Selected Poem Title: When We Two Parted
Initial Response:
What does this poem seem to be about?

 This poem seems to be about a couple that has separated, and one is explaining the sorrow he/she feels. Words: Were the words in this poem difficult or easy to understand? Was there any word or phrase that was powerful to you?

 The words in this poem were easy to understand. The word or phrase I found impacted me was “thy vows are all broken” this indicated that the couple was married. It allows for me to feel the despair the author may be feeling. Images:

Did the poet create strong images?
What could you see, hear, smell, taste, or feel?

 The poem created vivid images for me, I seen a person drowning in sorrow. I felt the heart break that followed throughout this poem. Figurative Language:
What poetic devices were used in this poem?
What did these poetic devices do for the poem?
Did these devices help create imagery or communicate the author's feelings?

 The author used personification in the phrase “That thy heart could forget.” This phrases is giving the heart the humanistic quality of forgetting. Emotion:
What emotion was the author trying to express?

 The emotion I felt the author was trying to express was depression, emptiness, and sorrow. Structure:
How is the poem organized (lines, stanzas, etc.)?
What is unique or interesting about the structure of the poem? Does the poem rhyme?

 What is unique that I have observed is each stanza has exactly eight lines. Yes the poem does rhyme and this allows for the poem to flow smoothly. Meaning:
What is the poem saying about life or love?
Do you agree or disagree with this message? Explain.
Are there any other reasonable ways to interpret this poem?
 I gathered that the poem is saying love can make you or break you. In the authors situation love has broken him/her. He/she has lost their loved one and is deeply hurt by it. Publication:
What kind of magazine or other publication would be the best place for this type of poem? I feel the appropriate magazine for this poem is “Love Stinks.” In this poem the author is talking about love and how he/ she is heartbroken. “Half broken-hearted To sever for years.” This confirms that the author is heartbroken and would agree to the term “love stinks.” Also on the cover of the magazine “Love Stinks” it states, “It’s OK to cry.” In the poem the author makes this statement, “When we two parted In silence and tears.” This statement indicates that the author has shed tears when the separation has occurred. So therefore the author would also agree with the statement, “it’s OK to cry.” Which makes “Love Stinks” the perfect magazine for a poem like this.
