Students One & All, (But Especially Contemporary Lit.)
Writing Poetry your links:
Sonnet. Sestinas. Pantoums and Villanelles can be found here: poetryfoundation.org as well as poets.org
And these glossaries of literary and poetic terms should be useful to all classes. (They can really help you with your imitation and formal assignments and are invaluable for class discussion).
CONTEMPORARY LIT CLASSES VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:
I have to leave earlier than expected for the 30th Anniversary Celebration of Wick Poetry Center. My husband's sudden departure left me with some pressing responsibilities and the inability to address them all before I have to take off.
I have arranged for substitutes for both classes. Roll will be taken and a film will be shown. This is the one on Ezra Pound. It is fascinating and very important as we begin to discuss Modernism. Please be there and attentive to it. No phones, laptops or naps, please. This is a really interesting figure in poetry and I expect everyone to be quiz-ready and fully present for the showing. Make our class look good. Have a wonderful weekend. Email me with any questions or concerns.
Thanks for understanding. Please know that I go in representation of our fine school and all of you of whom I could not be more proud. See you next week!
