wrote in experimental new forms, anticipating the formal experiments of twentieth-century American poetry, and even while Whitman’s poetry contains romantic characteristics, his focus on the American landscape and people kept his poetry separate from romanticism in Britain. Compare and contrast the concerns present in “Song of Myself” and whichever Emily Dickinson poems you choose (at least 3). Aside from their formal qualities, discuss how (if) their work is similar or different, on a content level. Be sure to site textual examples from poems. 4. Both Charles Baudelaire and Arthur Rimbaud work with new technologies in an attempt to represent the new speed, new energy, and crowding cities of industrializing Europe. Choose a poem from of these poets, and describe what techniques you see in the poem that might relate the energetic experience of modernizing Paris. 5. In her poem beginning “As I composed this little book,” Rosalía de Castro writes, “Although my songs may never bring me fame…/ they can be sure-fixed in memory / As are the prayers of rituals of belief” (505).

Her own mind? What in the poetry leads you to your choice of readership, and how does the audience affect how these poems should be read? 6.

    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.
