07: Creating a Poetry Anthology STEP 1: OPEN a new document and SAVE it as 5_07 Poetry Anthology STEP 2: MAKE a TITLE PAGE for your anthology. It must have the following items, check them off as you put them on the title page: _____ a title _____ your name _____ the date _____ a quote about poetry. (You may create your own quote, find one from an existing poetry collection, or use one from this module.) STEP 3: COPY and PASTE at least FIVE (5) POEMS that you have written in this module into the anthology. ***Be sure to LABEL the literary devices that you used in the poems*** _____Simile (lesson 5.01) _____Metaphor (lesson 5.01) _____Rhyme Scheme (lesson 5.02) **You must include this one** _____Personification (lesson 5.03) _____Alliteration (lesson 5.04) _____Hyperbole (lesson 5.06) STEP 4: Find 5 other poems to put in the anthology. These poems can be MORE of your own poems OR you can find poems by OTHER poets and simply COPY and PASTE them into the anthology. Be sure to include the author’s NAME under the TITLE of the poem so that I can clearly see WHO wrote the poem. STEP 5: Make an “About the Poet” Page. On this page you will write a paragraph or two about the background of a published poet, or about you. Here is an example: Emily Dickinson, "the belle of Amherst"(the Massachusetts town where she spent her entire life), is almost as famous for her mysteriously secluded life as for her poetry, which ranks her with Walt Whitman as one of the most gifted poets in American literature. She never married, and after age 30 she almost never saw anyone outside of her immediate family. Some scholars believe that this was her response to the narrow literary establishment of her time, which expected female writers to limit their subjects to the domestic and the sentimental. Author of over 1700 poems, only 10 were published in her lifetime, and these without her permission. After her death, however, her sister found and published the body of her work.
STEP 6: Make a Works Cited Page. YOU CAN SKIP THIS PART IF YOU USED 10 OF YOUR OWN POEMS!!! YOU MUST FOLLOW THE FORMAT FOR THE WORKS CITED PAGE PERFECTLY!!!!
