Twenty men crossing a bridge,

Into a village,

Are twenty men crossing twenty bridges,

Into twenty villages,

Or one man

Crossing a single bridge into a village.This is old song

That will not declare itself . . .Twenty men crossing a bridge,

Into a village,

Are

Twenty men crossing a bridge

Into a village.That will not declare itself

Yet is certain as meaning . . .The boots of the men clump

On the boards of the bridge.

The first white wall of the village

Rises through fruit-trees.

Of what was it I was thinking?

So the meaning escapes.The first white wall of the village...

The fruit-trees...

I think that the poem is about people's different
approach to the events and especially art. Twenty men can read one poem with the same idea as well as they can read one poem with twenty different ideas in each mind.

really he's just implanting elements of Cubism in his work the way Stein or other literary persons were during this time period. It was published in 1918, which is directly during the Cubist movement. Basically, if you research Cubism, it will explain the poem. simple

.: analysis :.

Dear Goodness,
If anyone looking for explanation of this great poem comes here, I pray they disregard what has already been said. The poem does not lack a meaning to prove that meanings are fleeting and hard to find. Rather, Wallace Stevens refers to the nature of reality and how an individual's perception of reality is a separate entity from the collective reality of a group. I am not an expert. An expert could explain much clearer. But, God. poetry analysis should not be sent across the web willy nilly to confuse and distract readers. Are there even moderators here? If so, do they 'know' poetry?

.: by Adriana: Analysis :.

The first stanza is setting a situation, but at the same time wants it to be clear to the reader. He asks many questions just to make sure that the reader knows what is going on. But then he is saying that "it will never declare itself", this means that as much as we may ask questions, we probably won't find out or ever know. Sometimes it will not have a meaning that is obvious, but the reader will know it exists or that it is there. At the end it starts to give more imagery, it adds to the information that we have. Then he aks himself a question, I think what this means is that not just the bridge is a barrier, but also the white wall and the fruit trees. This gives another direction in which the poem turns because know it has a different meaning.
