Each And All Analysis

Author: poem of Ralph Waldo Emerson Type: poem Views: 6

Little thinks, in the field, yon red-cloaked clown,
Of thee, from the hill-top looking down;
And the heifer, that lows in the upland farm,
Far-heard, lows not thine ear to charm;
The sexton tolling the bell at noon,
Dreams not that great Napoleon
Stops his horse, and lists with delight,
Whilst his files sweep round yon Alpine height;
Nor knowest thou what argument
Thy life to thy neighbor's creed has lent:
All are needed by each one,
Nothing is fair or good alone.

I thought the sparrow's note from heaven,
Singing at dawn on the alder bough;
I brought him home in his nest at even;—
He sings the song, but it pleases not now;
For I did not bring home the river and sky;
He sang to my ear; they sang to my eye.

The delicate shells lay on the shore;
The bubbles of the latest wave
Fresh pearls to their enamel gave;
And the bellowing of the savage sea
Greeted their safe escape to me;
I wiped away the weeds and foam,
And fetched my sea-born treasures home;
But the poor, unsightly, noisome things
Had left their beauty on the shore
With the sun, and the sand, and the wild uproar.

The lover watched his graceful maid
As 'mid the virgin train she strayed,
Nor knew her beauty's best attire
Was woven still by the snow-white quire;
At last she came to his hermitage,
Like the bird from the woodlands to the cage,—
The gay enchantment was undone,
A gentle wife, but fairy none.

Then I said, "I covet Truth;
Beauty is unripe childhood's cheat,—
I leave it behind with the games of youth."
As I spoke, beneath my feet
The ground-pine curled its pretty wreath,
Running over the club-moss burrs;
I inhaled the violet's breath;
Around me stood the oaks and firs;
Pine cones and acorns lay on the ground;
Above me soared the eternal sky,
Full of light and deity;
Again I saw, again I heard,
The rolling river, the morning bird;—
Beauty through my senses stole,
I yielded myself to the perfect whole.

.: :.

It appears that Emerson believed that each item or being was made whole by the fact that it had a place in a context with all. He uses various examples and approaches. Most are unaware of their own importance, or of the importance of everything, every nit, in the totalness surrounding them. Each component of the poem is different in its description, but ultimately leads to the wonderful ending. Here the author realizes that everything is interwoven. "I inhaled the violet's breath."

.: :.

In the first stanza, the speaker doesn\'t care what his religious based society and government think about him. He doesn\'t like his strict government, and he doesn\'t believe anyone around him does either, but they\'re all to scared to say anything about it. He soon starts to realize it doesn\'t matter. What matters is the beauty and nature around him. He realizes you can\'t have just one individual piece of beauty, to each is all. He also realizes you lose the beauty in yourself when you get older, but as long as you appreciate the beauty in your life you will always be happy and satisfied. No matter what kind of government you\'re unsatisfied with, or what personal issue you have.

The author believes that, when taken from their surroundings, everything loses its beauty, or specialness. He is almost ready to accept that fact, until he learns to see the beauty in his surroundings as a whole. It wasn't that the individual components had lost their beauty, they were just more beautiful when viewed together as a whole.
