World Literature Poetry Unit

Blog Poetry

Students (left to right around the table) Maurizio De Bono, Ana Paula Valdes, and Gabby Teran study the poem The Guitar by Frederico Garcia Lorca while listening to classical Spanish guitar music.   While reading Freedom to Breath by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn the students listened to a classical Russian piano concerto.  The world literature poetry unit includes poetry from around the world.  The first part of the poetry unit included Tanka and Haiku from East Asia.  After the European part of the unit, the students will study poetry from the Americas.
