Poetry In-class essay

I'm talking strictly to my students here, particularly in English 1080. Anyone else can go to my other blog at The poetry in-class essays are due on Friday, and I'm not getting the sense that too many people are fretting over it, which I hope is a good sign. I've talked a lot in class about how to go about writing them, but I'll go over the basic idea once more and maybe toss in the occasional hint about how to proceed.

Mr. Brame's Blog: Leonard Cohen, Poet

You may know Leonard Cohen as the cantankerous folk-singer from Canada who wrote "Suzanne" and "So Long, Marianne. " However, Cohen was a poet and novelist years before his recording career began. His career in poetry has spanned fifty years, from the release of his first book, Let Us Compare Mythologies, in 1956, to the release of his latest, Book of Longing, in 2006. He also wrote two novels, The Favorite Game, in 1963, and Beautiful Losers, in 1966.


Open and Closed Form. The structure or pattern of organization that a poet chooses in writing a poem is referred to as being either open or closed.

Open and Closed Form

An open form does not have an established pattern to it, whether it be in line length, meter, rhyme, imagery, syntax, or stanzas. A closed form does have an established pattern in one or more of those areas. You may already be familiar with some types of closed form poems, such as the haiku, a three line poem with a set syllable pattern of 5-7-5 and usually written about nature. Other types of closed form poems include the sonnet, the cinnquain, the sestina, and the villanelle. We will be working with both open and closed forms to become familiar with the advantages of each type.

An open form poem allows the poet to write freely without worrying about trying to make the words fit a specific meter or rhyme scheme. "American History" Michael S. Past Simple ESL Grammar Game - Jeopardy Betting Game. Simple Past Activities by Chris Elvin.

The activities are not just about the simple past, of course, but in order for any degree of success, your students should be familiar with this tense. Activity 1 - How was your vacation?
