The Crowd At The Ball Game Analysis



Author: poem of William Carlos Williams Type: poem Views: 11

Sponsored Links



The crowd at the ball game

is moved uniformly

by a spirit of uselessness

which delights them—



all the exciting detail

of the chase



and the escape, the error

the flash of genius—



all to no end save beauty

the eternal—



So in detail they, the crowd,

are beautiful



for this

to be warned against



saluted and defied—

It is alive, venomous



it smiles grimly

its words cut—



The flashy female with her

mother, gets it—



The Jew gets it straight— it

is deadly, terrifying—



It is the Inquisition, the

Revolution



It is beauty itself

that lives



day by day in them

idly—



This is

the power of their faces



It is summer, it is the solstice

the crowd is



cheering, the crowd is laughing

in detail



permanently, seriously

without thought

.: :.

This poem really talks about the mob mentality. How we see different races and cultures and genders all coming as one for a baseball game just to cheer for their favorite team. Outside of the game no one notices the other but with the mob mentality which joins people into unision for one belief, it changes their outlook.
