Main Claims

William Carlos Williams’ This Is Just to Say is a sweet love poem almost in a post-it note form to his wife where he apologizes for taking the plums all for himself and expresses how much he enjoyed them in an attempt to convey how much their marriage means to him.  In E.E Cummings’ 1(a, he cleverly arranged the letters to spell l(a leaf falls)oneliness, in other words, a leaf falls within the word loneliness.  Ezra Pound’s In a Station of the Metro he expresses his experience of an underground railroad in Paris and how the people he sees faces’ he compares to flowers on a tree branch.
