Reading: Bhanu Kapil, Humanimal:
Text on Orientalism from Buddhism in America
Poetry analysis handout again. Choose a poem from Humanimal, or Blood Dazzler and perform an analysis using the poetry analysis handout. Your journal assignment is to produce notes for a possible essay. That is, complete the steps in the handout, and write in complete sentences, but you are not required to choose a thesis. Do complete the steps, including step 8, and list 2-3 possible thesis statements. Turn in your poetry analysis here. If you have struggled with this, do not worry. I will post more information on Week 5 and you can write your analysis after that.
