Eager To Be Praised Analysis

Author: poem of Robinson Jeffers Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

Goethe, they say, was a great poet, Pindar, perhaps,

  was a great poet, Shakespeare and Sophocles

Stand beyond question. I am thinking of the few, the


Who died fulfilled.

                         I think of Christopher Marlowe,

                          stabbed through the eye in a tavern

                          brawl by a bawdy serving-man,

Spilling his youth and brains on the greasy planks.

  I think of young Keats,

Wild with his work unfinished, sobbing for air, dying in Rome.

  I think of Edgar Poe

And Robert Burns. I think of Lucretius leaving his poem unfinished

  to go and kill himself. I think of Archilochus

Grinning with crazy bitterness. I think of Virgil

In despair of his life-work, begging his friends to destroy it,

  coughing his lungs out.

     Yet the young men

Still come to me with their books and manuscripts,

Eager to be poets, eager to be praised, eager as Keats.

  They are mad I think.
