Analysis Of The Poem ' The Jungle Husband '

- admitted, writing to a publisher that she did not want her work promoted in Palmers Green where she lived, because “a lot of the people here are in the novels and poems” according to William May, who wrote reviews on a number of Smith’s poems in the Oxford Journals (324). May infers that in “The Jungle Husband”, Evelyn must have been a middle class wife, at home sitting in a very tidy sitting room, knitting, or perhaps sipping tea with a friend. (332). From my interpretation, I believe that Evelyn most likely had lived in a somewhat sheltered, closeted environment, which gives her hardly any conception of her husband 's daily experiences-for she has never worked outside the home....   [tags: Marriage, Husband, Wife, Poetry]

He allows for his own ideas of grieving, or lack thereof, to enter into the equation and be added to the miscommunication that is already occurring, by stating: I do think, though, you overdo it a little....   [tags: Marriage, Thought, Husband, The Wall]

This poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband,” is a loving tribute from Bradstreet to her husband. Certainly, in the early American, Puritan colonies, this work would have been seen as a wife’s duty as well as a lovely gesture. Today, however, it might well be seen as the babblings of a dependant wife. This was my reaction to the poem when I first read it. The attitudes of our country have changed drastically since the mid-1600s and devotion of a wife to her husband is now often seen as a sign of weakness....   [tags: Anne Bradstreet]
