Name_____________________________ Poem______________________________ Poetry Project Part I: Paraphrase/ Annotations This will be an ongoing, multi-step project that you will complete over the course of our poetry unit. For the project you will choose one poem (approx. 12-25 lines long, by an American or British poet, with clear poetic techniques) from the list provided. You may choose a poem that is not on the list, but it MUST be approved by your instructor. You will be spending the next month with this poem, so choose one you like. Make at least 10 (small) copies of your poem for future assignments. 1. Paraphrase (20 pts) Type up a copy of your poem (the act of typing it will familiarize you with the poem in ways that mere reading cannot). Do not forget to include line numbers. On a clean copy of your poem, paraphrase it. Double space your poem and write your paraphrase above each line. DO NOT PUT YOUR PARAPHRASE ON A SEPARATE PAGE.
