    I like the reason you chose this poem, because you are discussing about the racism and bad threatening black people. I’ve read your poem and you pointed out everything important. One of your quotes that stands out for me is “…The poem springs from a particular historical moment/culture specifically, the LA riots in the 1990s. The poem revolves…Read More

  • Dear Nate, thank you for your post. I have read this poem and I think it is really interesting for analyzing. I am wondering what’s relationship this girl has with her father and what makes her hate him so much… You said: “She writes, “You died before I had time—.” Had time for what? ” -I am also confused, time for what? Did they started somet…Read More

    • Dear Jovana,
      I am intrigued by your analysis because you you have descriptively analyzed the poem “There is garden in her face”. I like how you are very detailed in how you talk about the poem and what you went through to create these conclusions.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “ Is the poet referring “cherries” just to her red lips or is it metaphor for woman’s virginity? (“There cherries grow which none may buy”).” I think this is interesting because I can see how you have two perspectives of this line. This makes me think that the line may have maybe even more perspectives that we both have no idea of.
      Your analysis reminds me of when in my class we read a poem called “mushroom” and as a class we talked about the perspectives we have. It was surprising to see that there was a lot of different and interesting perspectives.
      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this analysis was very intriguing on how you were able to understand this poem. You future work it definitely going to be as good as this one.

    • I have never been to New York but your poem made me get excited about hopefully visiting someday! I have only seen it in movies and I can see how such a place would bring you excitement! How does Times Square compare to where you previously lived?
