And we're done. With poetry forms, that is. We completed our last (and most difficult) poem this morning. The villanelle is a bit like the pantoum, but more complex in that it has six stanzas rather than three and the difficulty of the repetition is increased by the fact that the repeating lines need to rhyme.
From what I saw this morning, you all were able to complete this poem with very little difficulty, which is awesome.
Next class we'll continue to work on incomplete poems, genre pieces, and artwork. Next week we'll work on our Letter to the Reader.
