OUT-OF-CLASS ESSAY 2 TOPICS
Out-of-Class Essay 2 is due on Friday, November 10, 2017. It should be
approximately 500 words long (minimum). Don’t forget the requirement to use at least
one secondary source (in addition, of course to the primary source(s). The secondary
source you use should be one that is credible and scholarly. Document properly; use
MLA format. Ensure you submit your pre-writing (outline and thesis statement) as well
as your rough draft that shows evidence of thorough revision. Attach this requirement
sheet, and don’t forget your signed USCA Honor Pledge. Choose one of the topics below.
1.
Using any poem from Chapter 10 in Backpack Literature, analyze the
speaker’s attitude toward the poem’s main subject, that is, how the poet uses this
tone to help show theme. Support your argument by examining the author’s
choice of specific words and images to create the particular tone used to convey
the speaker’s attitudes.
2.
Analyze the tone of two poems on a similar subject; for example, compare and
contrast Walt Whitman’s “To a Locomotive in Winter” (p. 382) and Emily
Dickinson’s “I Like to See it Lap the Miles” (p. 383). Perhaps you might like to
compare and contrast Rupert Brooke’s attitude toward war in his poem “The
Soldier,” reprinted on the second page of this topic sheet, with that of Wilfred
Owen in his poem, “Dulce Et Decorum Est” (p. 398). Ensure that your
comparison has significance and is not simply a rendering of similarities and
differences.
3.
Analyze how a single word or phrase contributes to a poem’s total impact. Begin
by choosing a line or two from any poem in Chapter 11 that you particularly like.
Then select a key word or phrase and explore how it helps shape the poem’s total
meaning. As part of your analysis, rewrite the line by substituting a synonym in
place of a single important word. Discuss what is lost by the substitution.
4.
Choose a poem that strikes you as particularly inventive or unusual in its
language, and write an analysis of it. Concentrate on the diction (word choices)
of the poem. For what possible purposes does the poet depart from standard
English or incorporate unusual vocabulary?
5.
Write an analytical essay explaining why the speaker in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s
“Tears, Idle Tears” (p. 427) is weeping. Although the speaker claims not to know
what the tears mean, the poem’s language and imagery suggest some compelling
reasons. Support your theory with specific examples. Be sure to differentiate
between evidence that the poem explicitly provides and where an idea or event is
only suggested.

6.
Analyze a poem full of words that radiate suggestions. Look into the section of
your text titled “Poems for Further Reading.” You might consider T. S. Eliot’s
“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” Sylvia Plath’s “Daddy,” or others. Focus
on particular words; explain their connotations, and show how these suggestions
are part of the poem’s meaning.
7.
Choose any poem in the text and analyze how imagery helps to communicate the
general theme. Be specific in noting how each key image contributes to the
poem’s total effect.
8.
Choose any poem in the text and analyze how figurative language helps to
communicate the general theme. Be specific in noting how each figure of speech
contributes to the poem’s total effect.
9.
Consider the verbal music (sounds) in a selection from “Poems for Further
Reading” (Chapter 22). Analyze the poem for language with ear appeal, and
explain how the poet uses those sounds to help with his or her theme and the
poem’s overall effect.
10.
Compare and contrast Dylan Thomas’s “Do not go gentle into that good night”
(p. 506) with Wendy Cope’s “Lonely Hearts” (p. 413). In your essay, discuss how
it is possible for the same form to be used to create such different kinds of poems.
11.
Select one of the definitions of poetry from the list on pages 558-559 of
Backpack Literature, and defend its selection as the most accurate by using any
number of poems in the text to support you position.
For Use With Requirement #2
The Soldier
–Rupert
Brooke
(1887-1915)
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed:
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made award,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England’s breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven
