In poetry, tone is defined as the speaker’s attitude toward the subject matter. This means that in order to fully grasp a poem’s tone, you need to first be able to identify its subject and speaker. For your second response paper, you’ll choose one of the poems below and write a 250+ word original response that discusses the poem’s tone. You should read your chosen poem out loud at least two times. What do you notice? Who is the speaker? What is the subject of the poem? What is the speaker’s attitude toward the subject matter? As you work to identify the poem’s speaker, look to see if the pronoun “I” appears. Be sure not to assume that the poem’s speaker is the author of the poem. Your 250+ word response needs to be double-spaced and in MLA format. It should also include textual evidence that supports your analysis. Please note that your response paper will be submitted through Turnitin, a plagiarism detection tool. Choose one poem from the list below. Below each poem is a list of questions that are intended to serve as a guide. You do not need to include answers to the questions in your response paper. This is the Poem: Hoodie January Gill O’Neil A gray hoodie will not protect my son from rain, from the New England cold. I see the partial eclipse of his face as his head sinks into the half-dark and shades his eyes. Even in our quiet suburb with its unlocked doors, I fear for his safety—the darkest child on our street in the empire of blocks. Sometimes I don’t know who he is anymore traveling the back roads between boy and man. He strides a deep stride, pounds a basketball into wet pavement. Will he take his shot or is he waiting for the open-mouthed orange rim to take a chance on him? I sing his name to the night, ask for safe passage from this borrowed body into the next and wonder who could mistake him for anything but good. These are the questions she wants answered that should be incorporated in the paper. Who is the poem’s speaker? What are the speaker’s concerns?
