Notebook All Levels

Each time you go through this text at Level One, Two and Three, review the eighteen types of occasional verse and five types of elegies and select ones in which you have a personal stake. For some types, like the public or personal tragedy, that may change from year to year. Also, friends, relatives and loved ones —along with public figures — may pass away in the interim and can be eulogized. In any case, come up with ten ideas based on the occasional and elegy prototypes (or combine elements of both). Work out those ideas in your journals by asking yourself basic questions about research, theme, epiphany and ending for all types of occasion poems (along with "principle of life" for elegies).
