Night Shift Analysis

It was not a heart, beating.

That muted boom, that clangor

Far off, not blood in the ears

Drumming up and fever

To impose on the evening.

The noise came from outside:

A metal detonating

Native, evidently, to

These stilled suburbs nobody

Startled at it, though the sound

Shook the ground with its pounding.

It took a root at my coming

Till the thudding shource, exposed,

Counfounded in wept guesswork:

Framed in windows of Main Street's

Silver factory, immense

Hammers hoisted, wheels turning,

Stalled, let fall their vertical

Tonnage of metal and wood;

Stunned in marrow. Men in white

Undershirts circled, tending

Without stop those greased machines,

Tending, without stop, the blunt

Indefatigable fact.

It's snowing right now while I type this. Of csroue it's not accumulating, so that's something! For the last two days my walk to work has been a very wet one! I thought that was an interesting list, too. I'm always open to reading suggestions, so it's kind of nice to have a variety of choices.

Thank you for letting me know it's National Library Week. Perfect exsuce for me to go spend a few hours at the main branch when I get home next week (not that I need an exsuce to do so!). Thanks for sharing the list, too. I love lists, even though I argue with them quite a bit. x x

In her poem "Night Shift" (1957), Sylvia Plath addresses the issue of modern industrialism and how men are becoming enslaved by the machines, as they are in the need of constant care. It also speaks about isolation and lack of love, which adds to describing the brutal hardness of the machinery. Plath uses extended metaphors, diction and enjambment to portray the negative effects that blossom from industrialization.
