Dear Ones –

Here’s the first of six questions.  I’ll try to post one each day for the next several days, and you have until March 20 to respond (but please don’t wait that long!).  Remember, please, that these will count toward extra credit. 

Write a brief piece (200 or so words) about a poet, a poem, a moment in a poem, a phrase, a line, a metaphor, an image, etc… that moved you, or inspired you, or caught your attention in some way from all that we’ve read this semester.  Be sure to quote, cite, and contextualize it–bring us along in our understanding.  Say meaningful, specific, concrete things about the topic you choose.  Describe and explain the feeling it elicit from you.
