Product Description
A detailed analysis of the themes, structure, main character, irony, symbolism, and alliteration of “Miniver Cheevy.” As an addendum to the handout, I have also included a lengthy discussion of Robinson’s intricate use of rhyme in the poem.
Through the activities and exercises in this handout students should come away with an awareness of how the smallest aspect of this textured poem is important. For instance, both the first and the last name of Miniver Cheevy are based on medieval chivalry, the way of life for which the protagonist, a minimalistic Don Quixote, yearns.
My handout, which has blanks which your students can fill in, is suitable as an in-class activity or for homework. An Answer Key is provided on a separate sheet at the end of the handout and is followed by the aforementioned addendum on the use of rhyme in “Miniver Cheevy.”
Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
