Project #11250 - Analytical Essay on Poetry

my budget is $35 . The essay assignment for this week is to compose a paper of at least 800 words in which you interpret a symbol or symbols in one (or two) of the assigned poems. if you are writing about Langston Hughes’s poem “The Negro Speaks of Rivers,” you might mention that Hughes, a famed black poet from the Harlem Renaissance, wrote this poem when he was only 19 years old. Many consider this piece to be a praise poem honoring African American history because in it Hughes traces his ancestors’ experiences back to Africa. Briefly introduce the poet and poem and then clarify your thesis (main claim).  For instance, for the Hughes poem, a possible thesis is: “Hughes’s poem uses the image of rivers to symbolize the black man’s journey across time and continents.” Then, dig in, excerpting and analyzing passages to support your ideas. try to relax and have fun. You need not need to do outside research for this essay. Instead, look at the sample student essays on Mary Oliver’s poem “August” and use your textbook to find other models. Information about the poet and the social contexts surrounding the poem can be found in our textbook.. Arrange your paper in APA style and include in-text and reference citations, also formatted in APA style.  Quoted material should never exceed 25% of the document.
