ENGL 2363 Name: Kourtni A. Brown Worksheet Poetry of Angel Island (four poems) 1. After reading the poems, what do we learn about the backgrounds of the immigrants who left their carvings on the walls of Angel Island? (Where are they from? What is their social status? Educational level? Occupations? What forced them to come to America?) What mo- tivated people to leave their poetry there? What images and symbols reappear in the poems and how do they reflect immigrant experience within the barrack walls of Angel Island? What characteristics of American Immigrant literature can be applied to these poems? Use the chart below to answer these questions. Be ready to use this chart in class. 2. Based on these poems, what do we learn about Chinese culture? What does it tell us about immigrant experience upon arriving to America? Their immigrant experience wasn’t what they expected at all. Some were locked up in prisons, most were mistreated and had nowhere to turn to. They were anxious and depressed, and free- dom was stolen from them. It wasn’t what they expected when they immigrated to America.

    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.
