Poem #1: Hope, Emily Dickinson
Poem #2: A Crazed Girl, W. B. Yeats
Poem #3: Back From Vacation, John Updike
I am finding that with each poem that I break down, I am having to read it fewer and fewer times to get a complete understanding of it. I guess this is good because when test time comes, I won't have time to re-read the text multiple times until I understand it. I had to read Hope 9 times before I mastered it, A Crazed Girl 8 times, and Back From Vacation 5 times. Just a few more poems and I should be ready!
