As students seem to struggle with this dramatic monologue and miss the covert meanings, I developed this worksheet to point them to specific words that drive the underlying meanings. There are 12 passages used for line study. The worksheet instructions read: For each of the lines below, I have italicized a word or words that are crucial to the understanding of the poem. Explain why each italicized portion is important and any inferences that can be made from the italicized portion. What does the italicized portion reveal about the speaker? You will have to look back to the poem to help with context and the full sentences.
