Poetry Explication

Hi Class,

I thought that last Wednesday’s in-class discussion was very productive, and that it was a good introduction to explication. Please look over this example of explication as it does a fine job of getting at the heart of the project: slowly unfolding meaning, paying attention to connotations, metaphors, and rhymes. I hope that it helps you to craft your explications.


Remember that we do not have class on October 10th, which means that this essay is due on October 17th.
