Journal Two: Identifying Conflict in Two Texts I will be writing about two poems the first being “The Red Hat” by Rachel Hadas (1994) the second one being “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost (1916). “The Red Hat” by Rachel Hadas In the first poem “The Red Hat” (Rachel Hadas) it is written in the point of view of the mother and she talks about watching her son walk away from her on his way to school on his own for the first time, and how this makes her feel. The conflict is an internal one because she wants him to grow up and become independent, but worries that the son will no longer need her, this hits home because it brings out the emotions and thoughts of all parents as their children grow up and become adults and needing us less and less in their road to becoming independent. The poem uses rhyme, and alliteration to get the points across to the reader to set the emotions and help the reader experience the same feeling. Line 7 “Glances can extend and do” this helps

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
