Lesson 5.05: Analyzing 20th Century Poetry Kate Hamm Mrs. Adcock English 3
Selected Poems • For this lesson, the poems I have selected is Fog by Carl Sandburg, and Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost.
Fog by Carl Sandburg • The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.
Poem Analysis • This poem can be connected to some events in the 20th century. One possible way the poem can be realted to the 20th century could be that the fog represents the many problems that Americans faced during this time. Some problems include: the struggle for Civil Rights, economic turmoil, and the internal struggle amongst many other things going on at this time.The fog sits upon "silent haunches", which represents how your personal conflicts will tend to stick with you. However, the poem ends with the fog clearing, which represents the ability to move on, and solve your problems and move on.
