- “Not waving but drowning” is a poem by Stevie Smith about a man who is drowning but the people watching believe he is waving at them. This is symbolic of someone drowning in their own mind, but everyone around is fooled by the smile on their face. Smith battled her own physiological problems, she thought about suicide at the age of 8 and struggled with her father abandoning her. The poem is only 12 lines long and has almost a humorous tone considering the horror of watching a man die. The poet has little sympathy for the victim and uses the word “cold” numerous times....

- “Nobody heard him, the dead man, / but still he lay moaning:” This is how many people go on through life. Many are dying inside but you would never know. It is possible for people to create masks to hide their emotions. Sometimes these masks are so deceptive that even close friends or family members cannot see through then until it is too late. In Stevie Smith’s poem, “Not Waving but Drowning” the writer effectively highlights how someone’s cry for help can be mistaken for joy. It is important for people to at least have someone who cares about them and knows them well enough to see when something is going wrong in their lives.... [tags: Not Waving but Drowning]

The biblical account underlines the supremacy of man while making it clear that women play an inferior role.... [tags: Poetry]

- For the most part, the casting of She Kills Monsters was very hit and miss for me. I thought that Lindsey Parodi did exceptionally well in the role of Agnus and I really enjoyed the maturity, yet childlike energy that she brought to the character. Janae Dunn did very well in her role as Tilly as well. Every time her character entered, I felt her strong presence, even when she wasn’t so strong as a character. The supporting cast was all over the place though. The cheerleaders were two characters that I did not enjoy watching at all, nor did I think that they were cast well....

- Stevie Smith and Marriage Stevie and Marriage: Preface Florence "Stevie" Smith grew up in unstable family conditions. Her family was falling apart, and she observed every moment with hushed censure. These repressed feelings can be seen in her poetry.

At the high school library I found a series called Critical Survey Of Poetry that has been most helpful in providing background information on Smith, as well as critical reviews of some of her poems....
