review for poem and article
Explain a way you think W. H. Audens The Unknown Citizen (1939) relates to Stephen Cranes The Open Boat (1897). Discuss evidence (i.e., quote or paraphrase specific lines) from both the poem and story to support the connection you make between the texts.
Narrator, point of view, symbol, irony, and theme are some literary terms worth seeing the definitions in the glossaries that are in Course Documents. For Audens poem, for example, who do you imagine is speaking? Do you trust the speakers point of view?
On page 4 of Cranes story, there is a brief epigraph about the sinking of the steamer Commodore. Crane was a journalist on the steamship when it sank, and the story was at least inspired by the experience.
