Poetry can evoke strong feelings in readers. Sometimes it shocks us, amuses us, provokes us—makes us think. Choose 2 poems (minimum) that had a powerful effect on you as a reader and examine what makes those poems so powerful. While it will be appropriate to discuss your own reaction, be sure to back up your answer with specifics from the poetry.
