Project #9536 - Poetry Explication

 For your poetry explication, you will select any poem we have studied in class (easier, perhaps to write about because we have discussed it) or one from outside of class and analyze it. An explication is a slow reading: the reader analyzes it line-by-line, indeed even word-for-word. After examining the poem closely and finding literary/poetic devices and scanning its structure (meter and rhyme scheme), you should try to connect those aspects of the poem to its meaning.  So I suggest you first, perhaps, read and interpret the meaning of the poem (write notes) and then list the devices. Find the connections. A note, however: in many cases, listing the devices first can actually help you interpret meaning.

One strategy for your essay is to study three (or so) devices and write a paragraph each dedicated to the way in which that device advances the meaning of the poem.

Another strategy is to find three (or so) points of meaning in the poem and dedicate a paragraph to each.  Then for each point, examine the devices that help construct it.

One last strategy is to write what you know and what you think about the structure and meaning of the poem and make the discussion clear and substantive in a way the reader will best understand and appreciate J

You should write 2-3 pages and attend MLA conventions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you consult an outside source or sources to help analyze you poem, CITE IT/THEM!!!  It is ok to consult them!!! I suggest you do so, however, after you have given the poem your best effort.  If I find any uncited information from an outside source, you will receive no credit for the assignment. Really.
