Poets and their Poems
An Seventh Grade Pathfinder

"The poet gives us back the world we already know, though it is a world transfigured..." (Carleton Noyes, "Poetry," Bartleby.com) Who are these individuals who have crafted the English language to add their unique perspective on the world and its inhabitants? How do they evoke image and emotion? What were their themes and styles? Choose one individual and explore his or her life. Select a poem and explain how it is representative of their work.

Students should refer to the outline and rubric to guide this project.
