Poetry Essay Instructions

In Module/Week 5, you will write a 750-word (approximately 3 pages) essay that analyzes 1 poem from the Poetry Unit. Before you begin writing the essay, carefully read the below guidelines for developing your paper topic and review the Poetry Essay Grading Rubric to see how your submission will be graded. Gather all of your information, plan the direction of your essay, and organize your ideas by developing a 1-page thesis statement and outline for your essay as you did for your Fiction Essay. Format the thesis statement and the outline in a single Microsoft Word document using current MLA, APA, or Turabian style, whichever corresponds to your degree program; check your Perrine’s Literature textbook, the Harbrace Essentials Handbook, and/or the link contained in the Assignment Instructions Folder, to ensure the correct citation format is used. 

The final essay must include, a title page (see the General Writing Requirements), a thesis/outline page, and the essay itself followed by a works cited/references/bibliography page of any primary and/or secondary texts cited in the essay.

Guidelines for Developing Your Paper Topic

The “Writing about Literature” section of your Perrine’s Literature textbook (pp. 1–54) and the “Writing” section of Harbrace Essentials (pp. 1–12, 18–21, 22–28) provide pointers which will be helpful for academic writing in general, and more specifically for your literary essay. Be sure that you read this section before doing any further work for this assignment. Take particular notice of the examples of poetry essays on pp. 43–48 of Perrine’s Literature.

Choose  the poems “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost

Consider answering the following questions about the poem that you have chosen:

  • What is/are      the theme(s) of the poem?
  • Is there a      literal setting or situation in the poem? What lines from the poem tell      the reader this information? What details does the author include?
  • Is the      setting symbolic?
  • How would you      describe the mood of the poem? What elements contribute to this mood?
  • Is the title      significant to the poem’s content or meaning? How?
  • What major      literary devices and figures of speech does the poet use to communicate      the theme(s)?
  • How are rhyme      and other metrical devices used in the poem? Do they support the poem’s      overall meaning? Why or why not?
  • Is the      identity of the poem’s narrator clear? How would you describe this person?      What information, if any, does the author provide about him or her?
  • Does the      narrator seem to have a certain opinion of or attitude about the poem’s      subject matter? How can you tell?

NOTE: These questions are a means of ordering your thoughts while you collect information for your essay. You do not need to include the answers to all of these questions in your essay; only include those answers that directly support your thesis statem
