Blackout Poetry

Blackout poetry focuses on rearranging words to create a different meaning. The author is supposed to use a permanent marker to cross out words or letters he sees irrelevant to the effect he’s seeking to create. The objective is to devise a completely new text from previously published words, which the reader is free to interpret as he wishes.

In Literary club each member decided to try their hand at black out poetry and the results were extraordinary. For starters each student was given a copy of T.S Elliott’s poem The LoveSong of J.Alfred Prufrock (T.S. Elliott) and with its aid, created wonders. However that wasn’t all. Later they took things ranging from newspaper articles to dry science articles and turned them into beautiful literary works.
