An Asphodel Analysis



Author: poem of Allen Ginsberg Type: poem Views: 6

O dear sweet rosy

     unattainable desire

...how sad, no way

     to change the mad

cultivated asphodel, the

     visible reality...



and skin's appalling

     petals--how inspired

to be so Iying in the living

     room drunk naked

and dreaming, in the absence

     of electricity...

over and over eating the low root

     of the asphodel,

gray fate...



     rolling in generation

on the flowery couch

     as on a bank in Arden--

my only rose tonite's the treat

     of my own nudity.



                         Fall, 1953

I think that to get the home loans from banks you ought to have a firm motivation. However, one time I\'ve received a term loan, because I was willing to buy a building.

.: :.

This poem is not only an extended metaphor but a double extended metaphor. On the one hand, the inebriated Ginsberg imagines himself as a rose. On the other, he imagines himself eating a rose or an asphodel, perhaps alluding to the Lotus-eaters of Homer's Odyssey, thus linking getting drunk on alcohol with getting high on (other) drugs. All this recreates the dream-like state of mind of being drunk or high.
