Favorite Poem Project

Norwich Community Members Saying Poems They Love

Inspired by the national Favorite Poem Project, created by Robert Pinskey, the 39th Poet Laureate of the United States, students in Composition & Literature II film various members of the Norwich community discussing and reciting their favorite poem.  All explain something of themselves and their interests as well as their first encounter with a poem that matters and has had influence.

The videos are developed by first studying drama and the ways that playwrights and, ultimately, producers convey point- of- view through production. Students then create storyboards, constructing plot by crafting their subject into individual frames as well as integrating a script. By completion the Norwich University Favorite Poem Project harkens back to Pinskey’s, “celebrating, documenting, and encouraging poetry’s role in American’s lives.”
