Find a poet who appeals to you from a culture other than your own in our text Compact Literature. Why does his or her work appeal to you? Explain your ideas and feelings so that your colleagues can understand why you have chosen this particular author.
*Note that the poet that you choose to discuss in this posting should come from a culture that is different from your own. You need to explain those differences and how they are reflected in the poet’s work. You will have to do a little research for this particular discussion posting, but you can also use your textbook to help you. Make sure to include a specific poem from this poet and explain why you like it.
Once you have examined the cultural elements of the chosen poem, ask yourself: how does the culture in Achebe’s novel impact my understanding of the story? Does your chosen poet bring new meaning to his/her culture? …to your culture?
