Once you have selected your poem & watched the video, please do some research on the following:

the author of your poem [I strongly recommend using Poetry Foundation (listed on the Reading & Writing Resources page) as a starting point for this. Just type your author’s name in the search bar and read the biography/biographies that come up.]
context related to when the poem was published/references made within the poem [For example, “Dulce et Decorum Est” would benefit from research on chlorine gas and trench warfare.]
Please find at least three sources of research. To help you, I have attached a document detailing some places to help you get started:

Create a document that includes:

Your poem and author [list at top as a title for the document]
End citations for each source
1/2 – 1 full page set of notes for each source
Your final document should end up being 2-4 pages in length. This is worth 30 points and 7.5% of your overall grade, so make sure you have done substantial work! To help, I have included an example for a single citation & note set:

***Keep in mind: This is an example of one page. The note set would continue further and stops halfway through an entry!
