For this assignment, write 2-3 paragraphs about one of your favorite poems. I know that it can be tricky to declare your absolute favorite poem, so just pick one that is meaningful to you right now. It can be a poem from the textbook or another poem that you truly love. This assignment allows you to reflect on the two main themes of the module: why we read poetry and how to close read a poem. In the first paragraph, explain your personal connection to the poem. Why did you select it? What about the poem rings true to you? Then in the next one to two paragraphs, select one literary term for each paragraph and apply it to the poem. You should define the term, provide examples from the poem, and offer your analysis of how applying the term to the poem deepens your understanding of that poem.
