Storyboard Text

  • Title
  • Paraphrase
  • Connotation/Attitude
  • When I first read the title, The New Colossus, I think of a large, ancient statue that was named the New Colossus as a trademark for something.
  • Shift
  • I am enlightening the world to come to me and be welcomed into a world of freedom.
  • The Mother of Exiles stands mighty with her flaming torch.  She wants the poor, the huddled people wanting freedom, the wretched, and the homeless all to come to her because she is willing to shine her light for the ones in need.
  • Title
  • I resemble the acceptance of all people.
  •  The poem used words such as wretched to describe the people she wanted that could be poor, conquering to show she was powerful, beacon and throne showing she had pride,  and "world-wide welcome" because she welcomed everybody.  This poem's attitude was calm at times but at other times demanding.  She wanted people to know she was accepting but she wanted all of the people to be given to her immediately.
  • Theme
  • The shift happens when Emma Lazarus, the author of The New Colossus, goes from describing what the Statue of Liberty looks like to explaining what she wants and how she will shine her throne to a world of acceptance and freedom.
  • After reading The New Colossus I now picture the Statue of Liberty when I read the tiltle of the poem and what she represents to the people of our world.
  • Any person that is struggling or needs freedom is considered the same as any other person and just as welcome as they would be.
  • Welcome
  • I lift my lamp beside the golden door!  Everyone is welcome here!
