      *Non African poem*

No. 12

Repetition:

This is the mentioning of a word or group of word twice or more times in a poem mainly for emphasizes. The poem hints more on the time, as such, the word “when” is repeated in the poem in the last lines of the third and last stanza. It emphasizes that death will surely come in time, though the time is often unknown to us. “May” is another word that is repeated in the poem in line 3 of the first stanza and line 3 of the third stanza. It is emphasized to hint the notion of no mourning when death comes. Also in the poem, the notion of death is repeatedly emphasized in all the stanzas.

Imagery:

This is when a word or group of words create(s) sound, image, smell, and taste in our mind. Audio and visual imagery can be found in line 1 of stanza three: “evening bell”. It creates sound in the reader’s mind and a picture of a bell too. In line 1 and 2 of stanza two, the poetic personae creates an audio image with the idea of the sound made when the sea tide moves. Words like, the dark, flood, boundless deep, pilot, bar and so on creates visual image. The reader is made to visualize them in his/her mind when reading the poem.

Metaphor:

This is the direct comparison of two phenomenon (things, persons etc.). The quality of the pilot as the one who directs the cause of an aero plane and the passengers is used metaphorically in the poem to refer to the quality/ability of the one who directs the cause of the universe and all the living things in it – God. More so, the act of crossing the bar is compared to the act of dying or transiting to the next world.

About the Poem
“The School Boy” is a 1789
poem by William Blake and
published as a part of his
poetry collection entitled
“Songs of Innocence.”
The poem is written in the
pastoral tradition that focuses
on the downsides of formal
learning. It considers how
going to school on a summer
day “drives all joy away”.The
boy in this poem is more
interested in escaping his
classroom.
The personae in this poem is a
happy boy who ‘loves to rise’
to the fresh and delightful
summer morning. The
cheeping of the birds
announces the day break. The
boy gets entertained by the
company of the hunter who
blows his clarion from a
distance field and sweet
lullabies of skylark.
He detests going to school on
a sweet summer morning
because ‘it drives all the joy’ he
wishes to enjoy the mirth of
summer. He is tired of being
placed ‘under a cruel
eye’which is the strict
supervision of his teacher.
Instead of enjoying the
pleasures of summer, the child
has to compulsory attended
the school where he spends
his day in boredom and
dismay.
The child expresses his
weariness. He sits ‘drooping’
in the sea of boredom. The
restrains the assault on him by
the oppressive personality of
the teacher and his ‘dreary
shower’ (tiresome lectures).
The learning’s bower refers to
a garden where the child can
be taught in a interesting way,
only if nature accompanies
him instead of the school
teacher.
A bird which is born happy
and free can never sing sweet
songs if caged. Similarly, a
child filled with  annoying fear
and tension can never enjoy
the natural instincts of joy and
playfulness. A rigid world will
ruthlessly take away the
beautiful  childhood day of a
person’s life.
The boy complains to the
father and mother, ‘if buds are
nipped, And blossoms blown
away’ where there is no one
to care for. If misery withers
the tender plants the beautiful
buds and the new born buds,
summer can never be joyful.
If care and concern rule over
the plants, flowers, birds, such
a summer will be dry and will
bear no fruit. The child
enquires his parents as to
how they can win back what
grieve has destroyed. If the
plants are withered due to the
canker of grief, no fruit will be
there in the season of autumn,
this implies that if childhood
pleasures and joys are
censored and truncated one
has to be very sure that the
adult life will be utterly dry and
unproductive.

*African poetry*

No.10..
The Theme of Dilemma

The theme of dile also features in the poem, while the poet speaks glowingly of african culture, he also finng european culture, despite its shortcomings, seductive. Thus he is unable to dwcide whether to let go of the inherited culture or embrace the new one this is the plight of many educated africans today . many have however resolved this delimma by taking from the two cultures in what has come to be know as cultual syncretism

The poem speaker concluded that he found himself/herself in dilemma “wandering in the mystic rhythm/of jungle drums and the concerto.”(line 28 & 29) because he didn’t know which culture to totally embrace. He preferred the simple rural life but it was also impossible to let go of the civilisation he had got unto despite it was complex and confusing.
