Due: Thursday, 26th February
a) Redraft and improve your original Horror-based poems, submitting a FINAL copy on the due-date above. These will be assessed.
b) You should accompany this with a separate self-analysis of the poem, explaining the following:
1. The mood and tone of the poem – what were you going for, and what do you feel the most effective aspect that enhanced this for the reader?
2. The structure of the poem – this could incorporate the literal shape (for those of you going for ‘shape’ poems); the rhyme scheme (if used.. abab / aabbccdd etc.); and how the stanzas were laid out.
3. Any strong imagery or onomatopoeic use, and why you used it.
4. Any poetic techniques you have used, and how each was effective in enhancing the act of reading of the poem, by the reader.
