November Cotton Flower Analysis

Author: Poetry of Jean Toomer Type: Poetry Views: 1491

Boll-weevil's coming, and the winter's cold,

Made cotton-stalks look rusty, seasons old,

And cotton, scarce as any southern snow,

Was vanishing; the branch, so pinched and slow,

Failed in its function as the autumn rake;

Drouth fighting soil had caused the soil to take

All water from the streams; dead birds were found

In wells a hundred feet below the ground--

Such was the season when the flower bloomed.

Old folks were startled, and it soon assumed

Significance. Superstition saw

Something it had never seen before:

Brown eyes that loved without a trace of fear,

Beauty so sudden for that time of year.

\"Brown eyes that loved without a trace of fear,
Beauty so sudden for that time of year.\"
it\'s related to the flower, and the flower represents hope, how it\'s \"without a trace of fear\", and still appears even in tribulation.

This poem is a petrarchan sonnet, posing a question, or problem in the first 8 lines, and the response or answer in the last 6 lines. its not evident, cause toomer doesn't put in a line break that is normally associated with this type of poem. The beginning is the hopelessness that the African Americans must face. All these discriptions show just how impossible the situation seems. Then, the cotton flower bloomed. The Harlem Renaissance is that bloom, showing the first chance of hope in the situation, and the old folk that were surprised? were litteraly the older generation of people that thought nothing but suffering was possible.

November Cotton Flower by Jean Toomer has to do with Toomer's other work, Karintha. It shows her realizing her beauty and encourages the African Americans to realize their own beauty and identity. by steph

I think this poem is a great reminder of how we can't control every situation in life

This person is an idiot, it's called spell check. Just a heads up, its “African”, and I think you meant “instilled”, not installed.

this poem shows strong aferican american people suffering from oppression and them trying to cope with the truths and struggles of everyday life. very vivid and richly textured poem. Brown eyes that loved without a trace of fear,
Beauty so sudden for that time of year. (Toomer) Showed how aftericans coped with being strong and worked toward loving with out fear even though fear had been installed in them growing up also it is showing to break free from the chains of slavery and the stero typical "cotton picking black" it told them to stand strong work even though it is going to be hard and you may have to endure hardtimes but do not let people tell you that you can not do it.
