Product Description
Lawrence Ferlinghetti, nearing 100 years old, a Beat poet, and founder of San Francisco’s City Lights Bookstore wrote his poem, “In Goya’s Greatest Scenes We Seem to See . . .” In this poem his describes Spanish artist Francisco Goya’s paintings.

There are several links to videos, interviews, and resources for understanding the poem and Goya’s art. Also included in the resource are videos with detailed explanations of Goya’s “The Third of May, 1808” and “Saturn Devouring His Son.” There is an article from Atlantic Monthly on the impossibility of an anti-war art. There is also a link to NPR interviews with Lawrence Ferlinghetti and about a Goya art exhibition in Boston.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities. Now adaptable for ESOL classes.

The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions. I've made the following revisions to this product: I have added an addendum that describes how to adapt the lessons for ELL students.
