1.Write a 1,000-word analysis essay of any of the poems in your textbook. Be thorough!Poetry essays MUST contain a LINE-BY-LINE analysis and must also contain a discussion of the FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE used in the poem. Each word carries importance in a poem. All lines are important. Poetry lines must be quoted and those quotes must have MLA poetry line citations, which are very different than MLA citations for short stories, so make sure you understand the difference. If you provide only a general discussion of your interpretation of the meaning behind the poem, you will not receive a high score on this assignment.
2.Discussion Board:Write your own original poem! Send your poem to me in an email. Make sure your name is on that document. Then post your poem to the discussion board.
