Product Description
Detailed analyses of two of Hughes’s most brilliant poems. In “Harlem” (sometimes printed as “Dream Deferred”), the theme, structure, imagery, similes, and metaphors are discussed. The section on its imagery allows your students to identify all five types of imagery and to comprehend how integral they are in “Harlem.” In “The Negro Speaks of Rivers,” the theme, structure, and symbolism are examined. This handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, may be used as a homework assignment or an in-class activity. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout. Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
