the leftovers

Here's a look into a poetry project that we did in English class this past year. Students were organized into teams based on the compatibility of their assigned poets (naturalists went together, as did Asian-Americans, despondent women, and so on). My group members and I could find no common streak in the works of Elizabeth Bishop, E. E. Cummings, William Carlos Williams, and T. S. Eliot, so we jauntily united them as 'The Leftovers'. I drew a picture for each poem that we read aloud to the class.

1) Maya chose "One Art" by Elizabeth Bishop. Read it (...Write it!)

2) We spoke aloud, to the best of our abilities, E. E. Cummings's "l(a". Experience this 22-character wonder!

3) Matt recited "This Is Just To Say", by W. C. W. Yum

4) Jonathan presented T. S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock", which you can read here.
