13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird
Group 4: Peer Critiques.
Group 4: poems returned, with corrections and provisional grades.
Remember, as you work on your poetry portfolios, that only the two completed exercises have to follow the instructions exactly. (Please remember to specify which exercises it was you did).
Your class poem and your new poem do not have to be based on exercises, though they can be if you wish.
The Reflection essay you write should be about one of these two poems, not about one of your two exercises. You'll be marked half on your comments on the poem from the Book of Readings that inspired / provoked / parallels your own piece, and half on the comments on your own process of composition.
NB: It follows that either your class poem or your new poem must be connected in some way with one of the poems in the Book of Readings.
