My instructor want me to write a paper to define love base on 1 of these poems that were listed above. I have to choose 3 elements that were expressed in the chosen poem and write about them. Then I have to choose 2 other poems (also among these poems) which don’t fit my definiton of love. I would like to choose “First poem for you” is my main poem. Love expressed in this poem is acceptance, understanding and the third one I still not know yet (maybe steadfastness, compromise, commitment or passion…), and 2 other poems maybe “Simile” and “First love: a quiz” . The deadline is Monday, Sep 14th. Here is the outline that I have to follow to complete the essay: 1. Hook -> Introductory -> Thesis (Poem “First poem for you” with 3 elements: acceptance, understanding and…) 2. Talk about element 1 (acceptance) -> 1 Quote from poem (MLA) -> So what? 3. Talk about element 2 (understanding) -> 1 Quote from poem (MLA) -> So what? 4. Talk about element 3 -> 1 Quote from poem (MLA) -> So what? 5. Talk about 1st poem doesn’t fit (“Simile” expresses the fear or the distrust, just pick 1) -> 2 Quotes from poem (MLA) -> So what? 6. Talk about 2nd poem doesn’t fit (“First love” expresses the pain) -> 2 Quotes from poem (MLA) -> So what? 7. Audience. 8. Conclusion. Thank you so much for helping me. I hope to receive the essay from you soon. Best regard.
