1.) Discuss the values exemplified in the poem. Consider, that is, the cultural, moral, social, or ethical norms that either appear explicitly in the poem or are implied by it. Identify those values, relate them to your own, and comment on their significance. See Chapter 10 (pages 501-504) of Literature by DiYanni for more information. 

2.) Analyze the elements (imagery, diction, symbolism, rhyme, etc.) of the poem. How do these poetic elements create and convey the poem’s theme (or themes)? In other words, what is the point of the poem, and how does the author utilize the various poetic elements to get his point across? Be specific. See Chapter 12 of Literature by DiYanni for more information about the elements of poetry. 

3.) Consider the historical and social context of the poem. How did the poet work within and/or against the prevailing social attitudes, moral beliefs, or cultural dispositions of his or her time? See Chapter 31 (pages 1565-1567) of Literature by DiYanni for more information.

Grading: Write a structured, organized essay with a clear thesis statement; paragraphs with unity, development, and coherence; an engaging introduction; and an effective conclusion that reiterates your main points. In other words, write a strong, detailed essay about the poem you choose to discuss. Revise and edit your paper thoroughly before turning it in. Remember, also, to use quotes and otherwise reference your poem, and be sure to cite any outside sources that you reference with both in-text citations and reference page citations)
