1.Discussion:

After reading the authors’ biographies and poems, select one poem and discuss the identity of the poem’s narrator based on lines of poetry. In particular, address the following questions:

In the poem:

is the narrator the poet? If not, how do you know this and who is the narrator? Obviously you will probably not know the name of the narrator, but describe the narrator, including all that you know about his/her identity.

What is the narrator’s attitude about war?

Support answers to these questions about the narrator through at least three references to the poem, and include at least one quote..

As in all of your writing for this course, remember to be original in your writing. Do not simply retell information you learned from this week’s sources.

2.Assignment:

For this assignment, you will write a paper that describes the literary connection between two works of poetry from this week and World War I or World War II. The poems you select do not need to have been written during the time of the wars or to be written about these wars specifically. The goal of this assignment is for you to explore the vision of war presented in each of the poems, identify a theme about war that is presented in each of the poems, and take a position about whether each of their themes about war can be viewed as universal and timeless. To accomplish these goals, it will be necessary to support your ideas with quotes from each of the works.
