Poetry Essay

For your 3rd essay, a poetry explication, choose one of the poems we’ve been discussing and explore a mixture of the paragraph ideas below, choosing the ones you feel best suit your chosen poem. 

Poems to choose from include the following:

“Living Poets” by Jeffrey Skinner

“Late Poem to My Father” by Sharon Olds

“America” by Tony Hoagland

“Hard Rain” by Tony Hoagland

“Soil Horizon” by Tiana Clark

“So I Know” by Bob Hicok

“The Elevator Operator” by Amit Majmudar


Paragraph ideas from which to choose in order to build your argument:

  • discuss the complicated issue/situation/development at stake in the poem


  • discuss a key image and how this image works to advance the poem’s tension or theme


  • discuss, if applicable, the author’s use of enjambment and how specific line breaks may serve to emphasize certain words connected to the poem’s theme


  • discuss a central word in the poem and how the word can teach a reader how to interpret the rest of the poem


  • discuss a family of words that connect to each other and how these words advance the theme of the poem


  • discuss the use of figurative language and any relationship to the poem’s theme


  • discuss the tone of the poem and which specific parts of the poem (imagery, diction) support this tone


  • discuss, if applicable, the author’s use of syntax


  • discuss any allusions within the poem and how these allusions connect to the poem’s purpose
  • Mention the author’s full name and the title of the work
  • After mentioning the author’s name the first time, from then on use only the author’s last name.
  • Remember that short works (stories, essays, and poems) require the use of quotation marks (e.g. “Everyday Use”) while long works such as novels require italics (Huckleberry Finn)
  • Use present tense verbs when writing about literature
  • Provide a general plot summary of the work—no need to go into great detail—just the basic gist of things.  In essence, you are providing a context in which to examine the story. 
  • Provide a more analytical/interpretive understanding of the work’s underlying tension and its resolution.  What is the work’s overall purpose, its reason for being, its theme?
  • Explain the method or “how” (i.e. the elements of fiction: plot, structure, characterization, symbolism, setting, style, point of view, tone) through which the author achieves his or her purpose for the story

Considerations:If you are addressing an author’s use of setting, for instance, do you make an argument about how the author’s use of setting helps to advance the story’s theme? Does your opening paragraph, in fact, establish a theme, or purpose, for the story?  In order to do so, you’ll need to establish an understanding of the central conflict of the story and the resolution it finds. Remember that plot + conflict + resolution = theme. Without this understanding, your first paragraph hasn’t fully done its job.

4 Finance Questions

1.Consider another uneven ash flow stream:Year                                    Cash Flow0                                                2,0001                                                 2,0002                                                 03                                                 1,5004                                                2,5005                                                 4,000a. What is the present (Year 0) value of the cash flow stream if the opportunity cost rate is 10 percent?b. What is the future (year 5) value of the cash flow stream if the cash flows are invested in an account that pays 10 percent annually?c. What cash flow today (year 0), in lieu of the 2,000 cash flow, would be needed to accumulate 20,000 at the end of year 5 (assume that the cash flows for years 1 through 5 remain the same)d. Time value analysis involves either discounting or compounding cash flows. Many healthcare financial management decisions-such as bond refunding, capital investment, and lease versus buy-involve discounting projected future cash flows. What factors much executives consider when choosing a discount rate to apply to forecasted cash flows?2. Twin Oaks Health Center has a bond issue outstanding with a coupon rate of 7 percent and four years remaining until maturity. The par value of the bond is $1000, and the bond pays interest annually.a. Determine the current value of the bond if present market conditions justify a 14 percent required rate of return.B. Now suppose Twin Oaks’ four-year bond had semiannual coupon payments. What would be its currrent value? (Assume a 7 percent semiannual required rate of return. However, the actual rate would be slightly less than 7 percent because a semiannual coupon bond is slightly less risky than an annual coupon bond.)c. Assume that Twin Oaks’ four year bond had a seminannual coupon but 20 years remaining to maturity. What is the current value under these conditions? (Again, assume a 7 percent semiannual required rate of return, although the actual rate would probably be greater than 7 percent because of increased price risk.)3.Golden State Home Health, Inc., is a large, California-based for-profit home health agency. Its dividends are expected to grow at a constant rate of 5 percent per year into the foreseeable future. The firm’s last dividend (D0) was $1, and its current stock price is $10. The firm’s beta coefficient is 1.2; the rate of return on 20-year T-Bonds currently is 8 percent; and the expected rate of return on the market, as reported by a large financial service firm, is 14 percent. Golden State’s target capital structure calls for 60 percent debt financing, the interest rate required on its new debt is 9 percent, and the firm’s tax rate is 30 percent.a. What is the firm’s cost of equity estimate according to the DCF method?b. What is the cost of equity estimate according to the CAPM?c. On the basis of your answers to Parts a and b, what would be your final estimate for the firm’s cost of equity?d. What is your estimate for the firm’s corporate cost of capital?4.You have been asked by the president and CEO of Kidd Pharmaceuticals to evaluate the proposed acquisition of a new labeling machine for one of the firm’s production lines. The machine’s price is $50,000, and it would cost another $10,000 for transportation and installation. The machine falls into the MACRS three-year class, and hence the tax depreciation allowances are 0.33, 0.45, and 0.15 in Years 1, 2, and 3, respectively. The machine would be sold after three years because the production line is being closed at that time. The best estimate of the machine’s salvage value after three years of use is $20,000. The machine would have no effect on the firm’s sales or revenues, but it is expected to save Kidd $20,000 per year in before-tax operating costs. The firm’s tax rate is 40 percent and its corporate cost of capital is 10 percent.a. What is the project’s net investment outlay at Year 0?b. What are the project’s operating cash flows in Years 1, 2, and 3?c. What are the terminal cash flows at the end of Year 3?d. If the project has average risk, is it expected to be profitable?
