In Class Exercise:
Review your term in chapter one of Understanding Rhetoric and address its
role in Frank O’Hara’s “The Day Lady Died.” Each group will present its findings to the class.
Select one word from “The Day Lady Died” and address its significance to the poem and its depiction of New York. How does the word that you selected differ from the word you chose the first day? Or, if you missed the first day, what is one word that comes to mind when you think of New York?
