Welcome to the Pantoum Project, a growing gallery of sorts that features student poetry–specifically the pantoum–composed in Creative Writing classes at the University of New England.

Much like the painting below by Belgian surrealist René Magritte, the form of the pantoum is deceptively simple.  What may at first seem like mindless repetition, is in reality a careful, thought-provoking arrangement of ideas that take on new meaning with each new cycle of the poem.  

For a general gist of what a pantoum is, please go here.
