"Or Will the Dreamer Wake?" is a poem about endangered animals like polar bears and tigers. The chorus enters the scene in the poem and shows the tigers' wrath, since they are concerned that no one of their kind exists save the curbs. This means that humans are destroying natural habitats and putting lives at risk. To make matters worse, even though many people think that hunting preserves harmlessly manage animal populations, this is not true; instead, it can cause overpopulation and lead to more animals being killed than before.
The poem's speaker asks if the tiger will survive the next day. He explains that he has a dream that night that his house was on fire but that he saved all the animals in his neighborhood with no help from anyone else. In other words, everyone would probably die if the world were really destroyed as there would be no one left to fight the fire or care for those animals who could not take care of themselves.
He concludes by saying that he cannot sleep because he is worried about the tiger. Even though it may seem like the tiger will be okay since the speaker saw him in his dream, this does not mean that it is true. Since people can be cruel and leave animals alone in frozen areas during winter, this creature might have died despite what the speaker thought he saw in his dream.
Will the dreamer awaken? Medora Chevalier cautions the reader against environmental damage in this poem. In the east, a tiger moans in agony at the fate of its young. In the west, an old man dreams he is falling down a well. These are two scenes from The Waste Land, a modernist epic by T. S. Eliot. The poem was written over several years during the late 1920s and early 1930s, but it wasn't published until four years after Eliot's death in 1965. It has been described as one of the most important poems in English literature.
The Waste Land is divided into four parts, each part focusing on a different type of experience: social, sexual, psychological, and political. This poem focuses on the psychological experience of dreaming. As the reader learns in the poem, everyone dreams, but some people only dream about happy things while others dream about terrible things that scare them awake. In the first part of the poem, the dreamer wakes up after his dream with a headache and thinks about all the problems in society such as violence, poverty, war, etc. But later in the poem, it becomes clear that the old man isn't waking up - he is still in his dream and will never escape it.
Langston Hughes wrote the poetry "Dreams." The poem emphasizes the significance of a dream. The poem is divided into two stanzas of four lines each. In the opening verse, the poet figuratively compares a life without a dream to a bird with broken wings that cannot fly. He then declares that he will keep his dream alive by writing it down and sharing it with others.
Hughes' work has been influential in the development of African-American literature and culture. The poet was born on February 5, 1902 in Joplin, Missouri. His father was a minister who later became an insurance agent and his mother was a homemaker. He had three siblings: a brother named Charles; a sister named Marjorie.
When Hughes was still a young boy, his family moved to New York City where they would live for several years. It was here that he learned to love reading and writing. In 1919, the family returned to Missouri where Langston attended Howard University until he graduated in 1926. After graduating, he went back home and worked as a social worker until he decided to go to college again. This time he studied journalism at Columbia University. There he met many famous poets such as Carl Sandburg, Robert Frost, and Ezra Pound.
In 1932, Langston Hughes published his first collection of poems titled Songs of Experience which was followed by More Songs of Experience in 1935.
