Sonnet Introduction Day

Agenda:

  • Analysis of Millay Sonnet: http://www.folger.edu/documents/What%20My%20Lips%20Have%20KissedMillay.pdf
    • What sonnet features does it possess?
    • What could you use to talk about the deeper meaning on the AP exam?
  • Analysis of Heaney's "The Forge"

Homework:
  • SIFT on "The Man in the Black Suit"
  • Write an essay in which you analyze how the character of the blacksmith in "The Forge" is developed through devices such as structure, motif, and point of view.  
    • If you use structure, please be more specific than saying just "structure" in your essay.  Please refer to specific structural devices.
    • Give yourself about 30-35 minutes to write you essay since you started looking at the poem in class.  Make this as authentic to AP time constraints as possible.
