Writing Assignment:
Summarize the five poems in a minimum of 1.5 page. Be sure to cite, quote, document (line numbers for poetry).
Then write a complete 14-line paraphrase of one sonnet in modern English (be sure that the poem is a sonnet). This makes six poems you work with. Finally, write a one-page poetic analysis of the final poem (the seventh), analyzing speaker, listener, use of connotation, any use of irony, any use of hyperbole, other literary elements of your choosing, and theme. Use a minimum of one research source and use two of the author intros.
