Historical Perspective- America by Mind Map: Historical Perspective- America

1. Created by- Alex Hayes and Jayde Eggert

2. The difference between these two pieces of poems is that the '' I Hear America Singing" poem talks to Americans but not all just to white people who are American. The ''I, Too, Sing America'' talks to the black skinned people not any white at this time there is a BIG difference between the two colors.

3. tone- the tone was that he was stronger and just because he was discriminated doesnt mean hes not strong. "i am the darker brother they tell me to eat in the kitchen but i laugh." that shows that he is strong and didnt let anything get to him

4. " I, Too, Sing America" by Langston Hughes

4.1. mood- is showing that just because of there skin color they are strong . "they send me to the kitchen to eat when the company comes. but i laugh" (Hughes)

5. "I Hear America Singing" by Walt Witman

5.1. Mood- Proud and strong is what I feel when I hear such word " Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else, The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly, Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs". (Walt Whitman)

5.2. Tone- The author wants you to feel peaceful as a American by saying " I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear, Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong". (Walt Whitman)

5.3. Anyone who is a free and peaceful person who lives in America is a true American and the author is talking to those Americans. But not talking to any Black skinned people.
