1. Choose a poem we have read so far that you like and are intrigued by. 2. Use the library databases to find an article on that poem or on the topic it explores. It can be literary criticism (someone’s article about their interpretation of the poem) or topic-based (for example, a research article about climate change, if the poem is about climate or the environment). 3. Read the article and highlight passages that you think are interesting, or that make good points. It’s okay if you don’t understand everything in the entire article – literary criticism and research can be challenging to read! Focus on the points that you do understand. If you feel like the entire article is confusing, choose a different one, though. No one wants you to feel lost and confused. 4. Write a brief paragraph (three or four sentences is great) about the poem or topic. Incorporate at least one quote from the poem and one quote from the article. Remember that quotes should be integrated into your own sentences.

In Adrienne Rich’s poem “Aunt Jennifer’s Tigers,” the speaker describes her aunt Jennifer as “terrified” (9) and “mastered by” (10) conflicts in her life. The speaker’s description gives readers as much information about her, the niece, as it does about the aunt. As one scholar argues, the speaker is making “judgments” about Aunt Jennifer (Rizza 65). Jennifer is, after all, able to “flutter” (Rich 5) her hands to do needlework, though the speaker views her hands as being under the “massive weight” of a wedding band (Rich 7). Michael Rizza sees this description as “contradictory,” and attributes the symbolic weight of the ring to “the niece’s judgment more than actual description” (65). It is not clear that Aunt Jennifer feels as weighed down as her niece perceives her to be. Purchase the answer to view it
