Kayla Billups Per: 4th Explicate The Forge: “The Forge,” by Seamus Heaney is a sonnet about a blacksmith and the vivid images of  processing metal into a creation. The poem gives the reader a glimpse of joy that can obtain  when we do things that we wat, and at that things we enjoy doing. The poem describes the metal  as a female, and goes into an “adulteress” description about the process of his creation, as if it  was a living thing; “... before they punished you you were flaxen-haired, undernourished, and  your tar-black face was beautiful. ” The speaker says that the  “betraying sisters ” allowed her (the metal) to be punished and “ cauled in tar. Previously stated, the poem is an Italian sonnet, with two parts being an octave and sestet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
