This slideshow guides students through an analysis of John Donne's poem, "A Valediction Forbidding Mourning." It is designed to introduce advanced analysis by asking critical thinking questions to students as they explore the stanza by stanza, followed by detailed examples of annotations and poem analysis. This also comes with a pre-test to give before studying the poem, as well as a student handout version of the poem. This lesson is designed to take 15-30 minutes, but I've included some writing prompts and creative project ideas to expand on the lesson. Each file is available in both PDF and Microsoft Office form and is fully editable.
