We're AP Lit Nerds and Loving It: February 3, 2014

Focus: What does it mean to lose something, and what it does it mean to reclaim it?

Please turn in your poetry responses.

1. Trying out a little found poetry with some help from Elizabeth Bishop and Billy Collins

2. Using fragments from Beloved to create a poem and to tell a story

3. Perusing our gallery of found poems:

  • In Beloved, what is lost?
  • What do the characters want to lose?
  • What do they wish to reclaim?
  • What is found?
  • What has the potential to be found?

3. Viewing the Baby Suggs scene: What is being reclaimed, and how?

1. For tomorrow, please read through Chapter 1 of Part 2 in Beloved. As you read, keep adding to your list of words and phrases. Google share this document with me at

2. Keep reading your critical review book
