Be sure to use evidence (support) from the poem by quoting and by using a parenthetical citation -- NOTE: there are two acceptable methods of citing a poem: e.g., the speaker attempts to convince himself of a deeper meaning more than once, such as by stating that "the other" road has "perhaps the better claim" (Frost 856). OR by citing the line numbers: (Frost 9-10).
- Note that MLA requires a slash (/) to denote line breaks for poems, which can be interesting for some poetry, e.g.:
The minimalist speaker refutes capitalization and grammar standards to directly state, "i carry your heart with me(i carry it in / my heart)" (Cummings 1-2).
- In this case, the poem's first two lines are: "i carry your heart with me(i carry it in / my heart)i am never without it(anywhere" (1-2). The first full stanza reads:
- my heart)i am never without it(anywherei go you go,my dear;and whatever is doneby only me is your doing,my darling)
- Please follow the punctuation and capitalization of your poem as it appears originally in the text; merely insert the slash (/) to denote the line break.
Remember that we are citing the author and the textbook more fully in our major essays; no Works Cited page is needed for any Discussion assignment, but a parenthetical citation should appear when appropriate.
Write a 250-word response answering the following:
- Compare and contrast to the two poems' tones (attitudes towards their topics). How do the two poems differ regarding warfare? Specifically, what are the key differences? How are the two poems' tones (attitudes) similar (specifically)? (Remember that Owen's speaker is not advocating against warfare, as he is not deserting his duty; rather, he points out the horrific, inglorious manner in which one dies for one's country during the rampant chemical warfare of World War I, which differs greatly than the glorious nature taught to children, presumably himself included).
- Your original post must be at least 250 words.
- You should be specific and reference details from the text for your answer. (See the note above regarding how to format citations).
- Use a / to indicate a line break when citing poems; see our textbook and online writing (Links to an external site.)center for more information.
- Each of your posts (original and replies) must demonstrate your understanding of the topic.
- You must use full sentences and proper grammar.
- Use the third person objective (no first-person "I" or second-person "you")
- Use the literary present tense (the narrator states, not "stated")
