Analyze a single element of poetry in the 3-5 poems you have chosen and use that analysis to develop an interpretation of each poem. If you choose this assignment, you should know by Monday, April 20 which element you will be concentrating on. We will discuss metaphor, imagery, voice, and diction in class. There is also symbol, syntax, sound, rhythm and meter, structure, and theme. For this assignment you can pick poems by the same poet or poems by different poets.
