Your Assignment

  1.  Research poets and poetry in region that you selected in Assignment 1.

  2. Identify five poets for your region and select one poem of each poet that is of a geographic nature. Analyze what makes them geographic by relating the poems to class and book content as well as your article. Submit the poems with a paragraph to explain what is geographic. You may choose any combination of countries within your selected geographic region.

  3. Using one of the articles you analyzed for Assignment 1 and your reading of poetry from your chosen region, compose a poem of two to three four-line stanzas based on the content of one of your articles. Your original poem should provide as much detail from the article and as much intensity of emotion as possible

The easiest way to find full-text poetry by country it to use LIT FINDER. Use [Country} Poetry in the keyword search. Choose the PRIMARY SOURCES tab in the right hand column for poems and other literary works. Make sure to check FULL TEXT.

Check to confirm the poet is from your intended country! e.g. Spanish (language) poetry covers more than just poetry from Spain.
