This paper will trace your reading process of Yeats’s poetry. You will read your chosen poem on three separate occasions and track how your interpretation and understanding of the poem changes with each reading. The final product is a three paragraph, 700-800 word response that explains your understanding and interpretation of the poem after each reading. The voice may be more informal than a traditional paper, but you still must use correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

The Poem that I chose is “The Rose Tree” by Yeats.
