  • 1.) “In 375 words
    explain the use of enjambment in Thomas Lux’s poem, “A Little Tooth.”
    In other words, what is the effect of Lux choosing to break the lines in

    “In popular culture, Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road Not Taken” is
    thought to be about life choices and choosing one path over another.
    Yet, literary critic and scholar David Orr says that we could be
    oversimplifying this poem and that this poem is actually much deeper,
    much more grave. By closely exploring the word choice in Frost’s poem,
    make a case for Orr’s argument that this poem is about more than simply
    taking one road and not another. In other words, how can this poem be
    read as a deeper philosophical statement about free will or choice?
    Explore your response to these questions in 375 words; be sure to support your ideas with quoted passages and words from the poem itself. Your response must include at least one scholarly source. Be sure to properly cite.

    3.)
    In Suárez’s poem, “Isla” the speaker uses the character of Godzilla to

    (as an immigrant) and the unwanted monster, Godzilla. In 400 words,
    explain how Suárez’s use of imagery and descriptive phrases elicit
    sympathy in you as a reader. Hone in on at least FOUR images/descriptive
    phrases in the poem and be sure to explain WHY/HOW these images effect
    you as a reader. Your response must include at least one scholarly source. Be sure to properly cite.
