This post is for Blog Group A to respond to, in full, but Wednesday morning (preferably Tuesday night). Blog Group B will comment by class on Friday. Thanks!

In class we noted that the classic emblem structure employs a meditation on “design” after the turn. It addresses the way in which the description in the first part of the poem shows God’s hand (or not). In your response, muse over other interesting directions in which you might turn from a description of the outside/natural/art-object world. Use example(s) from our reading and/or examples from your own practice with this form. What makes this “direction” interesting to you? What do you think that it can offer a poet?
