How is resilience demonstrated by this poem? Resilience is brightly shown on this poem as he kept creating and demonstrating his ability to overcome old schools of thoughts. Once again, despite all the hardship found on his pathway, he spoke up and his art found a way to thrive over those concealed behind the mask of oppression.. Compare your poem to Audre Lorde’s poem “A Litany for Survival.” How are they similar? Different? As she mentioned “I started writing because I had a need inside me to create something that was not there”. And this search to create something different is deeply related to the poem "I look at the world" as the former also wants a different world that is not there (yet). During several passages Audre Lorde also express all the damaged caused by oppression, as in We are afraid whether the sun rises or sets / we are full or hungry / we have love or not / we speak or stay silent. As Hughes also expressed that “Nobody’ll dare” to oppress another person again. 3 Copyright © 2018 The Ontario Educational Communications Authority. All rights reserved.
