In what way(s) can point of view help establish one’s chosen persona when writing a persona poem? Would writing in a formal style, or in free verse, alter how one incorporates point of view in order to establish a persona? If so, how?

Persona poems are important pieces of history. These are usually told through the eyes of a person that was going through and issue or problem in our history. These types of poems help us readers understand why the person chose to act as they did and also guide us into their feelings they were dealing with. Persona poems are to give “the inside story from the perspective of someone who, on the exterior, may not be an especially sympathetic character,” (Starkey). When we are able to give a character of history a persona poem, we are able to connect and learn more about not only the character, but the issues or problems that the world was going through. Writing in a formal style would definitely alter how “one incorporates point of view” due to it being more of a stricter writing style. It would leave out the personal emotions and actions that a persona poem has. Hence making it more of a bibliography writing and not a poem with feeling and understanding of the characters actions.

The point of view is extremely important. Persona poems are written in first-person view, to establish who or what the character is, therefore giving that character a “voice”. That character is now telling a story. Without that point of view, in Melissa Range’s poem “The Rope.”, the reader wouldn’t have gotten to truly see the perspective of a piece of rope that is troubled by its uses.
When it comes to formal or free verse writing, I believe that how it’s written can alter the effects of the point of view. Writing a formal persona poem could prove more difficult but, depending on who or what is telling the story in the poem, it may need that proper structure to get the right point of view to the readers. Whereas writing a persona poem about a video game console waiting for its owner to play with it or a poem from the eyes of an infant may sound better in a free verse form. I would consider Melissa Range’s poems “The Harpoon”, where each stanza is a tercet, and “The Rope”, where each stanza is a couplet, persona poems that are expertly done formally and still get the point of view across properly.
Write a poem set in the dark, as suggested in #5 in “KICK-STARTS Beginning Your Poems,” on p. 74 of your eText. Because the visual element will be diminished or missing altogether, focus on one or more of the other four senses: sound, smell, taste, and touch. Don’t worry about revision in this exercise. Have fun with it and see what comes of it.

The tornado has passed but we are still inside.
On the cold classroom floor is where we reside.
Our teacher has returned. I can tell by her smell.
Lavender and cucumber melon, I know that scent well.
The class listens intensively to the instructions of Ms. Mcbride.
She tells us we have to make our way outside,
then wipes the tears from the eyes of those who cried.
It seems that being unable to see is their living hell.
They seem afraid of the dark, but darkness is all I know.
What happened next filled me with pride.
She said “Line up behind Chris.”, and the class complied.
“Can you lead the class to safety?” she asked. She was frightened I could tell.
This will be an easy task since traversing the darkness is where I excel.
I unfolded my white cane and replied, “I will gladly be our guide.”
They seem afraid of the dark, but darkness is all I know.

In the dead of night, I see your face.
I call out to you, as your daughter,
a daddy girl, you were my base.
Stories would gather in laughter.
Coal black hair, side part wave
the half smile grin.
You become the fave.
O what we come have been.
Your values are still here to-day.
Even after many years gone,
your face is still in re-play.
But now you lay under the lawn.
Until the time comes that we meet in Heaven’s yonder,
the sadness in my heart will still wander.
