Project #65579 - Intro to Poetry Project

needs to be 2 pages

For the two Poems:

Philip Levine’s “Llanto” 

Kay Ryan’s “Don’t Look Back”

 

After choosing a poem from the above list, ask yourself these (somewhat overlapping) questions:

•What is the Dramatic Situation? Who seems to be talking? To whom does the speaker seem to be talking? What is the setting of the poem? What other tangible details does the poem use to establish its literal circumstances?

•How does the poem develop? What is its logic? How many steps does the poem seem to make? What indicates a change from one logical step to another?

 

Now, after considering the above questions, compose your Annotation & Analysis around this overarching question: How does the selected poem, through both its development and its formal features, help us to see a variety of emotions/ideas/themes in a fresh and particular way?

Note 1: As you draft your commentary, please be detailed in your discussion. Since the assignment asks you to discuss what is going on at the poem’s literal level, it only makes sense that you refer to specific words, lines, and, when needed, full stanzas.

Note 2: Since this is a college course, I expect writing and analysis that is appropriate to that level. As a result, I expect that your interpretations be argumentative in that they 1) have a clearly defined thesis, 2) have a clear logical development, and 3) be free of grammatical and spelling errors. Take pride in your work, dig deep into your discussion, and present it in a professional manner.

Another Note: I do not expect, nor will I accept, any outside research for this part of the project. In short, trust yourself and demonstrate your command of the subject matter through your own group’s discussion, stated in your own group’s words, developing your own ideas.

Okay, really, the Final Note: It may seem that I expect a lot of you regarding this project. Well, I do. But, at the same time, I’m very happy to help you. Let me know what I can do to get you moving.

A good Annotation & Analysis will:

•Provide a thoughtful, patient, and careful analysis of the poem that discusses the literal aspects of the poem (the Dramatic Situation) before it offers its interpretation.

•Discuss effectively and persuasively where and why the literal elements of the poem suggest something more abstract and metaphoric.

•Use a consistent system of annotation (like the color-coding in the attached example) to associate specific observations in the Analysis to the specific elements of the poem under discussion.

•Clearly develop and explain each observation in the Analysis. That is, each annotated element must be fully explained in the analysis.

•Not draw from ANY outside sources. All the insight and analysis must come from within the group. Do not do any research into the poem or the poet for this project. Rely on and develop exclusively the insights of the group.

•Include the text of the poem that is both legible and accurately transcribed. •Include at the beginning a Title Screen that includes the poem’s title, the poet’s name, and the

names of each member of the group.
