Use of Irony

Issues of Social Class

Work Time

A primary focus of today’s lesson is to broaden the issues of social class by looking at two very different short poems: “The Golf Links” by Sarah Norcliffe Cleghorn and “For a Lady I Know” by Countee Cullen.

  • Listen as the poems are read aloud. Note any words you don’t know and figure out the definitions.
  • Reread the two poems with a partner, and discuss how the authors use irony.
