The Assignment

Your task is to choose one of the poems from our textbook that we are not reading in class (so one that is not listed on the syllabus) and analyze it.

In addition to the poem, I want you to do some literary research: find at least four articles that you can use in your essay that will help with your analysis. At least two of these articles should be from scholarly journals.

No more than one of these articles should be focused on biographical information about the author. 

PRINT OUT THE ARTICLES YOU USE AND SUBMIT WITH YOUR ESSAY.
