Choose ONE of the following paired images and poems from the â€œPoetry and the Visual Artsâ€ section of the textbook (NOTE: This is the section with the thicker, glossy pages in the center of the textbook; the pages have letters rather than numbers)
Choice #1: American Gothic â€“ Analyze the painting by Grant Wood and the poem by John Stone. In what sense can Stoneâ€s poem be regarded as an analysis of the painting? Does Stone see Grantâ€s depiction of the two figures as a satire or a celebration? What symbolic elements are found in the painting?
Choice #2: Girl Powdering Her Neck â€“ Analyze the woodblock print by Kitagawa Utamaro and the poem by Cathy Song. What does Songâ€s poem add to the visual information provided in Utamaroâ€s woodcut? What is the relationship of the final three lines to the rest of the poem and what effect does it have on the reader?
Choice #3: Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall â€“ Analyze the photograph of the memorial from the Library of Congress and the poem â€œFacing Itâ€ by Yusef Komunyakaa. What is the significance of the poemâ€s title and how are the speakerâ€s war experiences reflected in the war memorial? Does the speakerâ€s response to the memorial indicate that the conception and composition of the memorial were successful or unsuccessful as a public memorial?
