Assignment 8: Poetry Writing and Analysis – due May 28
Write a poem inspired in some way by your memoir or fiction piece. Then, in at least two paragraphs, reflect about your own approach to writing the poem. What were you trying to get across in the poem? What elements of craft, such as line, stanza, form, syntax, meter, rhyme, repetition, imagery, metaphor, or any other, did you employ to help achieve your intended meaning? How was the process of writing this poem similar or different to your effort writing prose?
Choose a poem to analyze, identifying at least three elements of craft used by the poet. Include quotes and specifics from the poem, and indicate what you believe the poet’s intent was through their artistic decisions. This should be at least 500 words long.
