Project #34868 - homework 3 part 3

To successfully complete this week’s discussion, “Reading Response: Poetry and Performance,” listen to the following poems:

  • We Real Cool (Listen to this recording of Brooks’ speaking about and then reciting her poem "We Real Cool." When listening, consider how the recording conveys a sense of Brooks as a person and a poet and how her world outlook and experiences have shaped her writing. Also listen for how sound, rhythm, and musicality give life to the poem.)
  • http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/we-real-cool
  • My Papa’s Waltz (Listen to Roethke’s “My Papa’s Waltz.” Again listen for how sound, rhythm, and musicality give life to the poem. Also consider the relationship between the poem’s sound and its subject matter.)
  • http://www.poetryarchive.org/poem/my-papas-waltz
  • Reflecting on this week’s literary readings, as well as your own reading experiences, identify at least one major similarity and one major difference between the forms of the short story and the poem. How do the differences between these literary forms affect how you read and respond to them?
     
    In your response, include an example of at least one poem from this week’s readings. Describe the connections between (a) the poem’s form and/or use of literary devices and your experience of the poem and (b) your reading experience (see key literary terms listed in our textbook – e.g., alliteration, rhyme, iambic pentameter, etc.). If you wish, you may also compare your experience of the poem to your experience reading a short story that shares with the poem a similar theme.
     
    Initial posts must be 200 to 300 words in length and posted by Day 3. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. In your response, indicate what you have learned from your classmates’ answers and share how their responses have improved your understanding of literature, literary devices, and textual analysis. Be specific in your responses. Response posts must be 125 to 200 words in length and posted by Day 7.

 

2.

Listen to We Real Cool and My Papa’s Waltz. These clips demonstrate the importance of performance, rhythm, and musicality in the poetic form.

Describe your listening experience of one or more of the poems. (If you prefer, you may find a recording of another poem from the course readings and describe your listening experience of it instead. If you choose this option, be sure to provide a link to the audio of the chosen poem.) How did hearing the text(s) recited aloud compare to a silent reading of it/them? Did the performance in any ways add to or detract from your experience of the text? Did the performance change your perception of the poem or its content in any ways? Explain how (or how not).

Support your ideas with textual details and analysis. When applicable, address how specific literary techniques and/or devices contributed to your experience?
