Symbolism and Metaphor
By the due date assigned, post your response of at least 150-200 words to the Discussion Area. By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your classmates’ submissions.
Choose a new poem to analyze from the assigned reading list. Do not use one you analyzed in Week 1’s discussion or essay assignment. Use the following questions to develop a paragraph response to your new poem:
- How are symbols and metaphors used in the poem?
What are some of the key symbols and/or metaphor in the poem?
- What are some of the meanings they convey to readers?
- How do these elements enrich the poem and deepen your understanding of its themes?
