ll write a short (1/2 page) journal entry analyzing that author’s style.

As you read, you’re also to keep your eyes peeled for a poem or two (three actually) that you really like. They could all be from the same author or from three different authors. For each of the three, write a short, short journal entry (1 paragraph) explaining what you like about that poem. And snap a picture of it. You’re going to want it later. šŸ™‚

The elaborated instructions I gave in class are available here for you as are the Examples from the back of that page (the ones here are annotated so you can see what I think is so great about the entry).
