Life Is Fine Analysis



Author: Poetry of Langston Hughes Type: Poetry Views: 2017

I went down to the river,

I set down on the bank.

I tried to think but couldn't,

So I jumped in and sank.I came up once and hollered!

I came up twice and cried!

If that water hadn't a-been so cold

I might've sunk and died.

.: :.

IT\'s basically about a speaker who attempts to suicide but realizes the importance of the sacred life. The message that this poem is giving is basically something like: Appreciate life instead of giving it up

This poem is not about some depressed freako (He-Lu) it is about a normal man that reacts to hurt in a different way than some people. He knows what he is about to do and then decides that it is not worth it, that life is fine after all.
(And don't judge what people will do with their lives, if you haven't been in their situation. Life isn't always that fine to some of us)

when you read the whole poem it speaks about committing sucide yes but then it turns and start to talk about not doing it because life is fine.SO TO SUMMARIZE IT IS SAYINGG YA I WANNA GIVE UP BUT IM NOT GOING TO BECAUSE THOUGH IT MAY SEEM TOUGH RIGHT NOW LIFE IS GOOD AND MINES IS BETTER THAN SOME OTHERS.

.: Poem :.

I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank.

I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I might've sunk and died.

But it was Cold in that water! It was cold!

I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.

I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn't a-been so high
I might've jumped and died.

But it was High up there! It was high!

So since I'm still here livin',
I guess I will live on.
I could've died for love--
But for livin' I was born

Though you may hear me holler,
And you may see me cry--
I'll be dogged, sweet baby,
If you gonna see me die.

Life is fine! Fine as wine! Life is fine!
^ THAT is the whole poem.

Why does the poem not finish? This person must be *$#*&! jokin'. The poem sounds very depressed. From what i conclude, the poem is talkin about a depressed freako who has been dumped by his girlfriend and wants to try to get rid of himself, but cant urge himself to do it. Gosh, really what bothers me is to think that some people really think about this suicicde horribleness and may even do it. OMG!!!

the poem doesn't even finish!!! It makes me very mad. My friend She-Lu thinks that this poem should have the computer be able to read it out loud to the viewers so that a person could think more about the poems real meaning!!!

.: Go? :.

That isn't the whole poem, 2/3 is missing! This does not even begin to catch the essence ot the whole poem. It is not possible to even begin to analyze less than half a poem. The editors of this site need to go out and get the whole, complete poem, rather than just 1/3! Maybe they are trying to save space, but we are being jipped! Now, you may be asking yourself why I am writing such a long message on this. The answer is simple: It won't let me post just one sentence. I have to "work towards an analysis, not just a review". Grrrrrrrrr...
