Analyze How Structure Contributes to a Poem's Meaning

This Analyze How Structure Contributes to a Poem's Meaning video also includes:

"How does a poem mean?" How do various elements of a poem combine to create its meaning? A series of six videos using Edna St. Vincent Millay’s “Sonnet VII” as the anchor text, models for readers how a close reading of a poem can reveal the elements of a poem that contribute to its meaning. This video focuses on how structure can contribute to meaning. The narrator compares Millay’s sonnet with the traditional structure of a Shakespearian sonnet and notes how the variations contribute to the mean of the poem. Because the videos are sequential and build on previous lessons, viewers would gain the most benefit from viewing all the segments and viewing them in order.
