POETRY SCHOLARS AT ARK JOHN KEATS

This half term, our Poetry Scholars have been ‘answering back’ to published poets. This project is similar to the challenge set in ‘Answering Back’, edited by the Poet Laureate, Carol Anne Duffy. The poetry scholars have to read poems written by poets from the literary canon and then respond to a chosen poem. The scholars’ responses had to either echo or contrast to the tone, topic and techniques of the original poem. They will present their poems and the inspiration behind them on Monday 11th July.
