PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

One of Dickinson's most well-known ambiguous quotes was written in a letter in which she described her literary art. She said, "My business is circumference." Critics have generated over 5 possible meaning for this quote. This ambiguity is present in much of her poetry.

This poetry project asks students to compose their own versions of several of Dickinson's poems by imitating different elements she has included in her poetry ranging from theme to rhyme scheme.

The poems listed on this project are:
*The Thought beneath so slight a film
*To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee
*Success is counted sweetest
*These are the days when Birds come back
*Water is taught by thirst
*Some keep the Sabbath going to Church--
*"Heaven"--is what I cannot reach!
*Wild nights--wild nights!
*What Soft--Cherubic Creatures--

These can all be used to create one project or teachers can take individual poems and have students create their own poems in the style of Emily Dickinson.

Although designed for an AP level class, it could also be used in an honors class. If used with a CP class, it would be best to only have students compose one or two poems and not complete the whole project.
