Aside from the poems we didn’t discuss in your readings package, here are some more to choose from for your midterm project:
The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
How Do I Love Thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
this poem by e.e. cummings
A Day in Bed by Katherine Mansfield
Black Petal by Li-Young Lee
Red Slippers by Amy Lowell
Daffodils by William Wordsworth
A Myth of Devotion by Louise Gluck
The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe
This untitled poem by Emily Dickinson
Because I could not stop for death by Emily Dickinson
Ozymandias, by Percy Bysshe Shelley
A Winter Night by Sara Teasdale
any one of Shakespeare’s sonnets, but choose carefully!
Remember, your written project should basically treat the poem in a way similar to how we treat them during presentations or class discussions: consider their contents, structure, meaning, and so on.
The due date is Wednesday, October 31st, at 6:00pm in my mailbox, which is in room #205, ë‹¤ì†”ê´€. Good luck!
