How poetry has influenced the view of history

Write an essay comparing and contrasting two poems written about a historical or current event (for example, any war, the Civil Rights Movement, the women’s rights movement, 9/11, global warming, mass shootings, etc.). The goal is to consider not only how poets have responded to historical events but also how our reading of poetry might influence our view of history and/or our own historical moment.

each essay must include at least one reliable secondary source and clearly indicate how it supports, provides context for, or contrasts with your analysis.

This paper should be 3-4 pages long. Give your paper an interesting, descriptive title and use MLA formatting throughout
