Ex 2-2: Poetry Portfolio
You have already written several poems for this class. In a single word-processor file to be uploaded to Turnitin.com, compile a selection of works that demonstrate your ability to apply what you have learned about prosody, meter, language, and "showing." Call to my attention any specific effects you strove to achive.
You may include one poem that you consider "finished" -- that is, something that you wrote before this class, and something you aren't interested in revising. (Please mark that poem as such so I can respond to it appropriately.)
I'm not requiring you to wrote up a formal analysis of each poem you submit, but if you want to call attention to something you wrote, or a theme that defines your portfolio, please write a short statement.
You may arrange your portfolio to highlight your growth as a poet, or your ongoing struggles with a particular aspect of poetic form.
You are welcome to post your portfolio on your blog, but it's not required.
