Reflect on Krista Tippett’s interview with poet Jericho Brown. You can discuss your thoughts on the interview as a whole, or a particular question/answer, or even a single line that especially stood out to you while listening. How does listening to Brown discuss his own work impact how you think about your own poetry and/or relationship to writing.

Our guiding question as we move from our “fiction” unit to our “poetry” unit is what makes this week’s readings “poetry” instead of fiction?

“Nude Interrogation (Links to an external site.)” by Yusef Komunyakaa (Burroway, 157)
“Mango No. 61 (Links to an external site.)” by Richard Blanco
Given these three pieces, identify elements traditionally ascribed to both fiction and to poetry which you find in them. To what extent can we, broadly, and you, personally, consider these poems? How do they compare to your previous conceptions of poetry? Do you feel they more rightly belong under “fiction” and, the usual: why/not? If there are elements of the Jericho Brown interview which influence how you think about these readings, please feel free to discuss that!

Qualities You Might Consider…
Does it have characters? If so, who are they? What do they want? What do they do?
Does the piece follow a traditional plot structure? If so, point out how, or in what ways the piece diverges from traditional plot structure we discussed in our fiction unit.
Who is telling the story? To whom?
Language—is it familiar or elevated?
Compressed imagery—how much weight or meaning is packed into a single image?
Rhythm—Do you notice any musical quality to these pieces? Try reading them silently and then aloud.
Sound—Do you notice repetition of certain words or sounds?
