Poetry Grading Key (EN 2203):

1. Your explication essay should focus on one, two, or three of the following elements of poetry: word choice, imagery, symbolism, voice, tone, sounds (including rhyme), or figurative language. You should be able to connect the elements to a primary theme that should be the focus of your essay.

a. Your argument should be that these elements work together in order to create a specific impact on the poem or its

characters or its theme.

b. Please do not make reader-focused arguments. These tend to be weak, subjective, and difficult to support with

textual evidence.

c. Please do not make hypothetical arguments (If…then…)—these are also weak, subjective, and difficult to support

with textual evidence. Focus on what the text CAN support.

2. Your organization pattern should be logical and clear.

3. Length: 3-5 pages, plus a Works Cited page (not a separate document—WC page should follow the essay).

a. The minimum is three FULL pages—not 2.75 pages.

b. Please do not go over the limit; edit and revise until it is within the page limit.

c. Do not finagle margins/spacing, etc., to meet the minimum page limit—follow MLA formatting!

4. Typed in MLA format—see previous handouts and look at links on MyCourses for help.

5. You are taking a stance, but you should not be ranting. Stay calm in your essay. Do NOT use sarcasm.

6. Be careful of fallacies! Your reasoning should be solid and should consider multiple angles.

7. You may NOT use 1st or 2nd person in the Poetry essay—only the Academic 3rd—unless your source is using 1st or

2nd person, and you’re directly quoting the source.

8. You may not use contractions unless you are quoting the poem and the poem uses contractions.

9. You must use present tense when discussing the poem and when presenting your argument.

10. You may NOT use any sources in your essay. You must base your argument on your analysis. You are doing a

close reading of the text, which means you should focus on the text of the poem and the logical inferences you make

from the text.

11. You should be breaking down your analysis enough that you should NEVER quote more than three lines of poetry at

     a time. 

Anything more than three lines should be a block quote, which you should not be using in this essay.

Use forward slants to show line breaks ( / ) (when you’re quoting more than one line of poetry at a time).

You must include direct quotes from the text to support your argument.

You must introduce each quote—don’t drop/float quotes. You must introduce it with an attribution tag (The speaker explains) or with an idea/analysis (The speaker demonstrates the balance…).

Your quotes are the seasoning of your essay–not the meat. Only 10-15% of your paper should be made up of quotes. Consider using 2-3 quotes per element/paragraph, but no more.

You must include a parenthetical citation each time you use or refer to your source (the poem) (in-text citations), including paraphrases and summaries. Ex. The speaker states, “A silence slipping around like death, / Yet chased by a whisper, a sigh, a breath” (Grimke lines 1-2). Ex. The personification emphasizes the true loneliness and bareness of winter woods: “One group of trees, lean, naked and cold, / linking their crest ‘gainst a sky green-gold” (l. 3-4).

You must cite the poem appropriately (in-text and Works Cited).

You will need a Works Cited page to cite the poem that you write about in your essay. Cite the poem as a “Selection from an Anthology,” according to MLA style.

You must include a Works Cited page in proper MLA format.

13. You should provide an intriguing introduction that draws in your reader. Don’t just summarize or generalize the argument. Your introduction should be a minimum of 5-7 sentences, including your thesis.

a. Do not spend your whole introduction (or your essay, for that matter) summarizing the poem. You should assume that the reader has read the poem. Plot summary will result in a failing grade!

b. You may spend no more than three sentences summarizing the poem if you must, but no more.

c. Your thesis should come at the end of your whole introduction.

Anything more than three lines should be a block quote, which you should not be using in this essay.

Use forward slants to show line breaks ( / ) (when you’re quoting more than one line of poetry at a time).

You must include direct quotes from the text to support your argument.

You must introduce each quote—don’t drop/float quotes. You must introduce it with an attribution tag (The speaker explains) or with an idea/analysis (The speaker demonstrates the balance…).

You will need a Works Cited page to cite the poem that you write about in your essay. Cite the poem as a “Selection from an Anthology,” according to MLA style.

You must include a Works Cited page in proper MLA format.

     title should be something that reflects the nature of your essay, and it should be provocative and/or entertaining.

a. You must include the author and title in your title. However, your whole title cannot be the title of the poem.

b. Don’t do this: John Donne’s “The Flea”

c. Do this: Symbols and Conversation in John Donne’s “The Flea”

d. Poems have quotes around them—they are NOT bolded, italicized, or underlined!!!
