Reading Homework for Monday and Wednesday discussion (not to be on the quiz Monday).
Read this Intro as well as the bio and listed poems for the following poets:
Ezra Pound In a Station of the Metro The River Merchant's Wife
T.S. Eliot Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
Wallace Stevens Sunday Morning, The Emperor of Ice Cream, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird The Snowman
and Mina Loy Lost Lunar Baedeker and Moreover, the Moon
Your first assignment will involve an imitation piece or series from the works we’ve read. (500 word minimum). It can be written in a variety of forms (essay,poetry, formal, etc.) as long as it meets the word count. One way to tackle this might be to write a poem by the light of one of these pieces and then to write a short letter or essay piece that describes your process: how you worked from the imitation and how you worked away from or against it.
