ENG 311 Creative Writing

posted by .

I am still confuse but this is what I got and I chose poem Snow Day by Bill Collins. Identify every concrete image within the poem. Remember that a concrete image is one that uses either sight, sound, taste, touch, or smell, so each concrete image should be identified as to which sense it connects to. Then, describe what each of the images evokes from you. Be certain to use details from the poem to illustrate your analysis. You may use a list, chart, or narrative for this analysis. Be certain to note which poem you are analyzing.

Lines 1-5:
Snow (taste, touch, sight)
"Snow" as a revolution, which means something new, fresh, different. So in this case, perhaps, it's the first snow of the season.
flag-(touch, sight, sound)
“flag” symbolizes surrender or neutral territory
Mouse (sight, touch, smell, sound)
“Mouse” small mammal belonging to the order of rodents
Blankness

Windows (sight, touch)
“Windows” looking out at something

Lines 6-10
Buildings (sight, touch)

    Keep going. You've made a really good start. This is the part of the assignment you're into now:
    ...[1] each concrete image should be identified as to which sense it connects to. Then, [2] describe what each of the images evokes from you. [3] Be certain to use details from the poem to illustrate your analysis.

    You need to complete your listing. Once you've done that, you'll be ready to decide how you want to present your analysis.

    A. You can keep it in list form, but with lots of detail for each word/term.

    B. You can make a chart (maybe in 5 parts, 1 for each of the senses).

    C. You can write it all up in sentences, perhaps one paragraph per stanza.

    Can you give me an example of what you is talking about because i don't at all if I am doing it right or wrong please. I want to keep the list but I don't know how much detail I have to go into with this assignment because I until 11:30pm. to finish and I don't think I am going to do it by then so please help me.

  • ENG 311 Creative Writing -

    Here's an example:

    Lines 1-5 --
    Snow (taste, touch, sight): "snow" as a revolution, which means something new, fresh, different. So in this case, perhaps, it's the first snow of the season.
    Flag (touch, sight, sound): "flag" symbolizes surrender or neutral territory
    Mouse (sight, touch, smell, sound): "mouse" is a small mammal belonging to the order of rodents <~~add here your personal reaction to "mouse"
    Windows (sight, touch): "windows" allow us to look out at something.

    You're on the right track -- keep going.

    PS -- I removed "blankness" since you had no reaction to that word.
