After reading poems by two authors from this week’s list, chose the most important line in each piece and explain each line’s significance. Your post should be based on your analysis/opinion. For example, why does this line stand out amongst the rest in the piece of literature and what does the line express? Support your explanation of each line’s significance by using at least two literary terms that you have learned in this course.
In your post, be sure to quote each work at least once. As in all of your writing for this course, remember to be original in your writing. Do not simply retell information you learned from this week’s sources.
