  • 1) “Diving into the Wreck” is Rich’s best known poem, but in many ways it is not typical of her work. Referring to at least two other Rich poems, discuss how “Diving into the Wreck” is different from Rich’s poetry in plot, characterization, and structure. (250 – 350 words)
  • 2) As the introduction to the album of Pat Mora’s poetry suggests, Mora takes pride in being a Latina writer and identifies one of her goals as chronicling the experience and feelings of contemporary Latinos and Latinas. Compare at least two of Mora’s poems, exploring what they together imply about what it is like to be Latina/Latino and how that experience differs across generations, classes, and/or genders. (250 – 350 words)
