This is the first in a 9-part series of infographics I’m creating about 17th Century Metaphysical Poets in Britain. I became interested in this subject during my undergrad after taking a class on 17th Century British Poetry. I am an advocate for using poetry in literacy education because it enhances language skills and critical thinking skills. I hope you enjoy the series and my “sketch” of each poet. I drew that by looking at an online picture of the original painting.
