English Students Craft Creative Blackout Poetry Inspired by Beowulf
Posted on 11/07/2023
In a unique exploration of classic literature, junior English students in Ms. Rachel Rivera's class recently embarked on an engaging project inspired by the epic saga of Beowulf. They delved into the text, sifting through its verses, and crafted blackout poetry. This exercise involved blacking out all but select words or phrases from the Beowulf text, effectively creating new poems within the existing work. 

The results were remarkable, as students unearthed fresh perspectives and personal connections to the epic tale. By repurposing the language of Beowulf, they uncovered hidden narratives and emotional depths. This creative endeavor not only fostered a deeper appreciation for the literary classic but also honed the students' artistic and analytical skills, making their blackout poetry project a powerful fusion of literature and art.
