e.e cummings- AnaMaria

The two poems is about cars. In the first poem , the driver treats the car as if it were a woman. the poem is a little intense for example: ” avenue i touched the acceleterator and give her the juice, good it “that was agood example of peaks that you can find out in this poem. Also the driver treats his car like if it were alive, well after of that emotional description that he gave us I am sure that he think it is.

In the second poem the author describes his homecoming.
It’s a bit cold, without much emotion, describes a materialized town like :”On sleds inn the false sun the new material rests. One brown child stares and stares into your frozen eyes until the light change and you go forward to work” it is little gray, dark dull .

One thought on “e.e cummings- AnaMaria

    You state the Levine poem is cold and without emotion. Certainly, it doesn’t have the giddy excitement of the e.e. cummings poem but I think Levine’s distress about the state of Detroit and all the problems from pollution to race relations clearly upset him and make him angry. I think there is fury under the words ending in We burn this city every day. He includes us the reader in those guilty for the destruction of Detroit.
