Poetry has many terms we use to do a literary analysis of a poem. Terms such as stanza, quatrain, couplet, imagery, lines, rhyme, meter, rhythm, beat, enjambment, etc. are words you need to know to adequately analyze a poem.
After visiting the Module links on Poetry Analysis in Modules under Resources, use the Poetry Analysis Worksheet for TWO poems AT THE BOTTOM. Share your analysis here and tell how many literary terms can apply to each in about one paragraph of ten sentences. Look at the links for literary terms and the samples to help you. Please share in Discussions, NO attachments.
See the link below for how to do a poetry analysis. The poem choices are in the English 102 Reader 2022. If you have an earlier edition, go online or go to Modules to find the new poems.
