  • Your poems must contain the 5 features of romantic poetry that we have discussed (ad nauseam). Your classmates will verify their presence after you perform.

  • Your poems should pay special attention (as both Romantic and Slam poets do) to features of rhyme and meter. You should also incorporate sophisticated figurative language (imagery, similes, etc.) and sound devices such as repetition and alliteration to help with the “flow” of your poem.

  • Be prepared to present at least one of your poems to the class. Remember that slam poetry is a performance art – it’s not enough to simply stand there and “read” your poem to the class.
