Ezra Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro”

PROMPT: In this two line poem, Pound was attempting to capture a momentary image of breathtaking beauty in the way he imagined a painter would. We know that he scaled this poem back to two lines from its original thirty so that only the most essential elements remained. The poets who attempted this kind of writing were called “imagists.” Here’s a definition from the University of Pennsylvania: “The Imagists wrote succinct verse of dry clarity and hard outline in which an exact visual image made a total poetic statement.” (Check the “Readings/Preparation” area this week for help with this poem).

Billy Collins’ “On Turning Ten”:

From the Poetry Foundation webpage on Billy Collins: “Dubbed ‘the most popular poet in America’ by Bruce Weber in the New York Times, Billy Collins is famous for conversational, witty poems that welcome readers with humor but often slip into quirky, tender or profound observation on the everyday, reading and writing, and poetry itself. . .
