Module 1: Poetry is divided into three sections that focus on imagery, rhythm/meter and tone. In the villanelle “One Art” by Elizabeth Bishop, the poet utilizes all three of these components well to create a compelling poem about the nature of loss. After reading the poem below, please respond to the 3-part discussion question below. Students must post their own responses first prior to being able to review and respond to other students’ posts and responses.
Discussion Question in 3 Parts:
[All three parts of the discussion question must be addressed and answered in one response post. Any material submitted in additional posts in response to the discussion question will not be considered.]
Part 1: Utilizing specific terminology and poetic devices as outlined in Western Wind chapters 1-4, describe and analyze at least three instances of strong imagistic writing in “One Art.”
Part 2: Utilizing specific terminology and metrical information about poetry as described in Western Wind chapters 9-10 and in Course Lesson 2: The Sonnet and Villanelle, describe and analyze the ways in which “One Art” follows and/or challenges the traditional metrical structure/form of a villanelle.
Part 3: Utilizing specific terminology and the vowel pitch chart in Western Wind chapter 7-8, describe and analyze the ways in which “One Art” employs tone and the sounds of words to enhance the poem’s aesthetic experience and meaning.
One Art
By Elizabeth Bishop
The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.
Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.
Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.
I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.
I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster.
—Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident
the art of losing’s not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

Read “PLATO FOR PLUMBERS” https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2014… and state your thoughts on the liberal arts originally being only for aristocracy / upper class, as opposed to now!
You are welcome to “free flow”, but essentially you need to a) reflect that you’ve thought about the ideas in the article and b) convey some idea about why the liberal arts might be important / relevant to the “average student”.

Let America Be America Again
In your response, I’d like you to consider denotation (the dictionary definition of a word), connotation (the associations one brings to a word), and tone (the speaker’s attitude toward the subject matter). What words in particular help convey a sense of determination in the struggle for freedom and equality? What role does repetition play in the poem? How about the use of parentheses?

* Titles of essays, articles, books, and poems – italicize or use quotation marks? Read the difference here – http://grammar.yourdictionary.com/punctuation/titles-using-italics-and-quotation-marks.html
* Refer to an author, poet or artist in your essay first by the person’s full name, then subsequently by the person’s last name. For example, you would mention “Sylvia Plath” initially, then refer to her throughout your essay as “Plath”. See the first entry here – https://www2.bc.edu/~wilsonc/tenc.html
But do not call the persona of a poem or the protagonist of a story by the author’s or poet’s name. The author or poet is NOT the “character” in the story or poem.

CITATIONS FOR SOURCES WITHOUT PAGE NUMBERS
When an electronic source lacks page numbers, you should try to include information that will help readers find the passage being cited. When an electronic document has numbered paragraphs, use the abbreviation “para.” followed by the paragraph number (Hall, 2001, para. 5). If the paragraphs are not numbered and the document includes headings, provide the appropriate heading and specify the paragraph under that heading.

Long quotations
For quotations that are more than four lines of prose or three lines of verse, place quotations in a free-standing block of text and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line, with the entire quote indented ½ inch from the left margin; maintain double-spacing. Only indent the first line of the quotation by an additional quarter inch if you are citing multiple paragraphs. Your parenthetical citation should come after the closing punctuation mark. When quoting verse, maintain original line breaks. (You should maintain double-spacing throughout your essay.)
For example, when citing more than four lines of prose, follow the below example:
Nelly Dean treats Heathcliff poorly and dehumanizes him throughout her narration:
They entirely refused to have it in bed with them, or even in their room, and I had no more sense, so, I put it on the landing of the stairs, hoping it would be gone on the morrow. By chance, or else attracted by hearing his voice, it crept to Mr. Earnshaw’s door, and there he found it on quitting his chamber. Inquiries were made as to how it got there; I was obliged to confess, and in recompense for my cowardice and inhumanity was sent out of the house. (Bronte 78)

When we discussed persona poems, you wrote a response and we discussed Sylvia Pl

When we discussed persona poems, you wrote a response and we discussed Sylvia Plath’s “Zookeeper’s Wife” and Cate Marvin’s “All My Wives.” Here is another persona poem by Plath called, “Morning Song.” Close-read this poem and define the persona in the poem citing from the poem to support your claim. Additionally, as we have done over the course of the semester, discuss the poetic devices used by the poet. Lastly, explicate this poem. In other words, what is Plath imparting to the reader? What leads you to this conclusion? Explain
We read the chapter, “Images” by the poets Kim Addonizio and Dorianne Laux earlier in the semester. They write, “What, exactly, is an image? For most people, ‘image’ carries the meaning of a visual picture, and it’s true that many images are visual. Put simply, though, an image in poetry is language that calls up a physical sensation, appealing to us at the level of any of our five senses” (86). They continue, “An image, when it’s doing its full work, can direct a reader toward some insight, bring a poem to an emotional pitch, embody an idea” (86-87). Keeping these points in mind, go to poets.org or the Poetry Foundation website and look for a poem that possesses imagery as Addonizio and Laux define it here. As you close-read the poem you choose and discuss the devices used as you explicate the poem, focus the most on the poet’s use of imagery in the poem and what the imagery does to convey meaning. Use examples from the poem to support your claims.
Choose a prose poem on poets.org or on the Poetry Foundation website and discuss the devices that make it a poem even though it is not lineated like a traditional poem. Why do you think the poet wrote the poem in the form of a prose poem instead of a lineated poem? Cite from the poem to support your claims.
