We Real Cool
Thesis: In Gwendolyn Brooks poem “We real cool” epistrophe, enjambment, and alliteration changes a happy mood to a somber mood
Summary: The poem is about 7 drop outs playing pool in a bar called the Golden Shovel, celebrating the bad things they do but realizing they could get killed
• In the poem, the word “We” is repeated in the end of each line which is an epistrophe. It stresses the characters
• the enjambments make you want to keep reading and find out what happens next
• The alliteration helps the poem flow but it also helps emphasize every statement it makes
