FSEM: Writing Ecology: Literature and Environment

Just another UMW Blogs.org weblog

Martín Espada, for Tuesday

After reading up through “My Native Costume”, address the following questions in your blog:

What are the main themes of this poetry?  How does the poet represent the inner-city and the “sense of place” (their sense of “belonging”) of the residents there?   How is the experience of  residents in inner-city tenements represented as compared to the attitudes of the landlords, judges, and bosses of those people?  How does the poetic voice describe his various professions?
