After returning the parody marks, we started our abbreviated poetry unit today. In looking at various poetry samples, we noted the use of IMAGERY, SIMILES, METAPHORS and ALLUSIONS, particularly in the poem “Dissection.” We also saw that poetry is all around us, including in the lyrics of the music we listen to every day.
Choose 10-20 lines from a song you like that constitutes POETRY. Look for the use of imagery, similes, metaphors, allusions. Look for how it captures and preserves an experience or expresses an emotion. Bring this with you to class on Wednesday, April 19th.
