Poem analysis


construct a literary analysis essay of the poem you outlined in Task #3. As you have learned, a literary analysis is a formal essay that explores how an author uses literary devices to achieve meaning in a poem. You should provide your own interpretation and explanation that uses support from the poem only. Make sure you integrate and document quotes from the poem correctly. I expect you to apply everything you have learned thus far concerning writing about literature.


An introduction that ends with a strong thesis statement that argues for a specific interpretation of the poem
Three body paragraphs that explore literary devices that the writer uses to achieve meaning
Incorporation of material from the poem
Appropriate documentation of material using in-text citations
A conclusion paragraph that ties the entire essay together
An appropriate title
