Socratic CircleHarlem Renaissance #2•I think Langston Hughes’ “I, Too, Sing America” is the most hopeful.•He’s patriotic and believes that even though he’s being oppressed, he will be “at the table” soon. •When he gets sent to the kitchen to eat, he laughs, does what he’s told and eats to get strong, for he’s extremely hopeful for that one day he’ll be treated equally•He’s so hopeful to the point where he’s full of pride, and when he's equal with the whites, “They’ll see how beautiful I am…And be ashamed”Robert Frost #6•Most relevant today: “Nothing Gold Can Stay” this will always be relevant because it’s true, nothing good ever lasts forever.•Even the most purest things get tainted at some point, like the mold on bread, or like the dead leaf in Eden’s world mentioned in the poem•“So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay” still relevant, the world still has sun-sets, and nothing good lasts forever. Spring leaves/flowers grow, and die in Autumn•Good people die just as much as evil people do•Most irrelevant today: “Out Out” this is irrelevant because in this world, there is no more child labor WAHOO!!!! (unless you look at China)•There are no more children doing “a man’s work, though a child at heart” or dead children from cutting their arm off with an industrial tool. We have laws and morals now
