    • POEM: We Real Cool by Gwendolyn Brooks (11/11/2007 11:40:00 PM)

      This poem is describing the age old saying 'too cool for school'. It is talking about kids (most likely popular kids) who think they are so cool that they left school. The line 'we lurk late' is describing how they stay out late and probably get into trouble. They also mention gin which implies that they drink and like Jazz music as well. The last line of the poem says that they die soon. This is due to their poor judgment and lack of discipline.

    • POEM: Sadie And Maud by Gwendolyn Brooks (11/11/2007 11:25:00 PM)

      In Gwendolyn Brooks poem 'Sadie and Maud' the author is comparing two sisters lives. Maud is obviously the smarter of the two and therefor she goes to college, but then in the end she is the alone sister that is going to die alone in the old house. So how smart could she possibly be to condemn herself to a life of loneliness? Sadie is the favorite character in this poem because even though she didn't go to college and is an only mother of two, she is still the happy and free sister. When the author talks about Sadie's comb finding every strand, it is symbolizing how Sadie doesn't miss out on any fun in her life and how she lives it to the fullest.
