Greatness is appreciating the layers of poetic word in expressing a complex idea.

These poems were crafted to honor historical events.

But vary significantly in their historical accuracy.

After taking your students through the words, the imagery, the metaphors, and the facts of these poems, challenge them to wonder about the meaning and role artistic expression, like poetry, has in our collective understanding of history by asking, "Should poems about real historical events have less poetic license?"
