Winter Landscape Analysis



Author: poem of John Berryman Type: poem Views: 9

The three men coming down the winter hill
In brown, with tall poles and a pack of hounds
At heel, through the arrangement of the trees,
Past the five figures at the burning straw,
Returning cold and silent to their town,

Returning to the drifted snow, the rink
Lively with children, to the older men,
The long companions they can never reach,
The blue light, men with ladders, by the church
The sledge and shadow in the twilit street,

Are not aware that in the sandy time
To come, the evil waste of history
Outstretched, they will be seen upon the brow
Of that same hill: when all their company
Will have been irrecoverably lost,

These men, this particular three in brown
Witnessed by birds will keep the scene and say
By their configuration with the trees,
The small bridge, the red houses and the fire,
What place, what time, what morning occasion

Sent them into the wood, a pack of hounds
At heel and the tall poles upon their shoulders,
Thence to return as now we see them and
Ankle-deep in snow down the winter hill
Descend, while three birds watch and the fourth flies.

.: :.

This is an ekphrastic poem, one written in response to art, in this case to Brueghel\'s Hunters in the Snow (1565). It is one sentence long and appears to be an imagist view, capturing the moment as the painting does. Like Keats\' \"Ode on a Grecian Urn,\" the art is frozen in time, depicting a scene that can never change. \"The long companions they can never reach,\" will always be waiting for the hunters who will be forever returning. Time stands still in art.
