This video shows Natasha Trethewey’s response to certain works of art. Through reading her poems, we can see the connections that she has made. It’s important to try and understand Trethewey’s thought process in order to connect on a deeper level with her. I think this is especially important, because in class we do “responsive” activities similar to this. By watching Trethewey’s translations we can learn something new and improve our own responses/interpretations. Watch the video for the first 4 minutes and 30 seconds.
