LTRE 421 DeVry Week 3 Discussion 1

How to Talk About Poetry (graded)

Review the lecture material for Weeks 2 and 3, reread “How to Read a Poem” from our textbook, and consider the topic of prosody—the study of how poetry is composed in all of its elements.

Discuss the elements of the poem you selected to imitate or work from. Discuss the elements of your own poem. Consider elements such as persona, image, meter, rhythm, rhyme, metaphor, symbol, allegory, mood, and voice. What elements have you used, and why? How do your choices help make your poem better?

Critiquing the Poetry of Others (graded)

  1. S. Eliot wrote “The Waste Land,” but the poem would not have been the same without the strong editorial hand of Ezra Pound. In this discussion, we will consider the poetry of our peers.

Each of you will post a draft of your poem, and then we will edit each other’s work. For this week, pretend you are an editor: What changes would you make to improve or change a peer’s poem?
