Poetry Selections (blog by Monday)
The poets we'll be looking at today are Theodore Roethke, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, and Sylvia Plath, so keep an eye out for their names in the introduction.
I've assigned three sets of poetry readings (the first is this page, and the other two are on separage pages for Roethke and Plath). I'm asking that you post three separate agenda items, one for each chunk of readings. You don't need to post 2-4 comments for each set of readings; if you post a total of 4 comments this week, that would be fine. (You're welcome to post more of course, as extra credit to boost your participation grade; just make sure you call my attention to your extra work when you submit your next blog portfolio.)
Readings for this section:
- Pages xv-xxiv in the introduction.
- Elizabeth Bishop: "Armadillo" (page 47); "Manners" (48); "Filling Station" (49)
- Robert Lowell: "The Drinker"
(93)(97); "Robert Frost" (103); "Bringing a Turtle Home" (105) and "Returning Turtle" (106)
