Project #18208 - literature


"Imagery"- how words create meaningful pictures (and sounds, and smells, etc.) Imagery is a blanket term that is important in all of literature, but especially poetry. Do yourselves a favor and invest a lot of effort in understanding this important literary concept.

The two very short poems I want us to concentrate on here are: Ezra Pound's "In a Station of the Metro" and Emily Dickinson's "A Route of Evanescence." Both these short "lyric" poems can be easily googled to get copies. Both use imagery to paint meaningful and beautiful "pictures."

YOUR WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT: 1. Analyze the imagery of Pound's little two line poem; there's a lot more to this than you might expect. 2. PARAPHRASE Dickinson's short lyric poem (explaining the images)--Note: When I first read this poem a few years ago, I had to re-read about 10 times before I finally "got it." Poetry is DIFFICULT, but the great poems, like the ones I'm asking you to read and understand here, are worth the effort.

AFTER you have finished, post your ANALYSIS OF "A STATION AT THE METRO" on the Discussion Board I created for this poem.  (All you are doing for this and next poem is copy-and-pasting your assignment for the whole class to read) .

 

After finishing your explication of "A ROUTE OF EVANESCENCE" post on the Discussion Board for Dickinson's poem.
