The Bagel Analysis

Author: poem of David Ignatow Type: poem Views: 3

Sponsored Links

I stopped to pick up the bagel

rolling away in the wind,

annoyed with myself

for having dropped it

as if it were a portent.

Faster and faster it rolled,

with me running after it

bent low, gritting my teeth,

and I found myself doubled over

and rolling down the street

head over heels, one complete somersault

after another like a bagel

and strangely happy with myself.

.: :.

Recently in our English class, we deciphered David Ignatow\'s The Bagel. We discovered deeper meaning and found that the bagel was a metaphor for the man\'s childhood. At first the man thinks childhood is something he wants to give away and get rid of but then realizes that he needs it. When chasing the \"bagel\" down the street he turns into a \"bagel\" himself, meaning while chasing down his childhood he relives some of the fun of his childhood that he initially wanted to give away.
