Join the Library’s discussion of:
- How does Bradstreet use metaphor in other places of the poem and what is the effect of using concrete metaphors to talk about vague or abstract concepts?
- What does Bradstreet assert about the nature of publishing and the relationship between the author, her surroundings and the publication of her work?
- What does this poem reveal about Bradstreet’s view of herself and her role as a woman and poet?
To celebrate National Poetry Month 2012, the Emmanuel College Library will present poems and discussion questions from Mass Poetry’s second volume of Common Threads, “a celebration of poets and poetry with ties to our great state of Massachusetts.”
