I'm supposed to do a check-in for Lemon Tree's Narrative Poem Reading Challenge. So it's a good thing that I finally got around to reading one the other day! (Although I then realized that I read "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" aloud with my daughter a month ago. Too late now, oh well.) Lemon Tree asks:
Have you enjoyed any narrative poem this year? Which one?
I'm not sure I enjoyed the chapter of The Trail that I read. It was interesting, it was well worth reading, but it was also difficult and unhappy poetry.
How's your progress through the challenge?
I planned to read four poems, and I've read one, so I'm pretty good I think.
Do you have any plan to read any narrative poem in the near future?
I haven't picked another one yet. So many possibilities! I think I'm going to have to do some Spenser. Or should I try Milton?
