Analytical Life Portrait Of A Poet

Choose 3 or 4 poems from Elizabeth Bishop. You may choose any poems that you want, whether in our eText or from another source, but be sure to use proper citations for each of them. Discuss how the poet’s life has influenced her or his poetry. You may find context from the poet’s childhood, personal experiences, etc. and link them to poems of your choice. Be careful not to give me five pages of biography!  When referencing poems, you may quote specific lines but do not type the entire poem into your essay.
