Due 10/24: The Bell Jar…

1. The Bell Jar–Read and annotate Chapters 15 and 16.

2. Vocab Quiz

3. Confessional Poetry–The linked reading is quite brief, yet gives us a sense of the nature of confessional poetry. Confessional Poems are due 10/27 for 10H and 10/28 for 10B. It is not a good idea to wait until the night before to write this. Start thinking about what you would like to write about.


  • Honest and Authentic
  • Free verse is fine
  • You must use stanzaic form
  • Pay attention to sound as you write
  • You must employ “painterly language” and literary devices (i.e. vivid imagery, metaphor, symbolism, motifs, etc)
  • Write from the inside out

4. By the end of next week, you should have 25 words in your personal vocab section.
