For my second Essay, I am choosing to write about Lorde’s poem “Power.” I feel her work is extremely profound especially with today’s current events. I am going to discuss the racial tensions occurring throughout the poem as well as society during the era in which it was written. I will also discuss the carelessness of the death of a young child still holding on to innocence and the relevance within Lorde’s era as well as our own.

  1. This is such a powerful relevant poem both in the time it was written but also today! Just make sure you are talking specifically about the literary elements of the poem as well as the surrounding context...
