Describe three popular poetic forms.
Cento: A cento is a poem made using the lines of others' poetry. Much like the found essay, the cento consists of lines found in the works of others, rearranged together to create a new and separate work. Haibun: The haibun is a Japanese poetic form and consists of a prose poem followed by a haiku. They most commonly describe, in poetic detail, a scene in nature. Shakespearean Sonnet: A sonnet consisting of 14 lines, utilizing iambic pentameter and "abab cdcd efef gg" rhyme structure. They are typically about loved one or something the speaker loves. The final couplet is the poem's volta, or turn, and it often neatly wraps up the work.
Name and briefly describe three popular literary movements.
The Romantic literary movement of the 1800s was largely defined by an emphasis on nature, emotion, and individualism. Victorianism, in literature, is often characterized by the popularity of the novel, as well as general themes of realism, industrialization, and class. British Modernist literature purposefully broke with the old norms of writing in favor of the more abstract. This era saw the rise of stream-of-consciousness writing and an interest in more spiritual themes.
How do you quote another's work while excluding a portion of said quote in an academic essay?
You would use an ellipses (...) being careful not to omit portions of the original quote which are key to the quotes overall meaning. Example: "Oscar Wilde wrote several short stories and the famous novel, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray.'" --> "Oscar Wilde wrote... 'The Picture of Dorian Gray.'"
