Literary Interpretation on poem America BY TONY HOAGLAND

Lit! really should’ve been called “Interpretation”, or maybe even “Literary Interpretation”. But to call it that would belie its true purpose and value, and it would have probably caused you all kinds of anxious hand-wringing and despair as it marched toward us on the calendar. Literary interpretation has that kind of power over people. And those very words – “Literary Interpretation” – have a pretty bad connotation for most people. You hear them and you think back to the horrors of high school writing, the didacticism of your teachers’ demands, the regurgitation of whatever it was you thought your teacher wanted to hear, and, of course, the perils and general uselessness of the ol’ 5-paragraph essay. Yes. So this essay is called Lit! in the hopes that we can push beyond those bad experiences and move on to writing (and thinking) that is more mind-opening, creative, and your own. Lit! can also refer to the metaphorical fire of the mind – the burning of thought – that such writing as you’re about to do can and should engender. I.e. real thoughtful, original writing that delves deep into the meaning of its subject. Or, to sum it up using another academic expletive: analysis! In our case, such analysis will be developed using a few different methods or tools. The idea here is that we’ve been writing a ton all semester, and we’ve even gone so far as to rework our thoughts and wrestle with our writing in different genres and through revision. You’ve really done quite a lot of writing this semester. Now, while continuing to become more and more comfortable with putting words down on the page, we’re going to focus even harder on the other half of this course’s title: thought. We’ve thought a lot this semester, of course, but this assignment will teach us to think more deeply, more analytically, about what we read. By learning to think more deeply about what we read, we’ll strengthen our cognitive skills as well as our writing skills, and we’ll develop these thought-muscles that will enable us to think more deeply about not just what we read, but also what we watch, observe, hear, consider, etc. We’ll be able to apply this newfound ability to our entire lives, thus literally getting more understanding and enjoyment out of our lives than before. Don’t think so? Work through this stuff and find out. And best of all, this assignment helps you with any other analytical-type writing you’ll have to do in college, too. This assignment will require you to write about a poem. In the essay, the goal will be to discuss (using your powers of detail, specifics, and clarity) what you think the poem means and/or the ideas it conveys, how the poem achieves its meanings, and how this assignment's activities assisted in your rendering of the poem (or not)? Got it? Essays less than 3 pages will likely not be thoughtful enough pieces of writing, so push yourself to think specifically. Final essays, along with a Cover Letter
