Storyboard Text

  • Title
  • Paraphrase
  • Connotation 
  • Based on the title, I think the poem is about something that is new and powerful.
  • Attitude/Tone
  • Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,With conquering limbs astride from land to land;Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall standA mighty woman with a torch, whose flameIs the imprisoned lightning, and her nameMother of Exiles. From her beacon-handGlows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes commandThe air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame."Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries sheWith silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" Emma Lazarus
  • This powerful, conquering thing stands between two cities and has eyes that show her strength, yet is very welcoming and shows affection.
  • Shift/Structure
  • Brazen, conquering, mighty, imprisoned, beacon-hand, glows, welcome, masses, yearning, teeming, homeless, golden door.
  • Title/Theme
  • The poem has a strong and powerful tone.
  • The shift is in the ninth line when she beings to talk. There are fourteen lines and the rhyme scheme is A, B, B, A, A, B, B, A, C, D, C, D, C, D. 
  • After reading the poem, I think it is about the Statue of Liberty. Theme: Some things may seem imitating but turn out to be welcoming.
