For Grace, After A Party Analysis



Author: poem of Frank O'Hara Type: poem Views: 0

Sponsored Links


    You do not always know what I am feeling.
Last night in the warm spring air while I was
blazing my tirade against someone who doesn't
interest
         me, it was love for you that set me
afire,

      and isn't it odd? for in rooms full of
strangers my most tender feelings
                                   writhe and
bear the fruit of screaming. Put out your hand,
isn't there
              an ashtray, suddenly, there? beside
the bed?  And someone you love enters the room
and says wouldn't
                   you like the eggs a little

different today?
                 And when they arrive they are
just plain scrambled eggs and the warm weather
is holding.

.: :.

It\'s about an emotional love affair. the persona is unknowingly in love with someone but is also lusting after someone else because they are unsure and scared and they want something different.
he wrote this after a party for a girl name grace, she is mentioned in the poem.
\"for in rooms full of
strangers my most tender feelings
writhe and
bear the fruit of screaming.\"
he is at a party surrounded by strangers and he has been in situations like this more than once before and has felt each time that his emotional connection with these strangers is quite \"odd\", perhaps he is shy, he desperately wants to reach out to them but is too afraid.
And someone you love enters the room
and says wouldn\'t
you like the eggs a little
different today?

the girl he is initially talking about, perhaps \"grace\", the one in which he loves enters the room either while he is at the party or after it, it is up to your imaginition to decide which room,
and the eggs are metaphoric for something larger, a larger more important aspect of his life, perhaps his elationships, as she asks if he wants them \"different today\"
she brings him the eggs, they are ordinary eggs, perhaps the ordinary eggs are a metaphor for the realisation that she is ordinary much like everyone else he knows, and then he realises within spending the night with her (so we gather now) that she is much like everyone else.
\"and the warm weather is holding\"
- the warm weather from last night is still here, it brings you back to the inital first part of the poem where theyre initially at a party and it brings you back to \"Last night in the warm spring air while I was
blazing my tirade against someone who doesn\'t
interest
me\"
this.
