Social/Marxist Lens

View and analyze the documentary ” I Am Not A Bum” using these questions below:

  • Summarize the text.
  • Describe the social status of the characters.
  • Describe the power struggles. Who has the power? Who doesn’t?
  • How do the power struggles impact the text?
  • What comments does the author seem to be making about society as a whole?

Now, practice using the Social/Marxist Lens by reading and applying the same questions from above to the poem “Cause I Ain’t Got a Pencil”
