PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A detailed analysis of Emerson’s most popular poem, “Concord Hymn.” After an analysis of its major theme and its relationship to Transcendentalism, the handout explicates the poem stanza by stanza. The present-past-future structure of the poem is examined.
Not in the handout but incorporated into the answer key is a line-by-line commentary on the poem. These comments deal with the historical event which occasioned the poem, its use of such literary devices as alliteration, consonance, metaphors, personification, and imagery, and a close examination of words and lines where the meaning might be unclear to your students.
I have found that as a teacher I feel more comfortable knowing much more about a poem than is covered in a handout to students. This extra knowledge also makes me prepared for any questions beyond the points in the handout which a student may ask.
My handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, is suitable for a homework assignment or as an in-class activity. As mentioned, a two-page answer key that incorporates much additional commentary about “Concord Hymn” is provided on separate pages at the end of the handout.
Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
