Module 7 Discussion: Poets and Images of Family
1 1 unread reply. 1 1 reply.
Overview and Prompt
All three poets in this module created poems about family; some of the images are very positive, like Ortiz’s father, and some of the images are ambiguous or negative, like Rich’s Aunt Jennifer or Roethke’s “Papa.” Take one of the poems and explore the image of the parent or aunt and connect to an image of your parent or relative. How does the poet create a relationship that moves the reader (either for good or ill)? Is this image similar to your parent/relative? How so? You might want to include the importance of the parental figure in forming our youthful ideas about life and culture.
