The final exam will require you to write a standard essay in two hours. It should demonstrate all that you know about writing itself and about the essay form. The prompt is about poetry generally and asks for personal reflection. It would be good if you could quote from a few poems, the only website we’er allowed to use are poetryfoundation.org and poets.org and print out poems that interested you and that you might want to quote and discuss in the paper. You may keep those copies with you during the exam.
