									                                  Bio Poem Assignment

The novel The Scarlet Letter is filled with symbolism: the letter, a rose, weeds, and a
pearl just to name a few. Write a bio-poem about one of the main characters: Hester,
Pearl, Dimmesdale, or Chillingworth, and attach it to a symbol that is appropriate to
his/her character.

                         Include 10 lines and follow this pattern:

                           Line 1: Your character’s first name

                     Line 2: Four words that describe your character

                         Line 3: Lover of...(three ideas or people)

                             Line 4: Who feels...(three ideas)

                            Line 5: Who needs...(three ideas)

                             Line 6: Who gives...(three ideas)

                             Line 7: Who fears...(three ideas)

                             Line 8: Who would like to see...

                                    Line 9: Resident of

                              Line 10: His or her last name

In at least one of the lines refer to some symbol in the book that helps describe the
personality, emotions, or actions of the character featured in your poem.
                                    Sample Bio Poem

Since you all read The Great Gatsby and know the characters in that novel, I wrote a
sample bio poem featuring Daisy as the main character and included the symbol of the
color white in the poem, just as the assignment requires.


                        Alluring, corrupt, careless, and turbulent

  Lover of cool drinks on a hot summer day, men who find her irresistible, and a life of

  Who feels torn between two very different men, despair in a troubled marriage, and
                     happiness when a lost love is rediscovered

           Who needs Gatsby’s love, Tom's loyalty, and Nick’s understanding

  Who gives thrilling thoughts to Gatsby, jealousy to Tom, and the color white a bad

          Who fears solitude, her daughter’s future, and a life without security

Who would like to see an end of affairs, clothing from Europe, and inexhaustible wealth

                               Resident of Gatbsy’s heart
