Because of its implicit demand to remember.”(Andrew Motion in Elaine Showalter’s Teaching Literature, Blackwell 2003. p.63)QUOTE #2:“What’s poetry’s role in protest politics?Should poets be leading the charge in rousing metres, or reflecting thoughtfully on the sidelines?At times of upheaval and unrest, is poetry’s role to fan the flames or cool tempers?”(Adam O’Riordan, The Guardian/ Wed 15 Dec 2010)Requirements:5 typed pages, (or 1250 words) double spaced, spell checked & numbered.In Word rather than Adobe PDF.Your name in the Header.When quoting from a poem, put the citation between quotation marks, and the poem’s title and author’s name in parenthesis (i.e.: Grief/Siamanto)
