Poem Assignment #2 of 5: Create a Monody

A monody is a poem in which one person laments another's death, as in Tennyson's Break, Break, Break, or Wordsworth's She Dwelt Among the Untrodden Ways.


  1. Choose a famous person to do a little research about. Maybe you already know a lot about someone famous?
  2. Make a list for your pre-write about that person's life, and include details of how they died and how people reacted to their death.
  3. Compose a Monody about that person.
