Lion In An Iron Cage Analysis

Author: poem of Nazim Hikmet Type: poem Views: 27

Sponsored Links

Look at the lion in the iron cage,

look deep into his eyes:

              like two naked steel daggers

              they sparkle with anger.

But he never loses his dignity

              although his anger

                     comes and goes

                              goes and comes.

You couldn't find a place for a collar

round his thick, furry mane.

Although the scars of a whip

        still burn on his yellow back

his long legs

           stretch and end

        in the shape of two copper claws.

The hairs on his mane rise one by one

                 around his proud head.

His hatred

        comes and goes

                 goes and comes ...

The shadow of my brother on the wall of the dungeon


              up and down

                        up and down.

.: :.

i feel like this poem represents oppression. the lion is oppressed but he is still dignified. the lion could just as easily be the human race.
