The poem was written in a time where black people and women were dehumanized where those in power abused the power to gain more and those without power were continuously affected by it. Reading the poem and had an impact on me with the dictation of lexis, however all of these feelings were heightened when I listened to the oral performance. The poem starts of in the present tense “Even tonight and I need to take a walk” (Jordan 1) which gives a setting to the scene, in the opening few lines Jordan uses the repetition of “I” and “my” which made the poem for me more personal, the use of repetition in the opening part of the poem produced a deeper connection to the poem, repetition of the words placed emphasis and clarity of the words which came after “my body posture my gender identity my age…” (Jordan
Moreover, The book “Warriors Don 't Cry: A Searing Memoir of the Battle to Integrate Little Rock 's Central High” by Melba Pattillo Beals is a history packed memoir that every American should read.

"Tomorrow, I'll be at that table, when company comes. Nobody'll dare say to me, 'Eat in the kitchen' then." Another excellent example of a poem would be "The Negro Speaks of Rivers", once again by Langston Hughes. In this poem, a Negro speaks of all the things his people have seen as a whole. He "remembers" all that his people have been through, and what they have done throughout history.
I attempted to eat some mashed potatoes, hoping that they wouldn’t cause me to puke, but as I felt bile rising in my throat, I wisely thought that it would be better if I didn’t attempt to eat anything else for the rest of the evening. For the rest of the night, I watched my relatives put the glorious food on their plates, and stuff their mouths with dessert with their insatiable appetite, and I repeatedly asked my parents if we could go home so I could wallow in peace. After what seemed like eons, my parents agreed to bring me home. Because I didn’t eat any Thanksgiving food, I sulked in the car all the way home. Little did I know that my day would soon worsen and take a turn for the worse…

The problems that are approached in her essay I Must Write What I Know So I’ll Know That I’ve Known It All Along are ongoing problems in today’s society. Even though most of her main points were directed towards discrimination of race and gender, it can be accommodated with problems in the twentieth century. She spoke of a woman that had experience not knowing who she was and the struggle it truly was. Today, I believe that people are afraid to admit their struggle and do not want to confront them our of embarrassment.
By doing so she lead the way for many female writers and encouraged them to write and make a name for themselves. “O Pioneers!” has many examples of naturalistic thinking throughout. For example in part one, chapter two Cather describes John Bergson’s struggles by saying “ Now, when he had at last struggled out of debt, he was going to die himself. He was only forty-six, and had, of course, counted upon more time.”
In this poem, Hughes looks to a future of pure equality for everyone. “I, Too”, focuses on the idea of a group of people eating at a table together.

Flannery O 'Connor was an author who wrote about an abundance of people with various backgrounds using characterization. She incorporated aspects of all cultures and personalities into her works. The Southern Gothic piece she wrote called “A Good Man Is Hard To Find” showed how human beings work with one another in society, while each of them is their own person with different characteristics. She told about how other people are generally not as easy to communicate with and that no one is the same as another psychologically. In Flannery’s quote, “All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful”, she shows how she sees people which influences her writing of the different types of characters in this book and their adaptations to change.
Noonucal uses personal pronouns, such as 'we ', 'my ', 'us ', 'me ' and 'our ', to involve the reader in the poem and unite the readers as a nation. She uses the simile 'A maggot in the mind ' (17) to refer to the useless and pointless negative and hateful relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

In “The Hoodwinking of Madeline: Skepticism in The Eve of St. Agnes,” Jack Stillinger discusses some possibilities of feminist readings of the poem. First, the romantic poem is about two young lovers—Madeline and Porphyro. Madeline dreams of her lover and her visionary imagination comes true as she wakes to find Porphyro present in her bed. The feminist presence of this poem and essay are pointed out by the internal and external conflicts of the dream and the world. As Madeline is mentioned as a saint and as Porphyro is seeking his heart’s desire of sexual encounters with Madeline, we discover that Madeline is an independent thinker as she decides to run away with Porphyro.
I would characterize the level of diction in the poem “Wild Geese” by Mary Oliver as slightly abstract with more of a general level of English. The level of diction makes the poem easier to relate to on a personal level. By describing nature in such a broad sense, the author leaves the reader open to see their own versions of the landscapes. The diction is appropriate to the subject matter. Oliver’s opening stanza states, “You don’t have to be good.”
Yusef's poem, "Facing It" is an accurate reflection of what happens in the face of the world due to war and turmoil. The affected party is always on the eve of building unforgettable memories from life experiences. Controlling such experiences proves difficult since the haunted, lives under the burden of regret for a longer period if not a lifetime depression. For example, when one loss the people who have been close to him due to war or turmoil, he will always think of this and may be a permanent mark in one's life. Humanity is a take that is expressed in this poem.

However, with this transition comes hardships that weigh you down and make it seem impossible to succeed. Once you leave all the negativity and keep the determination and drive you will be able to achieve that goal and complete your journey.
