For this project my teacher gave us a poet and asked us to write a short page about them, show an example of two poems by them and do something creative relating the poems.  My poet was Robert Lowell and the two poems of his that I chose were "Skunk Hour" and "Home After Three Months Away".  I have uploaded them, along with the rest of my project.  This includes the short biography and my creative part of the project.  For this part I created a short video, which includes music that depicts the feelings that Lowell likely felt when writing his poems. determined from the poems themselves and from his life. The second creative piece of my project was a collage which depicts juxtaposition in the poems.  I created the collage by taking pictures of exact words or phrases that Lowell used in the poems and put them together to show how he used contrasting words and imagery to highlight his main points.
