Homework Help: Literature

Posted by mysterychicken on Tuesday, December 8, 2009 at 11:50am.

'What is the tone of the poem El Olvido? Describe the speaker's attitude towards the subject and support your description by commenting on word choice and rhythm.'

This is what i got:

The tone of the poem 'El Olvido' is very solemn as the speaker describes all the dangers of forgetfulness. This is made obvious because the phrase 'It is dangerous' is repeated many times throughout the poem. She tells three kids that el olvido is a dangerous thing and that they should not forget their past, their ancestors, their culture, and their religion. The speaker is very serious as she explains all of this, because the poem has a steady rhythm with serious words.

That's about all I can get...any suggestions on how I can make it longer and better?

Thanks
