What is a Two-Voice Poem? What is the PURPOSE of a two-voice poem? How is it structured? Use our FAVORITE six-sentence paragraph structure!
Your two-voice poem MUST:
What are some elements of dystopia in “Harrison Bergeron”?
Topic Sentence: Some elements of dystopia in “Harrison Bergeron” are human misery and oppression.
Support 1: George and Harrison are being oppressed by the government through the handicaps they are required to wear at all times.
Elaboration 1: They are required to wear handicaps at all times in order to ensure that everyone is equal.
Support 2: Human misery can also be seen in this text because people have never experienced true freedom.
Elaboration 2: George has random sounds going off in his brain every twenty seconds, which never allows his mind to be free to truly think. He also has a forty pound bag of birdshot around his neck, which also keeps him from being physically free.
Concluding Sentence: In conclusion, although the government wants everyone to be equal, the way that they have reached this equality is by oppressing the people and making their lives miserable.
The purpose of this type of poem is to examine two points of view/perspectives and communicate how those perspectives compare and contrast in a poem with alternating verse.
How does perspective affect a piece of writing?
