Anecdote Of The Jar Analysis

Author: poem of Wallace Stevens Type: poem Views: 12

Sponsored Links

I placed a jar in Tennessee,

And round it was, upon a hill.

It made the slovenly wilderness

Surround that hill.

The wilderness rose up to it,

And sprawled around, no longer wild.

The jar was round upon the ground

And tall and of a port in air.

It took dominion everywhere.

The jar was gray and bare.

It did not give of bird or bush,

Like nothing else in Tennessee.

the poem explains the struggle between life and what we have to go through to get past everyday challenges we have to come up with ways to cope with our surroundings

The poem illustrates the struggle between man and nature for control over the other. As the jar attempts to. \"tame,\" the nature around it, nature surrounds the jar and in turn flexes its control over the jar.

The jar is artifice, distinct from unregulated nature. Jar is also a word for disturb. Conrad\'s metaphor of the artist as a laborer seen from afar uses the same word: \"If we know he is trying to lift a stone, to dig a ditch, to uproot a stump, we look with a more real interest at his efforts; we are disposed to condone the jar of his agitation upon the restfulness of the landscape; and even, if in a brotherly frame of mind, we may bring ourselves to forgive his failure.\" As the 5/17/10 and 4/11/11 guests observed, the mere disturbance of artifice re-characterizes \"nature\" by making all of nature stand in relation to the artifice, however small the artifice may be.

This poem is about the disruption of the natural order of things. The jar placed there on the hill can only reflect the nature it longs to be a part of. Just like how we long for the nature our past has destroyed. We can only observe from a distance.

Buttel suggests that the speaker would arrange the wild landscape into the order of a still life, and though his success is qualified, art and imagination do at least impose an idea of order on the sprawling reality.

The jar seems to define the landscape. What used to be a slovenly wilderness, now has a defining point. Although seemingly insignificant in its own right, the jar now stands tall as it has its place in the barren landscape.

This poem shows the affect on industrialization on nature. The poem was written after the \"second industrial revolution\" of WWI. The jar (a man made technology) was placed upon a scenic hill, and nature could only work around the jar, much like a city would destroy wildlife. \"It took dominion everywhere\" cities grew rapidly, the jar (or city) was gray and bare (the gray of steel and bare as in no wildlife), it would not give of bird or bush (there was nothing natural about it. It completely changed the area around it.

We see the comparison of science and nature. The jar is science or art, the reality is nature. While the emposes its presence on nature, nature empoeses its presence on the science, art.

.: :.

A complex poem illustrating how the human conscience in writing life or whatever tends to do the impossible thing of being bigger than itself.
