40 slide PowerPoint Presentation with detailed analysis questions and answers (on click) for "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd," a poem by Walt Whitman written upon the death of Abraham Lincoln. Close analysis guides students through the three thematic sections of the poem (Lamentation, Transition, Consolation). Questions call for observations of poetic terminology and supported interpretations. Embedded audio recording of the poem being read. This PowerPoint goes along with a handout of questions I made.
