There are two parts to this project: one literary analysis essay and one creative component. Project
3 is worth a total of 100 possible points. It is 12% of your course grade. Type each part in the
space provided in this document (scroll down).
Part A: Literary Analysis
Theme is the statement that a work of literature makes about life. A theme may address any
number of issues, including explorations of loss, death, individuality, conformity, emotions, human
interactions with nature, hope, etc. In this exercise, you are going to analyze the themes in a set of
Review the poetry you have read for this course. We started the course with the Modernist and
Imagist poets of the early part of the twentieth century. Ezra Poundâ??s essay â??A Few Donâ??tsâ? was a
commentary on the ways that Modernist poetry should be written. The course then progressed to the
poetry of the Harlem Renaissance, which was an era pioneered by Langston Hughes that opened
the door for African American poets to find their voices and express themselves in poetic forms.
Lesson 8 focused on the poetry of Sandburg and Frost, who showed us two different versions of
Modernism. The Beat Generation poets of the 1950s took poetry to a new level of defying
established writing conventions for poetry. In the 1960s, African American poets used their poetry to
express the plight of the black person during the turbulent times of the Civil Rights Movement.
Finally, we read the poetry of the contemporary artists in which anything goes. They have no set
patterns or topics, and their poetry speaks of the world as they see it.
Select four poems from this course that you believe have a similar theme.
Once you have identified the common theme and the poems about which you are going to write,
note each title on a sheet of paper. Do some brainstorming. Note every way that each poem seems
to address your theme. The poets do not have to say the same thing. One poem may express your
theme in an entirely different way than another, and authors may explore the theme in different
situations. Be creative with this project. Looking for similarities in different poems is a matter of
personal interpretation and opinion.
After you have finished brainstorming, write a 600 word (two-page) essay in which you explain
how each of the four poems addresses your theme. Include background information about the
authors and time period as well as quotes from the poems for support.
The typical essay includes an introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion. The key to
organization is clear structure and strong transitions from one idea to another.
Your introduction will open your essay. You should identify each of the poems you are
writing about and the author of each poem, and explain each poem briefly. Note the common
theme, or idea, in the poems. Finally, state your opinion in a thesis statement. What do you
believe the poems are saying about the theme?
Your body paragraphs will elaborate on how each poem addresses the common theme.
Concentrate on showing similarities between the works. Each body paragraph should begin
with a topic sentence that explains what the paragraph will be about. You must include at
least one quote from each poem to support your thesis. Everything in the paragraph should
relate directly to the topic sentence.
In your conclusion, you will summarize your essay. Briefly recount what you say in your
essay and restate your thesis statement in a different and fresh manner. Finish the
paragraph by noting your thoughts on why your essay is important to the understanding of
Be sure to cite direct quotations properly. For directions about proper use of citations, refer to
the MLA Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publications, which is available in most libraries.
Guides to the MLA Style are available online, and there are guides on pages R21â??R22 of
your textbook and also in your course appendix. For guidelines about grammar and
punctuation, refer to the â??Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics Handbookâ? on pages R46â??R53
of your textbook and to your course appendix.
Part A will be worth fifty points. Your grade will be based on the rubric on the next page.
