Although this illustration of a journey such as this appears to be simple and boring, the poem itself is rather asking the question, “Why not do more?” This very question is something that Creeley seems to embrace in both his other writings and his life....   [tags: modern society, outcry for change]

The Beach - Rise Again

- The sunrise. What a sight. The dreary dark of the night is lifting. It is being invaded by my strong sunrays. The silver ark has finally vanished.

The Poem ' Let America Be America Again ' By Langston Hughes

- The poem “Let America be America Again” by Langston Hughes is dedicated to the America that never was.

However, Hughes neglects to reflect the marginalized women of America and projects a falsified dream upon Native Americans, while still providing commentary on the hypocrisy of “freedom” in America....   [tags: Native Americans in the United States]
