The Climax of I Want You Women Up North to Know

- Lines 85-97 of Tillie Olsen's first published poem "I Want You Women Up North to Know" contain the climactic turning point of this poem, and the language and form reflect this change. Instead of being humble and disjointed victims who remain mostly anonymous, the workers are transformed into an angry and unified group of distinct individuals.

The imagery in this passage helps turn the tone of the poem from victimization to anger....   [tags: Want You Women Up North to Know]

- “If You Don’t Want Them To Know Something, Put In A Book, They’ll Never Read It!” “If you don’t want them to know something, put it in a book, they’ll never read it.” This was a saying that was widely during and after desegregation of the schools, and as I know is still being used today, to display the ignorance and lack of knowledge of African-Americans.
