MacNolia. What can I say it was a really good book but before I even talk about the book I want to get at the structure of it. The way that the poems are arranged is a great way to create the plot and conflict within the book. All of the poems in the book create an all around theme that portrays the main character and his life. He creates a feeling that every poem gets at. I really like elegy to my son because it shows a lot of emotion within MacNolia. It also portrays her emotion without her ever saying them. I learned a lot of from our poetry unit and MacNolia.
