The Short Story and Poem: A Comparison of Literary Forms

 

Reflecting on this week’s literary readings, as well as your own reading experiences, identify at least one major similarity and one major difference between the forms of the short story and the poem. How do the differences between these literary forms affect how you read and respond to them? 

 

In your response, include an example of at least one poem from this week’s readings. Describe the connections between (a) the poem’s form and/or use of literary devices and your experience of the poem and (b) your reading experience (see key literary terms listed in our textbook – e.g., alliteration, rhyme, iambic pentameter, etc.). If you wish, you may also compare your experience of the poem to your experience reading a short story that shares with the poem a similar theme. 

 

Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the text/poem, and properly cite any references. 

 

Reading Response: Poetry and Performance

 

Listen to We Real Cool  http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/15433 and My Papa’s Waltz:  .http://www.poetryarchive.org/poetryarchive/singlePoem.do?poemId=9505 These clips demonstrate the importance of performance, rhythm, and musicality in the poetic form. 

 

Describe your listening experience of one or more of the poems. (If you prefer, you may find a recording of another poem from the course readings and describe your listening experience of it instead. If you choose this option, be sure to provide a link to the audio of the chosen poem.) How did hearing the text(s) recited aloud compare to a silent reading of it/them? Did the performance in any ways add to or detract from your experience of the text? Did the performance change your perception of the poem or its content in any ways? Explain how (or how not). 

 

Support your ideas with textual details and analysis. When applicable, address how specific literary techniques and/or devices contributed to your experience?  Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the text/poems, and properly cite any references.
