MLA 3-4 pages

Interpret the meanings of a poem, starting from the literal.  Tone, imagery, symbols, allusions, the speakerajnd addressee, meter, line length and breaks, structure, alliteration and assonance may all contribute to the meanings. Focus on the elements and techniques that strike you as most important, and support your commentary with quotations of words, phrases, or lines from the poem.  It is generally advisable to go through the poem line by line, revealing the effects or meanings as they become apparent.

 

 

here are some questions to answer about the poem to analyze it

1.  What parts of the poem interest you or puzzle you?  What words stand out as unusual?

2.  How can you describe the poem's speaker (sometimes called the persona or the voice)? Sometimes the speaker is very different from the poem's author.

3.  What tone or emotion do you detect?  Does the tone change during the course of the poem?

4. What is the structure of the poem?  Are there stanzas?.  If so, how is the thought affected by the stanzas?  What is the metrical pattern?  Is it regular?  If not, what do the irregularities accomplish?  What is the rhyme scheme?

5.  What is the theme of the poem?  Is this theme stated or implied?

 

6. What images do you find?  Look for evocation of sight, sound, touch, taste, or smell.  What does the poem suggest symbolically as well as literally?
