Paper Topic #2 R EAD   THESE   INSTRUCTIONS   CAREFULLY This paper is designed (1) to strengthen your skills in the close critical analysis of poetry,  and (2) to enable you to apply what you have learned in lecture about Tennyson’s poetry to  a particular passage taken from  In Memoriam . You are asked to provide a detailed critical commentary on  one  of the four passages listed  below. The commentary needs to be presented in continuous prose, in the form of a paper. In order to ensure that your critical reading attends to the  form, structure, and style  of your  chosen passage, you are advised to consider the questions listed below. Before drafting your  paper, look at these questions carefully. These questions should help you to focus your  attention on significant formal, structural, and stylistic features. You may want to write up  a brief set of notes (for your own reference) in response to each question. These notes will  assist you in formulating the ideas that you wish to develop in your paper.  What kind of poem are you analyzing?  How would you describe the poetic voice of the excerpt that you have selected?  How does the type of poetic voice affect your understanding of the passage?
