Description:

An in depth look at the writings of poet Stanley Kunitz with focus on his poem "Night Letter". The author analyzes this poem about the tragedies of WWII and compares it to a creative piece written by the author, "Desolate Whispers" about the tragedies that occurred on September 11th.

From the Paper:

"Stanley Kunitz's "Night Letter" inspired me for many reasons. Towards the beginning of class, soon after the terrorist attacks, we dedicated a portion of class to poetry and tragedy. After a tragedy like the one that took place on September 11, many people turned to poetry as a way of morning or even understanding. We read an excerpt of the "Night Letter" by Stanley Kunitz and the first line of the excerpt read, ?Violence shakes my dreams; I am so cold.? This one line was etched in my mind for days. I really did not understand a whole lot of the poem, but this one line kept drawing me back."
