Pick a poem that you like and think is powerful. I encourage you to pick a spoken word poem (but it's not required). One of the values of spoken word is that the poet tells you what speed to absorb the poem, while reading text you have to figure that out on your own.
Pick specific lines or sections that you find powerful, or perhaps its the dramatic situation (the topic and setting of the poem). Write a carefully composed paragraph (that includes the lines in question) that explains what it is that creates the power of those lines. You might consider insights from the “intended audience” (who you think the author wrote the poem for, and then allusions or connections they would be likely to make). You might explain why particular devices (rhyme, repetition/anaphora, rhythm, figurative language, imagery, etc) are effective at conveying or adding power to the message.
Updated: Repeat this process 2 times for a B, 3 times for an A. You can do 2 or 3 sections of one poem, or a mix of sections of different poems. Post your writing on the blog, including links to the poem. So for a B, you're writing 2 paragraphs, for an A, 3 paragraphs. +5 POL points if you post by midnight on Sunday (so I can use your poems to prepare for Tuesday's class!)
