My favorite poem was Hitler's First Photograph. It was different to see how the author conveyed hope to the reader by using such words as angel, sunshine, and honeybun. I like how the first paragraph emphasized how there was so much potential for good in his life. As the poem progresses, the hopeful tone changes to a modest tone, which I thought was a good change of pace. The poem as a whole was shocking, considering the background of the poet. It was as if the poet felt sorry for Hitler, and what a disappointment he was.
