Provide a detailed, succinct, and well-written response to the following prompt, which focuses on works from the M2 – Online Learning Resources page. Your response should be 150–200 words long—no less, no more—which is basically the length of these instructions. You may review any course material before writing your response, including the provided Poetry Foundation guides, though it must be completely your own work and should not include any ideas or wording from this material. Absolutely no outside research is permitted for this assignment! Further, please introduce your chosen work for this response by using the artist’s name and properly-punctuated work title, as modeled in the prompt. After doing so the first time, you may simply refer to your chosen work as “the work” or “the poem” for the remainder of your response. Finally, you are encouraged to review the grading rubric before beginning work on this assignment in order to be as successful as possible.
Reconsider Donald Revell’s “The Northeast Corridor” and Lucille Clifton’s “won’t you celebrate with me”. Based on your reading and the provided material, which of these two poems do you believe better demonstrates insight in regards to its subject matter? In other words, which of these poems seems to have clearer content and/or a “revelation” regarding the artist’s description of his/her life experiences? Why? What specific aspects of this work’s form, based on your current knowledge about form in literature, helped you make this decision? Please note that you may include short quotations from your chosen poem in your response, if relevant and necessary, though they will not count towards this response’s required length.
Donald Revell: “The Northeast Corridor” [American. 1990. Postmodernism]
Lucille Clifton: “won’t you celebrate with me” [American. 1991. Postmodernism]
