Discuss the content, context, and structure/form of the poem
Your FIRST paragraph will consist of a discussion of the context. In other words how do the poems fit into a larger contextual element, theme, issue, argument in society? determine the poem’s structure and types? What is the author saying about a specific issue or argument either racially, socially or historically? trying figure out the meaning of the poem and look out for the symbols? look at poet’s choice of words?
Your SECOND paragraph will discuss content and structure of the poems. Things you can focus on: rhyming patterns and the author’s set up of stanzas or lines; specific words, sounds, consonants or vowels that are repeat ed or significant in some way; imagery, metaphorical and/or figurative language used to evoke meaning; determine the voice and tone voice of the poem, determine if poem have storyline?
Form, in poetry, can be understood as the physical structure of the poem: the length of the lines, their rhythms, their system of rhymes and repetition. In this sense, it is normally reserved for the type of poem where these features have been shaped into a pattern, especially a familiar pattern.
Another sense of “form” is to refer to these familiar patterns – these can be simple and open-ended forms, such as blank verse, or can be a complex system of rhymes, rhythms and repeated lines within a fixed number of lines, as a sonnet or villanelle is.
