Complete this week’s Journal before starting this assignment.
1. Using “Home Burial” and your answers to this week’s journal, weave a story based on Bruegel’s painting (above) “Landscape with the Fall of Icarus.” Be as imaginative as you want to be. Your “narrative” should be written in free verse (see my video for “Writing Narrative Poems”: https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/663739909/695e9aff0b).
2. Poetry is often the density of the human experience; therefore, heighten the rhetoric of your poem, include details, use figurative language (your five senses), and incorporate ideas and symbolism (concrete images that represent feelings — a heart means “love”).
3. Read aloud. Are there any areas that need editing (language-wise)?
4. Only worry about punctuation if you feel like you have a grasp.
