Critical Review Of Irene Mortan's "They'll See How Beautiful I Am" English Comp 1 Essay

604 words - 3 pages

Critical Review
In Irene Morstan’s “They’ll See How Beautiful I Am”: “I Too” and The Harlem Renaissance she gives her analysis of Langston Hughes poem “I Too”. Morstan starts off by giving a short explanation of what the poem is expressing, then immediately goes into the background of the Harlem Renaissance and Langston Hughes’s involvement in that. Morstan also gives connections from other sources, like how she mentions “The Book of American Negro Poetry” by James Weldon Johnson to give connections on the racial side of the poem. In the next parts of the essay Morstan breaks down the poem, stanza by stanza, and over explains what each line means or to what it is referring to. Later in the essay the readers are also given more historical background on the harlem renaissance and other influential poets/writers of that time. This essay does a great job of analyzing the poem by using a very in depth description of the meaning behind the poem, giving multiple outside connections, and providing historical background that connects back to the poem.
In the first couple of paragraphs Morstan does a great job of giving an overview of what the poems message is and breaking down each line and giving and explanation for what each line means and how it connects back to the central message of the poem.
