In this Challenge, students are presented with three modern poems that have been published in a major literary magazine within the last few years. Each poem offers up a visceral vision that, like many quality poems, can be interpreted and enjoyed both on a universal and personal level. Each team must choose one poem – or a poem of your choice (but for in-class comparative purposes and discussion, we recommend working with just the three poems on offer) – study it, debate it, and find its lyricism, meaning and ambition. Then, create a visual video interpretation of their select poem to accompany a recitation of the poem. The visual content of the video is up to the team. It can be moving picture; a montage of stills; shots of the poem’s reader; all of the above – there are no boundaries to the visual interpretation. Music may be used to underscore the work.
