HW12G due 3/12: Sonnet 18 Rewrite

1. Sonnet 18–Continue your rewrite of the sonnet tonight. You should find a way to do this in concert with your group member(s). You will have the first 10 minutes of class tomorrow to finalize the poem. This is a Shakespearean sonnet! There are fourteen lines in a Shakespearean sonnet. The first twelve lines are divided into three quatrains with four lines each. In the three quatrains the poet establishes a theme or problem and then resolves it in the final two lines, called the couplet. The rhyme scheme of the quatrains is abab cdcd efef. The couplet has the rhyme scheme gg. Don’t forget: each of the fourteen lines of verse must be iambic pentameter.

2. Artifact Poem–Draft due Friday! Remember, the emphasis for this poem is fresh imagery/tropes! Avoid cliches and trite expressions!
