Hello, my poet friends! So, I recently wrote a poem for school, where I was supposed to take a fairy tale and write it from a different character’s perspective, as opposed to the main character’s. I chose Jack and the Beanstalk by Joseph Jacobs (this is the version I used), and decided to write it in poetry form. Since this is officially my first really lengthy piece, and also one of my first “poem stories,” I guess you could say, I have a few questions. Particularly, how did the end make you feel? Do you feel like there were things left uncleared?
@h-jones That is a really neat prompt! I’ll have to try that sometime! 🙂
I thought you did a good job, and I enjoyed reading it – especially since it was from a different character’s perspective. It was an old well known story, but talking about the woman’s life made it feel newer and more interesting. The ending, (to answer your question) I liked – again especially from the woman’s perspective. I had never really thought about how Jack’s actions effected her. Great job!
And you have a blog? I don’t remember you ever mentioning it before, is it new?
