Selecting a poem

For Thursday’s homework, the A101 students are selecting public-domain poems they find interesting, saying why they find them interesting, and writing a couple of sentences about how they might consider starting to interpret those poems visually, in the form of a film. (Try to include a photo or painting of the poet–any image of them–if you can find one.) Some of these poems will be recorded in a Parallel Octave session on this Saturday, and form the soundtrack for the student films.

Wordsworth and Coleridge.
