HW12G due 3/5: To the Virgins and Poetry Writing Workshop

1. Writing Workshop–An exercise in fresh imagery and tropes! Using your artifact for visual, emotional, spiritual inspiration, you are to write a minimum of 14 lines of verse. Stanzaic shape is up to you! Attention to rhyme and/or meter will be left to your discretion. I am interested in fresh image and trope! So, to best of your ability, bring the emotional, spiritual, visual essence of your artifact and its accompanying memories to life.

681 Cliches to Avoid!

2. To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time by Robert Herrick–Annotate closely, paying attention to how the nuances of the poem work independently and in concert to make meaning.

3. If you did not post your poetry explication on the forum, please do so by midnight tonight.
