Hi there in the poem below i have to write an essay of how the new world is being portrayed with examples but im a bit stuck if someone can please help me:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
If you're "a bit stuck," you must have some ideas. Please post them, and I'll be glad to comment on them and add to them if necessary.
Well i have thought about writing how the new world resembles hope and a new beginning but im not sure which actual phrases can help me to support my description of the new world
