Part 3: Poetry, Folklore, Fantasy, and Science Fiction

 

As you have been learning, each of these genres of literature can enrich the lives of readers in a myriad of ways. Poetry, with its colorful language and vibrant rhythms and patterns, has the power to awaken emotions and promote new awareness through flowing, memorable verses. Folklore, on the other hand, invites readers into the rich tapestry of ancestral cultures, passing along storytellers' tales that have endured for generations. Fantasy and science fiction allow readers to either defer natural laws or consider new and exciting possibilities for the future. Literature within all of these genres can temporarily suspend reality and sweep readers away from everyday life into new worlds embedded in culture and history.

 

This week, you will delve further into the worlds of poetry, folklore, fantasy, and science fiction as you continue to work on the Application Assignment that you began in Week 1. You will add entries to both your Annotated Booklist and Quality Checklist documents.
