To A New England Poet Analysis

Though skilled in Latin and in Greek,

And earning fifty cents a week,

Such knowledge, and the income, too,

Should teach you better what to do:The meanest drudges, kept in pay,Can pocket fifty cents a day.Why stay in such a tasteless land,

Where all must on a level stand,

(Excepting people, at their ease,

Who choose the level where they please:)See Irving gone to Britain's courtTo people of another sort,He will return, with wealth and fame,While Yankees hardly know your name.Lo! he has kissed a Monarch's--hand!

Before a prince I see him stand,

And with the glittering nobles mix,

Forgetting times of seventy-six,

While you with terror meet the frown

Of Bank Directors of the town,The home-made nobles of our times,Who hate the bard, and spurn his rhymes.Why pause?--like Irving, haste away,

To England your addresses pay;

And England will reward you well,Of British feats, and British arms,The maids of honor, and their charms.Dear bard, I pray you, take the hint,

In England what you write and print,

Republished here in shop, or stall,

Will perfectly enchant us all:It will assume a different face,And post your name at every place,From splendid domes of first degreeWhere ladies meet, to sip their tea;From marble halls, where lawyers plead,Or Congress-men talk loud, indeed,To huts, where evening clubs appear,And 'squires resort--to guzzle Beer.

.: :.

Ferneau says that English poets take their income for the knowledge they give and tedious work they do. He believes that Britain is a tasteless land and not everyone there is accepted. Texas criminals go to Britain\'s court and then later return with wealth and fame, however Americans don\'t even know their name. Behold the people who kissed the King\'s hand and he was ironic because of the pause before hand stating the mockery that what else could he have possibly kissed. The British maids of honor have charms in British feasts and he makes fun of the enumeration of feasts. The poems that are written are published. The marble halls and the tea where ladies meet and clubs where men meet are the descriptions of places in Britain.
