Eating Together Analysis



Author: poem of Li-Young Lee Type: poem Views: 6

In the steamer is the trout

seasoned with slivers of ginger,

two sprigs of green onion, and sesame oil.

We shall eat it with rice for lunch,

brothers, sister, my mother who will

taste the sweetest meat of the head,

holding it between her fingers

deftly, the way my father did

weeks ago. Then he lay down

to sleep like a snow-covered road

winding through pines older than him,

without any travelers, and lonely for no one.

The family is eating and the son reviews his mother eating the head of the fish. This means that she has to take the lead in the family since the father has passed away.

This is understandable that money makes us independent. But how to act if one does not have money? The only one way is to receive the loan and secured loan.

It is probably from a child\'s point of view. The child describes eating dinner and the child\'s mind wanders off to thinking about the deceased father. The mother, eating the head of the trout, represents her taking on the role of the head of the family, since the father is gone.

This poem is about a family who has recently lost the father, so the mother is now the head of the family, you can see this when she is eating the head of the fish

.: :.

the head of the fish is the most important part of the fish. the head of something can also mean the top or the leader. The speaker\'s father used to be the head of the family. However, the father dies and the mother is left to become the head of the family and she will take on the role of the leader.

My opinion is that the theme is how eating together as a family is an important event that shouldn\'t be missed. (Because his father is gone now)

Well the poem could have written because of the death of his father that now no longer would eat and enjoys food with them(the family) at the kitchen table.

Eating Together is about a family and thier culture's food, and how the family recipes are handed down from generation to generation. it is also about how eating together is a family event, and the father is very much missed at this time.
