Welcome to our blog for English 207, Introduction to Writing Poetry and Fiction. This blog is where I will post our homework after each class. It’s also where you will post much of your creative and analytical writing. We will not use Blackboard. If you want to familiarize yourself with the syllabus, reading, and larger assignments go ahead click on the pull tab on the lefthand side of this page and start exploring. I’ll look forward to meeting each of you–and your writing! Hello Creative Writing: It was great to meet all of you today. Here is what is due for Wednesday. Syllabus, Lexicon, & Reading Journal Handout. Pay particular attention to how you should go about your reading journal entries. Reading Journal – The Line This group of readings will focus on the poetic line. Each poem is meant to demonstrate a different use of the line. Poetry Coursepack: Rilke, “From A Childhood”; Tory Dent, from “HIV, Mon Amour”; William Carlos Williams, “Poem”; Found Poems by Stephanie Barber, Marc Nowak, and Stephen Collis & Jordon Scott. Handbook: “Found Poem” (97-99); Line (115-118); Stanza (209-210) Print then read each poem. Then, in your reading journal, do the following. 1) Copy into your journal a passage that excited, troubled, confused, and/or disappointed you. Be prepared to share the passage and an explanation of why you selected it. Answer the following in complete sentences: 2) Not every genre of art offers the same thing to those experiencing it, so we want to think about what makes poetry poetry. What does the poem offer? How is this different than what a story or essay offers? Use the poem thatmost appealed to you to answer this question. This might be a tough one for those of you leery of poetry! 3) After reading the entry on The Line in our Handbook, closely examine the line breaks (where the author has decided to break the line) of “Poem” (by William Carlos Willaims, “from HIV, Mon Amour,” and “From a Childhood.” Pick two poems to compare and contrast in the following questions: What patterns emerge? What is the effect of the line breaks on how you read the overall meaning or mood of the poem? To answer these questions, you might want to consider where within the structure of the sentences the line breaks fall and what words the line breaks make each line begin or end on. Bring an annotated hard copy of these readings to class. Experiment – Found Poem Directions: Find a hunk of non-poetic language (i.e. not song lyrics) and break it into poetic lines. This language can come from anywhere other than literary art–a textbook, a billboard, a comment stream, etc. Your challenge is to take something that may seem boring, mundane, or clichéd and bring it to life through your line breaks. Post your poem to the blog. To do this, go to “Publish: Blog Posts” —> click “Add” —> After you’ve titled and typed in your poem, click “Publish.” If WordPress messes up the formatting of your poem, feel free to attach it as a Word .doc or .docx. Go to the homepage of the blog to verify that you’ve successfully published your found poem. Examples: See Found Poems by James Yeary, Marc Nowak, and Stephen Collis & Jordon Scott in the Poetry Coursepack. If you’re stuck, think about where in the flow of each sentence the line break occurs. What is the effect of this? Why do you think the author has made this decision
