Listen to  We Real Cool  and  My Papa’s Waltz . These clips demonstrate the importance of performance,  rhythm, and musicality in the poetic form.  Describe your listening experience of one or more of the poems. (If you prefer, you may  find a recording of another poem from the course readings and describe your listening  experience of it instead. If you choose this option, be sure to provide a link to the audio  of the chosen poem.) How did hearing the text(s) recited aloud compare to a silent  reading of it/them? Did the performance in any ways add to or detract from your  experience of the text? Did the performance change your perception of the poem or its  content in any ways? Explain how (or how not).  Support your ideas with textual details and analysis. When applicable, address how  specific literary techniques and/or devices contributed to your experience?
