Meet our first mystery text!
Your goal is to read this poem semiotically. Let’s deploy our familiar equipment: read the poem a couple of times; divide a sheet of paper into two columns; start noting significant terms in the left column; add potential opposing terms in the right column; look for patterns. As you look for patterns, try starting with the most concrete term(s) in the poem and working outward from there. Bring your semiotic worksheet to class on Tuesday.
