Now that you've read the works of several Romantic poets, choose a poem from Unit One or from this unit that you connected with in some way. Did Keats's thoughts about living long enough to accomplish his goals resonate with you? Perhaps Blake's ideas about growing up in harsh conditions affected you. Review your notes about the poetry from the first two units to help you select a poem for this essay.
You will submit a five-paragraph essay with an introductory paragraph, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion. In the paper, you should interpret the meaning of your chosen poem and discuss its literary elements. You must quote from the poem in the essay to support your ideas.
Each paragraph should begin with a clear topic sentence. Notice the topic sentences in the essay on pages 848-849. The topics sometimes refer to a section of the poem, but they also explain the main idea of the paragraph. For example, a sentence like The last two lines of the poem say “I rub my eyes: the sky walks the land" does not state the main point of the paragraph, so it would not be a good topic sentence.
When quoting poetry inline with the text, use quotation marks, and use a slash (/) to indicate line breaks. Don't use either one for inset passages. You do not need to inset a passage unless you are quoting more than four full lines of text. Your quotations should mostly be short. See the example of using a slash to indicate a line break in the sample essay at the bottom of page 848.
Read the essay instructions on pages 844-851 of Literature Texas Treasures: British Literature. Note that the professional model on page 845 uses first-person voice. Do not use first-person voice in your essay. Instead, follow the planning model and the sample student essay on page 846-849. Read and follow the tips for good writing and essay structure in the Resources section.
