Rap Poetry - Help!

Discussion in 'English' started by tigerleaf, Feb 15, 2011.

  1. Dear All,

    I have an observation tomorrow and am doing rhythm and rhyme in poetry with year seven. I have used Auden's 'Night Mail' earlier in the term with them, clapping the rhythm,etc. so I can't use this again. Does anyone know of another famous 'literary' poem in rhyming couplets, preferably with a free verse section in it? Or a poem that works well as a rap in general? Or a poem that can be compared with a rap?

    I'm going to get them to say the poem over a rap backing track in order to comment on the effect of the rhyme scheme and then create their own verse in couplets to the backing. I ahve done it with Eminem before with year nine but I think this is a bit strong for year seven!

    Many thanks!
