Mr. Henningsen's Lament for the Makers project asks you to select one poet from the book, Lament for the Makers, assembled by W.S. Merwin, with Merwin being one of your choices (or one of the two additional poets added by your teacher) and gather biographical information on that poet. You are also asked to select one additional poem in addition to the poem in the book to present. Details of your assignment are outlined in the handout you received in class.
Use this guide to find more information about your poet and to link to useful reference tools and websites to learn as much as you can about their lives and their poetry. JBS librarians are happy to help you locate materials and select the best links for your chosen poet.
