On your respective class blogs are original poems written by you and your classmates. I would like you to offer feedback in the form of blog post comments.
Three comments that satisfy the criteria = a "check," six comments = a "check plus."
Please bring a printed copy of your comments to class on Monday, April 23rd.
Your comments should respond to each of the following:
- What do you think about after reading the poem? Are you envisioning anything in your head? What do you see in your mind's eye?
- What was something that this poem did effectively? Does it contain effective metaphors, allusions, imagery, alliteration, rhyme, or some other poetic or literary device?
- How do you feel after having read this poem? Are you warm and happy? Shocked? Contemplative? Sad and forlorn? Hopeful? What was it about the poem that made you feel this way?
- Does this poem remind you of anything else you've read? Are any of its themes or ideas similar to another poem or work of literature you've encountered over the course of your academic career?
Your classmates and I thank you for your valuable and insightful feedback!
