Revision of Ice Storm Found Poem

Return to the found poem for “What Happened During the Ice Storm.” Consider the evolution of the poem “Lottery” and how the revision process removed, changed, and added material that contributed to the final product. The original draft must be attached to the submitted version. Your revision should consider possible changes to:

  • Point of view (from what perspective do we see the poem)

  • Verb usage/tense (can verbs be changed or should their tense - past/present/future) be changed)

  • Word choice (how can words be added/removed/reorganized to create poetic effects - alliteration, rhyme, etc)

  • Structure (how can words/lines/stanzas be organized and broken up?)

  • Title
