Poetry Analysis – Rough Draft
By the due date assigned, attach the rough draft of your essay as a Microsoft Word document to the Discussion Area. By the end of Week 1, comment on at least two of your classmates’ submissions using the peer review questions provided below.
NOTE: This is a two-part assignment. The rough draft is worth up to 80 points of the grade, and the peer reviews are worth up to 20 points.
The essay assignment for this week is to compose an essay of at least 750 words in which you offer your interpretation of a literary element (such as theme, imagery, symbolism, or characterization) in one of the assigned poems. You may choose any poem from our Week 1 or Week 2 poetry reading list. If you wish, you may base your paper on the analysis you began in this week’s discussion.
Tips for the Essay
Open your introduction with an engaging opener, such as a question, quote from the poem, or interesting idea. Then, connect to the poem and mention the title and the author. End your introduction with a thesis statement that interprets one literary element of the poem (such as theme, imagery, symbolism, or characterization).
The body paragraphs should support your thesis. Present specific aspects of the poem that help to illustrate your points. Make sure to quote from the poem and analyze specific lines that support your argument. Typically, body paragraphs will contain at least two short quotations each as supporting evidence.
Include a strong concluding paragraph that summarizes your main points and explains the significance of the thesis. Finish this paragraph with a strong and satisfying ending.
APA Reminder
Use APA style for formatting the essay and for source citations. Begin with a title page and use proper font and spacing. End with a separate references page. Refer to the Week 1 lecture on avoiding plagiarism for an APA essay template and additional resources.
Important Note: Do not do any outside research for this essay. This analysis should be your own insights regarding the poem. If you need help, refer to the sample student paper shared in the lecture on themes, and contact your instructor with questions.
Note: The name of the poem to read is ” Since Feeling is First”.

FINAL EXAM
Overview
Write an essay in which you compare and contrast how two different poems from our textbook or Canvas explore a single idea or aspect of poetry. The idea or aspect you compare in the two poems could be a definition of poetry (think Ars Poetica), a subgenre or kind of poem, the speakers, a situation or setting, a common theme, a common tone, diction, imagery, figures of speech, use of symbols, their sounds, or their internal structure and external form.
You must select two poems about which you have not yet written for a paper or exam (it is OK if you used the poems in a discussion post).
In your thesis statement, be sure to clearly state your point of comparison and how it impacts your understanding of the two poems. Then compose your essay around each poem’s development focusing on your point of comparison. Aspects of the poems you may want to address include form (title, presentation, rhythm, sonic devices, line breaks, sentences, diction, figuration, etc.), content (imagery, metaphors, structure, type of reasoning, emotions, tone, voice, speakers, attitude, setting, etc.), or anything else that strikes you as helpful in comparing the two poems. Use the questions we discussed earlier in the semester as a guide.
Any reaction you have to the poems is acceptable as long as you locate it in the poems themselves. Remain grounded in the text! Avoid vague comments and concentrate instead on how your poems relate to each other and your point of comparison. The core of the essay should be a comparison of the two poems.
The Specifics
Your essay should be 1000-1500 words. List the word count at the end.
Your essay should be typed, double-spaced, and in Times New Roman 12-point font with 1″ margins. Use MLA formatting.
Your essay must be submitted via Canvas by midnight on Thursday, 5/13. Emailed copies (or anything other than submission via Canvas) are considered late regardless of when they are sent.
Your essay should have a title that reflects your take on the subject matter or thesis statement. In other words, something a bit more than “Final Exam” or “Poetry Test” This is your chance to set your readers’ expectations.
Quote from the poems as often as necessary to help you illustrate your points. Use in-text citations to direct me to the appropriate lines. Remain grounded in the text!
To the best of your ability, use the vocabulary terms from our course when discussing the poems.
To err is human, which makes proofreading a must. I recommend reading your paper aloud before finalizing your draft.

The Final Exam is worth 25% of your final grade

Choose 20 poems written before 1900 and 20 poems written after 1900. All poems m

Choose 20 poems written before 1900 and 20 poems written after 1900. All poems must be chosen from our text. For each poem, write down an important quotation and your reaction to that quote in 3 – 5 sentences. What is the meaning of this quotation? How does it affect the rest of the poem? What is important about the LANGUAGE AND METER of the quote? What is important about the TONE and IMAGERY of the quote? State the poet, title , and year the poem was written (always listed at the end of the poem).
Here is an example:
On My First Son, Ben Johnson, 1616
“Farewell, thou child of my right hand, and joy;
My sin was too much hope of thee, loved boy:
Seven years thou were lent to me, and I thee pay,
Exacted by the fate, on the just day. ”
This quote begins a somber elegy to the speaker’s son (Johnson’s son)who died on his seventh birthday. The poem describes the depth of the father’s grief, and his “sin” in pride that he had “too much hope of thee”. The poet describes his son as his “best piece of poetry” Due to the regular rhythm and AABBCCDDEEFF rhyme scheme, the poet’s suffering is dignified and heartfelt due to the elegance of the language.
The purpose of this log is to give you the experience of reading and reflecting on the 40 poems you choose. There is no incorrect way to do this.

Use predominantly one-sentence lines (i.e. lines that are each a complete sentence ending in a period).
Use repetition & variation. First, the one-sentences lines will establish a pattern for the poem; but feel free to break that pattern now and then by continuing a sentence past the line break. Remember not to vary too much or the pattern will be broken. Second, repeat a rhetorical phrase or two, as all three of the model poems do (e.g. “There is the sound of …” and “A confession began …”).
Construct some kind of conceptual list in the poem. E.g. apologies, sounds, confessions, as in the model poems.
Try pentameter-length or slightly longer lines. Be careful, though, not to get too prosy with your lines!
Pay extra attention to your phrasing, because in this kind of poem, the rhythm can get very dull with all those lines ending in periods. You’ve still got to create music and rhythm across your lines and down the page.
Try to use this form to be as expansive, inclusive and symphonic as possible! If you’re more of a soloist in the one-sentence poem, in this poem you should sound like an orchestra. Try to get beyond the self into the world.
As always, ground the poem in evocative physical detail, and use metaphors/similes when you can.
Try to keep the poem under one page in length (single-spaced), if you can; if you have to go over, try not to exceed 1.5 pages max.
