351 words - 2 pages

The speaker in "I'm nobody! Who are you?" I feel is a victim of society. The speaker has been told so many times that they are nobody that they now have accepted this assertion and created their self identity around being nobody. I do not feel that the speaker is a shy person, but instead finds liberation through being nobody. By being nobody the speaker goes unnoticed and unaffected by the every day hustle and bustle ...view middle of the document...

The speaker was able to experience all of the things he speaks of by knowing the history and struggles of his people. He relates these struggles in this poem. Although the poem is serious in nature, it does not feel bitter as you read it. Instead I got the feeling that the speaker is trying to show that his race has survived and will continue to survive in the face of struggle.The speaker in "Nice Car, Camille" is someone that has been in love with Camille for a long time. I would say that he has loved her since they were in school together. The speakers tone in this poem is one of compassion and longing. I would say "Nice Car, Camille" meets the definition of a poem. Dictionary.com defines a poem as the following:1.A verbal composition designed to convey experiences, ideas, or emotions in a vivid and imaginative way, characterized by the use of language chosen for its sound and suggestive power and by the use of literary techniques such as meter, metaphor, and rhyme.2.A composition in verse rather than in prose.3.A literary composition written with an intensity or beauty of language more characteristic of poetry than of prose.
