Product Description
Former Poet Laureate Billy Collins writes approachable poetry with humor, grace and depth. Collin’s take on the sonnet not only helps explain the rhyme scheme and rigid structure but also celebrates the sonnet by gently satirizing it.

This lesson is designed for students to write with greater depth regarding the poet’s tone and purpose. The student analyzes poetic devices and recognizes a speaker’s voice in poetry. The lesson plan includes links to a TED Talk with Billy Collins, an original annotated reading of the poem (video), a timed write prompt and student sample essays.

Key words- AP Literature, American Literature, Elizabethan, Petrarchan, sonnet, poetry, poetic structure, satire
