Question Description

TOPIC: Please write a 4-5 page essay (approximately 800-1200 words) in which you describe your process of reading and evaluating poetry from the 2018 Red Wheelbarrow National Edition. Please articulate your criteria for good poetry in this essay and provide examples of poems from the magazine that meet those criteria! See below for hints and details for writing this essay.

You are welcome to either adopt or depart for the following essay structure:

1) Your opening paragraph should acknowledge that you are an editor-in-training, reading the 2018 edition of Red Wheelbarrow in order to examine and explore more clearly what you most appreciate in poetry.

  • In the opening paragraph, give us a sense of what you have been learning during the process of reading the poems, responding to them, and discussing them with classmates. In this paper, you can emphasize your own discovery, change, and a sense of journeying toward a clearer understanding of your criteria through this process.
  • In other words, start with something like this (in your own words of course!) “My first time reading through the Red Wheelbarrow 2019 National Edition, I felt [this way] about which poems I liked. I knew that I preferred poems that were _____, _____, and _____. I still feel that way to a degree, but now, as I’ve read through the magazine more than once and written about and discussed various poems with classmates and the professor over time, I’ve also come to the conclusion that ______ and ______ might also be important criteria for evaluating poetry. My current feeling is that I especially appreciate poems that feature some or all of the following: [and then articulate your thesis here].
  • Then say in a formal way which poems you will look at in the essay to illustrate what excites you in poetry, and what you’ve learned in this unit.

2) Remember to write about approximately three different criteria that describe what you like in poetry, and to illustrate your criteria by specifically quoting from three poems in the book. Consider:

  • In what way (why and where exactly) does the poem move you?
  • For example, is it the voice that grabs you? The choice of words? Various levels of surprise? Of craft? The imagery (figurative or literal)? The sensory language? Is it some double-layer of meaning—perhaps one more universal, and another dependent on social context (race, class, gender, nationality, culture, social marking, prison, etc)?
  • Whatever your criteria, articulate it carefully and illustrate each one.
Remember, you'll need to quote from poems to give examples of your ideas. In terms of format, use slash marks for line breaks “Like as the waves make toward the pebbled shore/ so our minutes hasten to their end…” — and double slash marks (//) for stanza breaks.

Poetry evaluation of the 2018 Red Wheelbarrow National Edition
The Red Wheelbarrow National Edition is a magazine established for the purpose of
celebrating poetry from different underdog poets, especially students. I am read through this
magazine as an editor-in-training. I came across different poems with different forms and
structure that made me realize that poetry is a form of art that cannot me bound to rules and
regulations. Most of the pieces had their own unique style and themes. I was surprised to get a
taste of how much talented poets are sitting on their poetic talents out there. I used to have a
preference to poems that are predictable and have a uniform structure but the Red Wheelbarrow
changed my opinion.
The poem the first poem that caught my eye was Issue by Ruby MacRae. This poem...
