You will research a single poet and write a scholarly 3-5 page essay (double spaced, 1 inch margins, header, etc. MLA) on your poet and his/her writing. You can focus on what influenced the poet, common themes in his/her work, etc.
Obviously, you will need to research biographical material about the poet and some of what the poet has written (at least 3 poems). Consider which writers influenced your poet. What events would have impacted his/her life and writing? What themes dominate your writer’s work?
Example: How the author’s poetry was influenced by BOTH the author’s personal history AND the literary movement of the era. The common themes AND styles of the author as reflected in his/her writing.
