Poetry Portfolio “To find ourselves spoken for in art gives dignity to our pain, our anger, our lust, our losses. We can hear what we hope for and what we fear most in the small release of cadenced utterance.” –Marge Piercy During a large portion of our study of the Harlem Renaissance, we will focus on poetry— reading it, watching it, appreciating it, connecting to it, analyzing it, annotating it, performing it, compiling it, composing it…you get it. As we look at poetry, you will see that it can be a powerful form of artistic expression—one that is loaded with voice, personality, and strong opinions. That having been said, why wouldn’t you want the opportunity to create some of your own? In addition to completing a poet study and imitation poems with a small group, you will compose 5 original poems to demonstrate your full understanding of poetry and your ability to take a stand and express yourself through this particular art form. Here are the rules for your 5 original poems: You must use at least five poetic devices! Feel free to use more than 5. (simile, metaphor, alliteration, assonance, allusion, consonance, hyperbole, personification, synecdoche, imagery, onomatopoeia, rhyme, symbolism, etc.) Please italicize or bold these.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
