Poetry Analysis

Poetry Analysis

Write an essay based on your response to one (or two) of the poems in Arguing about Literature textbook. Your essay may be an explication or an argument/interpretation or a combination of both purposes. Consider the questions in our textbook immediately following each poem; these specific questions will help you generate ideas for your paper. Recall our discussion of the sample paper on pp.154-166. Refer to two or three secondary sources (criticism written about the poem that you have chosen) in your essay. You may choose any poem in the textbook for your paper as long as you can find appropriate secondary sources written about it.
