review quality ). two poems cited W r i t i n g
You are at a poetry reading and the poet comes on stage. Have him/her/them introduce themselves (here cite real information and use MLA in-text citation format). Then have them read the poem. (The poem itself is not included in page count. You need to choose one of the poems listed on the handout.) After they read it, have them explain what it is about and the devices and effects and overall message of the poem.
You must have the poet mention at least FOUR devices and effects and the overall message/theme of the poem to meet criteria.
Repeat this for one more poet.
You can add setting to be creative, if you wish. Where is the poetry reading happening? What does it feel, smell, look like? Only use quotes when it is information from sources. You do not need to use dialogue quotes when the person is speaking.FORMAT in Short:
Introduction. You arrive somewhere, to a bookstore, club, poetry jam, theatre, etc.—(creative and descriptive) (page one)
Poet number one introduces him/her/themselves (CITE your in-text citation from biographical research). The poet reads a poem (include the poem and in-text citation where you got it) and the poet analyzes one of their poems for the audience (you are in audience) (page two and three)
Poet number two introduces him/her/themselves (CITE your in-text citation from biographical research). The poet reads a poem (include the poem and in-text citation where you got it) and the poet analyzes one of their poems for the audience (you are in audience) (page four and five)
Conclusion. Wrap it up creatively. Sign their book? Leave with your date? Meet the author? Have fun with it! (page five or six)
