I am having real trouble with my poetry unit.  Ok not really, but I have a really hard time analyzing poetry.  I feel that there is not enough there to analyze.  It's just so stupid.  Not that poetry isn't interesting.... its just that I don't understand how I am supposed to be able to tell the difference between the author's tone and the "speaker's" tone.   It fucking impossible, way harder than with prose.  I am so tired, but I have to get this done, because even though I have the day off I won't have internet access on Wednesday and there is no way I'll get this stuff done.  I mean its not that hard, I just feel like everything I say is stupid and makes no sense.  It seems to me that there is no clear answer and I have a hard time with that.  I know people say that Literature is subjective, but that not really true.  I mean no matter what you say War and Peace is not about Dinosaurs from space who blew up their planet and eat chewing gum.  Just like when I pull some of these analyses out of thin air, they don't really work.  But I so don't have the energy to find something that does work.   I have been staring at this poem for like 45 mins and I just have nothing to say about the characterization, because I'm honestly not sure that there is any.  I have nothing to say about the tone either and who the fuck I am to say whether a poem is good or not.  I honestly just wish that we had a mobile hot spot.  I would make my life much simpler.  And at the same time it wouldn't do shit to change anything.  Except for maybe I'd be asleep right now, but probably not even that.
