Word Clouds

Word Clouds

Find a poem online (or write one!) and create a word cloud out of that. Experiment with the different layouts, colors, and fonts. When you have one you like, save it as a .jpg (you can use the print function to download it as a pdf and then convert to jpg) or just grab a screenshot. post your word cloud in the comments section.

  1. I made a quote that i remembered from the latest James Bond movie Skyfall. M gets up and says
    “Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

    M quotes a passage from “Ulysses,” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

    P.S. I am having troubles posting the picture that goes along with it so I thought I would at least post this much.

  2. OK I’m very sorry to reply like this but apparently my email has never been part of the class, it was just allowed to leave comments, I’ll talk to you in class about it, but this is the only way I know to reply right now:

    I chose a quote by E. E. Cummings because I think a world cloud represents a lot of his style as a poet (very random and thought provoking). The colors go along with the organic ideas of creation and destruction.
