Snow Analysis

1935The room was suddenly rich and the great bay-window wasSpawning snow and pink rose against it

Soundlessly collateral and incompatible:World is suddener than we fancy it.World is crazier and more of it than we think,

Incorrigibly plural. I peel and portion

A tangerine and spit the pips and feel

The drunkenness of things being various.And the fire flames with a bubbling sound for world

Is more spiteful and gay than one supposes --

On the tongue on the eyes on the ears in the palms of one's hands--

There is more than glass between the snow and the huge roses.

.: :.

there are visual elements in the poem. we can visualize the room and also the poet in it through the images such as \'pink roses in a vase\' , \'a fireplace\' and a man who is aeting a tangerine. these images in the poem are about our sense of touch, eat, tongue, smell.
the poet sees the familiar things in another perspective. there is something unusual,special about all these.the co-existence of opposites make the poet surprised. the poet is become aware of the co-existence of opposite things, the diversity, variety. the diversity makes the poet drunken. there is snow out of the doors and it is cold altough there are pink roses and fire inside.

Clearly, MacNeice is challenging the way we typically view the physical world. The juxtapositioning of conflictual elements invites the reader to find the world beautiful because of its complicated dichotomy, rather than for its over simplified traditional forms. In the end, however, still not all of the senses can be employed. The "more than glass" is the reader's preconceived notions and unwillingness to break the boundaries of the acceptable views of natural beauty.
