HW due 2/9: Weekend Homework

1. Fundamentals of Poetry–Be sure you know the highlighted sections of the handout for a quiz on Tuesday!
2. Poetry Journal–Write ten couplets using Iambs throughout! Ensure that your couplets are actually written in iambs. If your verse is truly written in iambs, you should HEAR the rhythm of each line of verse. Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day (classic iambic pentameter) has a clear rhythm because of its meter. So, you should HEAR the rhythm in your couplets. Subject/theme is totally up to you!
3. Print and Scan the following poems:

Death, Be Not Proud by John Donne
Loving in Truth, and Fain in Verse My Love to Show by Sir Philip Sidney
