"World enough, and time"-Andrew Marvell's Coy Mistress

Discuss tone and imagery with Andrew Marvell's "To His Coy Mistress." In an attempt to get his fair lady to consummate their relationship, he write a poem urging her to seize the day! Introduce the author to your high school class, conduct a close reading of the poem, and discuss the tone and imagery he uses. Consider pairing this activity with a writing assignment where your learners attempt to persuade someone to do something with rich tone.

As a graduate teacher I don't have a lot of resources to use in the classroom, Lesson Planet gives me ideas and resources to build up my teaching skills and to help me make sure I am teaching the students the correct information - the first time.
