As this short work continues the reader is seeing a graceful image that Williams creates. The mind’s eye can envision a painting that is tranquil, yet has the quiet activity of a rural farm home. With this in mind, what exactly is the author sharing with the reader? The poem communicates charmingly the dependence a man has for a vital piece of equipment

    Ezra Pound's In a Station of the Metro Before this week, I had never read any poetry by Ezra Pound. I noticed immediately that many of the poems are very short. "In a Station of the Metro," for example, is two lines. In the essay "Imagism," the second rule of imagistes is said to be "to use absolutely no word that did not contribute to the presentation." I think this rule helps explain why some of Pound's poems are so short. Obeying the second rule of imagistes will be harder the longer the

    William Carlos Williams once said, “It is not what you say that matters, but the manner in which you say it.”(Examiner) This is a view he often incorporated into his poetry. Williams’ purpose through writing poetry was not to teach a moral, but to convey that simple things can be beautiful. Although many of Williams’ poems show this beauty in simplicity, a few good examples are The Red Wheel Barrow, The Great Figure, and Young Sycamore. William Carlos Williams was born in Rutherford, New Jersey

    his poem The Young Housewife, William Carlos Williams uses a series of images to capture a fleeting moment in time, an emotion of admiration and desire. As a man who has endured a few heartbreaks and regrets in life, I identified with the contrite and “solitary” speaker who watches a struggling woman whom he used to love (4). The poem’s main focus is this young woman; newly married, who was most likely involved with the speaker in the past. In the first stanza, Williams gives the reader a glimpse of
