For this assignment, you will explore the elements of poetry. You will concentrate your main argument for
this paper on analyzing a poem or poems you choose from the textbook. One tendency we readers of poetry tend to
have is to inject a storyline into our readings of poetry. While it is true that some poems have
storylines, the main characteristic of a poem is to pull our attention more

your compare and contrast paper, give a purpose for comparing and
contrasting. To reveal the similarities

Find more than one poem by the same author. Choose your original poem from the reading
list on the syllabus, first. Then, if
there is not another poem by the same author on the syllabus, you may choose
one from the textbook. Compare and contrast
the authorâ€™s use of the poetic elements.
Demonstrate and explain how both of the authorâ€™s pieces generally
express his or her main ideas. 3. You may choose to focus on
one poem by one particular author. Pick
this poem from the reading list on the syllabus. Concentrate on explaining how the author
