Discussion Board #6: Heaney and Rich
Please choose a specific character, OR a scene, OR a “story” told in Heaney’s play and Rich’s poem cycle, and then compare and reflect on the differences. You may write, for example, on the gender of the main “actors” in both texts, or on the scene or location where most of the action occurs. Is there reconciliation and solidarity at the end of each text?
Make sure that you read the entire poem cycle of Rich’s “Twenty-One Love Poems” before you write this post! You must use at least 2 quotes from each text (4 quotes in all!) in your post.
