Seniors from the AP Literature & Composition course selected poems from the syllabus. A gratifying experience witnessed, for poetry may not be life, but life is certainly poetry.

Objective: Connect poetry to art.

A soothing atmosphere is perceived when all performed “highest in the room.” From 1794 to 1968, 13 poems from different generations were analyzed in creativity to achieve the ultimate goal: literature appreciation -which propels sensibility and embraces vulnerability.

Thank you for the gift of your presence.
