Exploring Multicultural Literature
By: Lilly Kottak,Allison Holmes
The poem is important because it's explaining how you can find peace in nature, and that nature is calming.
We can use the information in the pomp by trying to find inner peace while outside.
The min idea of this poem is freeing your mind, to help you find inner peace in nature.
2. The author of the poem portrays/illuminates in their reader/viewers head, a man that is very loving and is unique in the way that he has/maintains a peaceful and simple way of life. We think it is amazing how the author is able to calm down and clear his head enough that he can actually find the everlasting/ever sought of inner peace. He finds peace always in a nature filled forest. We think it would be interesting, and we think it would be the perfect acceptable way to feel better about ones self. He points out that nature is a beautiful thing, it is something that the reader automatically implies. He makes valid suggestions that make us think. This work helps me understand what beauty really is. Beauty is not just people,it's the things around you that glorify and shine.
3. Our perception of the Italian culture is widely expanded. We found out so many unique things while researching, for example we learned that they have very different festivals than what we have here. Also,Italians love their wine. We think that Italian culture is different than ours, but in a good way. We like all the artifacts and old buildings mad because Italy is known for their famous structures. The music, obviously, is hard for us to understand, but it still sounded beautiful. All in all we thought the Italian culture was lovely.
B. The poem written by Giacomo Leopardi is very nice. It's very calming and makes you think of nature in a different point of view. The poem is about a man who finds peace in nature and makes you want to go outside and find inner peace. So, therefore we like this poem. because it's very calming.
