Poetry Friday- Poetry Analysis Assignment: In groups of three or four, you are to use the resources available to you to search for a poem that you will respond to according to the parameters of the poetry analysis questions in the handout you have been given. Each member of the team needs to have a copy of your group’s answers to each of the questions that apply to your poem. For this assignment, you do not need to answer question eight on your poetry analysis sheet. Example: Ozymandias By Percy Bysshe Shelley I met a traveler from an antique land, Who said--"Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert....Near them, on the sand, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown, 5 And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; And on the pedestal, these words appear: 10 My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings, Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair! Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away." Written Response to question 7- Sample CEE paragraph for Poetry Analysis Ozymandias- Shelley Claim – Shelley’s poem teaches us that we must live in the now for nothing will remain when we are gone. Set-up – In Shelly’s famous poem, “Ozymandias”, a traveler looks over a statue of a once great pharaoh and remarks, Evidence – “boundless and bare, / the lone and level sands stretch far away” (781). Explanation – The pharaoh that the statue depicts attempted to cement his legacy by building a monument to himself that would look eternally over the civilization that he created as a testament to his power. The statue, along with the civilization itself, decayed as all things must and the irony of his attempt at immortality becomes clear for the narrator and reader alike. The decay of a once great civilization shows that nothing in the future can be counted on, so the theme of the poem is its assertion of living in the present and taking advantage of every moment that we have on this Earth.
