Entry Task: Introduce Robert Browning from slideshow
Read Porphyria’s Lover by Robert Browning and analyze it for characteristics of the horror genre.
Examine the setting closely what words are used to create the eerie atmosphere?
Copy the definition of Metonymy and how it is used in the setting to develop the eerie atmosphere

Write based on what you see but also what you imagine--you may create characters or other elements that are not visible in the scene provided
Use at least three of the words provided to describe the scene
Repeat this process through the next 5 slides, passing pictures around at each transition.
Share out your favorite description with a neighbor.
