This slideshow guides students through an analysis of John Crowe Ransom's poem, "Bells for John Whiteside's Daughter." It is designed to introduce advanced analysis by asking critical thinking questions to students as they explore the stanza by stanza. It also explains the three stages of a classic elegy. Slide notes are included in the powerpoint version and are collected in a document to act as a teacher's guide. This also comes with a student handout version of the poem. This lesson is designed to take 15-30 minutes, but writing and other expansion activities are included. Each file is available in both PDF and Microsoft Office form and is fully editable.
