Essential Questions for English 12: Literature of Justice

  • How does an author convey the truth within the context of his or her fiction? How do you think each of the authors we are reading might define truth? Do you agree or disagree with their visions of truth?
  • What role does truth play in the lives of the characters? Does it change over time?
  • In your own life, what role has truth played? Has it changed over time? If so, how?
  • What is the relationship between truth, justice, and leadership?
  • How does the author or playwright portray issues of justice in the text and through the characters? How do you relate to these issues of justice? How have you come to understand justice?

Do Now: React to, reflect upon, and write 10 lines about this poem and what it suggested.

Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins

I ask them to take a poemand hold it up to the light like a color slide

or press an ear against its hive.

I say drop a mouse into a poemand watch him probe his way out,

or walk inside the poem's roomand feel the walls for a light switch.

I want them to water skiacross the surface of a poemwaving at the author's name on the shore.

But all they want to dois tie the poem to a chair with ropeand torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hoseto find out what it really means.
