Question description

Pick one of the following poems:

R.S. Gwynn - Skaspearean Sonnet

A.E Stallings - Sine Qua Non

Mark Jarman - Unholy Sonnet: After the Praying

Kim Addonizio - First Poem for You

William Meredith - The Illiterate

Robert Frost - Acquainted with the Night

Edna St. Vincent Millay - What lips my lips have kissed, and where and why

Michael Drayton - Since there's no help, come let us kiss and part

William Shakespeare - Let me not to the marriage of true minds


Now write an explication of its meaning. Analyze it line by line to demonstrate how the author has created its total effect for the reader. Don’t simply paraphrase the meaning—though you will need to do some paraphrasing—but examine and comment on the particular details of imagery, tone, sound, diction, and contents that help shape its meaning. Remember to:

    • Start with the poem’s first line and analyze it to the end.
    • Read it closely with attention to the poem’s details.
    • Show how each part of the poem contributes to the meaning of the whole.
