Project #92064 - Poetry Critique

ESSAY 1 – POETRY CRITIQUE

 

 

For your first essay, you will write a poetry critique of two poems.  The poems are paired together based on a common theme.  The poets, however, approach this common theme differently.  In your critique you need to do the following: 

1.       Open your essay with an introduction, stating the theme of both poems.

 

2.      Interpret and analyze the first poem. You need to discuss both the CONTENT and FORM  of each poem.  To do this, use the same techniques we used during our class discussions, when we have talked about individual poems.  First, look up any words you don’t know the meaning of.  Then read the poem several times until you have an understanding of what it’s about.  In your critique, you need to do a STANZA BY STANZA interpretation of the poem.  You may have to focus on the meaning, or multiple meaning of individual lines.  It really depends on the poem.

After you discuss the poem’s content—or what it’s about—analyze the poem’s form. Use the Poetry Terms sheet that you have.  Examine particular poetic techniques that the poet uses such as: the number of stanzas, rhyme scheme, rhythm or free verse, metaphor, personification, simile, symbol, alliteration. Give an overall interpretation of the poem.

 

3.      Do the same thing (above) for the second poem.

 

4.      In the next section of your critique, compare and contrast the two poems. How are they alike and different?  Compare and contrast both the content and form of the poems.

 

5.      Round your critique off with a conclusion.

 

 Your critique should be 3-4 pages along, depending on the poems and what you have to say.

 

              Overall, the idea in your essay is to explore both poems thoroughly so that the reader ends up    with a clear understanding of each poem and their similarities and differences.
