Our reading for this week discusses a number of different poetic forms, beginning with the basic distinction between closed poetic forms (poems using a set, pre-established pattern of rhythm and rhyme) and open poetic forms (poems that do not use a pre-established pattern of rhythm and rhyme).
Initial post: For this assignment, use the poem that was assigned to you in this week’s quiz, and investigate its form using one or more of these elements of poetic form that you feel are particularly important in this poem (you do not need to discuss them all):
rhythm, meter, and cadence
diction and syntax
line breaks and stanza breaks
In your initial post, explain how the elements you focused on affect the way that the poem communicates its meaning to you, but make sure to focus your discussion on the specific elements of form present in the poem you chose.
divide your posts into paragraphs for easier reading, and make sure to reference, paraphrase, or quote specific passages from the text to support and illustrate what you say.
My story is “The Lake Isle of Innisfree.”
