Another thing we focused on this week was analyzing and studying the poem The Eagle. I found that the poem was a little tough to understand. I always asked myself "what is the author trying to tell the reader?", however, that way of thinking actually limited my creativity. I started to put The Eagle into a box because I was simply trying to solve for "X". Therefore, I started to ask myself "what do I think the poem is about?". This is a simple question but it ultimately opened up a new world of perspectives. I was no longer shackled to narrow minded thinking. My next step for weeks to come is to learn how to organize my thoughts of a poem in a quick manner, so I become better equipped for the AP test.
