Poetry Project for Creative Writing Assignment ONE: Discovering New Poets and Poetry 1. Analyze three poems from different centuries. Using the websites listed below, find three poems that appeal to you. The poem must be written by a poet whose poetry you never read before; you might have heard of the poet but have not read any of her/his work previously. Select one poem from each of the following time periods: 16 th -17 th centuries, 18 th -19 th centuries, and 20 th -21 st centuries. - - - ) 2. Do the TPFASST Chart for two of the poems . 3. In a paragraph , write why you selected this poem and what it means to you. The first sentence of this paragraph should include the title of the poem (in quotation marks) and the poet’s name and the key thing that you want to say about the poem. When you refer to the poet again in the paragraph, use her/his last name. Your paragraph should include what the poem means or says to you. Remember, in poetry a tree is not just a tree; it will have a literal meaning as well as a figurative one. Many poems (should I say most?) deal with love, death, beauty, dreams, and disappointments. Consider symbolism, metaphors, and universal themes in your musings on the poem. Also, think about how the time period when the poem was written reflects on both the language used and the topic of the poem. Do for one poem .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
