Once you have selected your poem & watched the video, please do some research on the following:

the author of your poem [I strongly recommend using Poetry Foundation (listed on the Reading & Writing Resources page) as a starting point for this. Just type your author’s name in the search bar and read the biography/biographies that come up.]
context related to when the poem was published/references made within the poem [For example, “Dulce et Decorum Est” would benefit from research on chlorine gas and trench warfare.]
Please find at least three sources of research. To help you, I have attached a document detailing some places to help you get started:
