The Representative Poem 19th century

Order Instructions
What poems encapsulate a period? To answer that question, you must understand two things: the culture of a specific period and the meaning of an individual poem. To make your argument, you must explain the meaning of the poem selected, including how it functioned in its historical context. For example, a specific work that was very popular in its period might be considered quite badly written now; it is the poem’s popularity in its period that matters.
• Select a poem from the readings for this week.
• Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you make a persuasive argument that the poem you selected is most representative of the 19th century.
• Include summaries of the major cultural forces defining the 19th century.
• Support your argument with specific examples from the poem and outside research, as needed.
• Format your paper according to APA standards.
