Make minor editorial changes in the quotations to improve the clarity and artistry of your poem: remove/re-sequence a quotation, omit a word, add a word, change word endings for tense or number, add/change articles¸ etc. Consider your choices related to punctuation, capitalization, line breaks, stanza breaks, indentation or spacing to increase effectiveness. Do NOT make any editorial changes which change meaning. Your goal is to be true to the themes of the novel.
