Hi folks! Today, you’re going to read and annotate two poems by Margaret Atwood. We want you to keep refining your poetic analysis skills in preparation for the AP exam!
Hi folks! Today, we’re going to study the dystopian poem, “September 1st, 1939” by W.H. Auden.
First, read and annotate the poem.
Next, in groups, decide where the tonal “chunks” are and cut one of your poems apart into these chunks and tape it onto a white board.
On the white board, label the poem with the following:
- An adjective to describe each chunk
- For each chunk, a list of literary devices used and their effect
- An analysis of the title
- A sentence which states the theme.
- Be sure to always pay special attention to the first and last lines in all poetry!
We’ll be doing a gallery walk so you can see each other’s interpretations.
