Poem Main Claims

Poem Main Claim

Ezra Pound: The main claim of, "In a Station of the Metro" is that generalizations based off of physical appearances is dangerously inaccurate. Pound even likens it to how slippery wet leaves can be.

William Carlos Williams: The main claim of, "This is Just to Say" is that temptation is a part of human nature, and that we do often bend to its will.

E.E. Cummings: The main claim of "1(a" is that even though the language used in the poem does not have any real grammatical  meaning, there is a way to draw a theme or reason from any work of language regardless of its form.
