How do the two poems compare?
What are the main ideas expressed in the poem you chose by Rich or Mora? How well do the main ideas expressed in this poem compare with the topics, themes, or ideas the art-of-poetry poem suggests poetry should cover?
How well does the poem by Rich or Mora that you chose reflect the ideas about poetry expressed in the poem you chose from “The Art of (Reading) Poetry”? In other words, does Rich’s or Mora’s poem have the characteristics that the poem about the art of poetry says poems should have? Is your experience of reading Mora’s or Rich’s poem what the art-of-poetry poem says the experience should be? Why or why not?
How do the two poems compare? Do they use similar techniques to have effects on their readers? In other words, do they use similar diction, figures of speech, ways of characterizing their speakers, or rhythm? How are these techniques related to your experience of reading the poems and how well they fit the ideas about poetry in the art-of-poetry poem?
5) Develop a main point, or a thesis statement, for your paper. This thesis should focus on how the poem by Rich or Mora that you chose compares with the ideas about what poetry is like in the poem you chose from “The Art of (Reading) Poetry.”
6) Develop supporting paragraphs that use analysis of specific quotations and details from the poem and explain those specific quotations and details. Review the lecture “The Essential Moves of Literary Analysis” within Topic 3: Writing about Literature. This lecture provides a paragraph structure that works well to keep your paragraphs focused and show how everything in the paragraph relates to your paragraph’s main claim.
Be sure to review the course materials we have studied about the conventions for writing about literature, and poetry specifically.
