The text that I will be highlighting is Second Empire by Richie Hofmann. The reason why I chose this collection is because they are my favorite style of literature. There is endless possibilities for what poems can be and what they can mean, I love that. I have selected a variety of different pieces that I believe show the variations of the author's fluid style and hidden meaning. His poems are something that I will be taking, dissecting and interpreting what they could mean through a variety of lenses ranging from Queer Theory to Psychoanalytic Theory. I have decided to have the main focus being on how much symbolism and imagery is demonstrated by Hoffman. I will be developing my project through my personal Weebly page. Under the English 1B tab, I will have slides accompanied with my interpretation of what the poems mean. I will provide a platform that takes into account any cultural and/or social issue that accompany the theme regardless of what that may be. Which will then provide background info from the creator, the author. I believe art speaks levels of personal struggle, and can mean different things to different people, I will be showing what this means to me and why I love this particular branch of art. The way that I planned to present my project will be through sub-pages of main website. With the help of visual aids, hyperlinks, and other components, I will hopefully add my authentic voice to the conversation of the analyzation of art.
