Homework Help: Literature

Posted by Student A on Tuesday, September 18, 2007 at 6:10pm.

So for example for this poem:

Harlem by Langstone Hughes:

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore--
and then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load

Or does it just explode?



My question is how do poets utilize leterary devices and conventions to develop themes in their poetry? I am still having difficulty I am using this poem as an example so i can understand how to do the poem that I have to do. Which is longer than this one.
