Poetic Forms

What are some poetic forms that you remember us covering so far during Chicago Kaleidoscopes? What other poetic forms would you like to find out more about? So far we have covered poetic forms such as the haiku, ode, epigram, dramatic monologue (e.g. “Monet Refuses the Operation” by Lisel Mueller and “Jet Arrives with a Monster Inside September 1955, Moms Mabley thinks of her own son” by Toni Asante Lightfoot) and villanelle (e.g. “Do not go gentle into that good night” by Dylan Thomas and “Forty-One Seconds in June, Salt Lake City, Utah” by Quincy Troupe).

How are your poem revisions coming along? How do you see your poems figuring into the chapbooks that you are making? How has your developing understanding of poetic forms helped you to decide what kinds of poems you’d like to write next?
