Upsetting the Apple Cart: Thinking Critically About Oppositional Discourse

Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson provides students with an opportunity to examine critically the anti-imperialist poetry of Ruben Dario and Pablo Neruda. Through collaboration in small groups, students will consider audience, tone, and
point of view—as well as the ways in which the two poets conceptualize the complex nature of the colonial relationship through the use of metaphor and other techniques. As a summative assessment, students will be asked to compose their own poem which explores the theme of colonialism in a context beyond Latin America (for example, Sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia).
