This is a short assignment centered on the poem "The Age Demanded" by Ernest Hemingway. This poem works very well with Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea" and gives the students a chance to encounter similar themes and ideas in a different artistic medium. The assignment asks students to find these connections and analyze the poem using the TP-CASTT method.
WARNING: There is a curse word in this poem; albeit, a relatively tame one (shit), but I wanted to let you know beforehand in case this would be problematic for you.
