Final Out of Class Paper
I choose topic one for the final paper. I picked 15 poems from McClure’s Magazine from the years of 1918 and 1920. Some quick generalizations about the published poems are that they are rather short compared to the literary work in the Norton Anthology. Another generalization is that they tend to rhyme where as most of the lines in the poems Norton Anthology tend to just flow without rhyming. Another generalization about

current topics or about things that people knew about. This made them popular and people read them. The poems from the same era in the Norton Anthology are quite different. Their language is difficult, the poems are long, the reader had to analyze each line carefully and separately, and their topics were unrelated to what was going on in the world at that time. These characteristics made them unattractive and the published poems more appalling.
