Oral presentation

posted by .

My teacher gave us a sonnet and he said that we have to do an oral presentation that faithfully interprets the meaning of the poem. Do you have any ideas on how to make an oral presentation describing a poem. Should I explain line by line or just put the sonnet in my own words? please help!

    I'd take it in sections and and put it all into your own words.

    Which sonnet were you given?

  • Oral presentation -

    okay thanks! Its called "Not Marble, Nor the Gilded Monuments" by Shakespeare

  • Oral presentation -

    OK, be sure to read about English (Shakespearean) sonnet in the Wikipedia link. You'll see that this is the rhyme scheme:
    a
    b
    a
    b
    c
    d
    c
    d
    e
    f
    e
    f
    g
    g

    To present it to your class, I'd take it by sections indicated by the rhyme scheme:
    1st - lines 1-4
    2nd - lines 5-8
    3rd - lines 9-12
    4th - lines 13-14

    The rhyme scheme indicates how the poet organized his thoughts.
