LEO: The Wind Cries Mary
BLUESONG GUIDE DESCRIPTIONRecorded on January 11, 1967 "The Wind Cries Mary" is a poetic meditation on death and grieving. This BlueSong Guide walks students through Hendrix’s use of personification, repetition, and metaphor. It connects nicely with literature that deals with death like All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, Night by Eli Weisel or The Red Pony by John Steinbeck. The included differentiated lesson plan offers a series of companion activities catered to multiple intelligences. For example, one activity asks students to compare and contrast Hendrix’s lyrics to the surreal artwork of Salvador Dali.
Death of Loved One
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
Maus by Art Spiegelman
Night by Eli Weisel
Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo
The Red Pony by John Steinbeck
