Li-Young Lee – Father/Son Theme Poem Analysis
For your 600 word written analysis essay , please consider the father/son relationship that dominates the four poems from the book Rose. Take a close look at the speaker’s relationship and feelings – focus on images and specific words that depict this father/son theme.
Please analyze all four poems and include brief quotations of verse. When you type the line of verse into your analysis, use quotation marks and then cite the line numbers in a parenthetical at the end of your sentence (you will need to count the lines).
