Your assignment is to write an analysis of a song using as many poetic and literary terms as are appropriate. It is important that when you select the song, you identify significant elements: the form, a theme, imagery, plot, rhyme scheme,
Remember, you are looking at this song as a piece of literature, so you must frame this as you would a discussion/analysis (NOT A SUMMARY). If you would like to make a connection between your song and one of the poems from the text or another song, that is acceptable; however, make sure that all connections are clear and justified. You are not to include any additional research in this essay…just a transcriipt of the song’s lyrics and corresponding Works Cited entry and intext citations
In your introduction, you should state the title(s) of the song being discussed and the artist’s full name. If you refer to the artist again, refer to them by last name. If it’s a band, you’re welcome to just use the band name.
Remember, the songwriter and the performing artist may not be one and the same!
It can be important to acknowledge both depending on the scope of your discussion.
However, your focus needs to be more on the song as a piece of poetry and not on the artist/band/performer/music.
The songs I want to write about are Buffalo Soldier by Bob Marley, or Car Radio by Twenty One Pilots. You can choose one of them.
