  • Dear Chloe, I liked your analysis because it a different interpretation i had of the poem. i Got a sense that the poet was visiting or recalling all the memories he had before he dies. The poet probably has an idea that he will die soon. However your analysis is interesting as well as different because you are implying that the poet has already…Read More

    • Dear Keeba,
      I liked your analysis but I think you should write when the poem was written where you first introduce the poem instead of where it is now because it seems like a run on sentence instead of a sentence with an appositive.

  • Dear Nate, thanks for this great post. This poem seems to be very intriguing. Do you think that maybe she had a bad childhood and she probably has been traumatized. When continuing to analyze this poem you should look at some psychoanalytical lenses. They help you to understand how relationships from any point in your life affect you when you get…Read More

    • Dear Keeba :
      I am mesmerised with your writing from your post, “Questions about Baca’s poem,” because i like the topic and how interesting your questions are.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This line makes me question why these things would exist in such a ‘perfect, new world’?” I think this is a very good provocative question you asked and asking questions like that is what keeps the conversation of this poem going. Also the topic of the poem is very very important and I am glad you chose it and talked about it
      Another sentence that intrigued me was: “On the other hand, it’s about people who have only a choiceless choice to make: stay in their country and risk not being able to survive, or attempt to migrate to another place. ” This stood out for me because this is also a very bold statement that i agree with. Immigrants just want the best so they have two very difficult choices
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    Dear Chloe, I really admire your incredible use of imagery. Almost as if the reader and you were at the park at the same time. One of your lines that stand out to me is ” As the sun comes down and it is time for the moon and stars to shine” because I actually tell what part of the day your talking about. I like that you didnt just say it was night…Read More
