Literary Movements Homework

Each of you needs to choose a different literary movement, research it - the characteristics, major themes, styles, employment of literary devices, authors, and bring one example of a poem from the period to share with the class and to discuss. You'll need to post all of these things on your blog so that your classmates can use it to study.

Lit Movements:

Metaphysical Poets
Neo-Classical or Augustan
Harlem Renaissance
Confessional Poets
Beat Poets
New York School of Poets
Black Mountain Poets
Black Arts Movement

Please start compiling note cards of literary devices.
