In reading closely, you will need to pay attention to certain patterns and themes that run consistently throughout particular writers or groups of writers. For example, Walt Whitman’s most famous poem is Song of Myself. In this poem he is celebrating the Romantic individual. So in this quotation from the poem, the idea of “myself” is very clear. If you look in the possible responses, you can see that Whitman’s poem is the most obvious answer. You could have eliminated Thoreau’s Walden because it is a work of non-fiction. It is not a poem.
“I celebrate myself, and sing myself,/And what I assume you shall assume,/For every atom belonging to me as good belong to you.”
*Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Self-Reliance”
Most of the quotations on the exam will be either first lines of poetry or will be quotations that will clearly identify the author and that should be enough to determine the correct response because only one author’s work will be offered at a time as an option. There are other types of multiple-choice questions; however, if you pay attention to both themes and literary periods, you should be able to discern the correct response.
