Fiddler Jones Analysis

Author: poem of Edgar Lee Masters Type: poem Views: 16

Sponsored Links

The earth keeps some vibration going

There in your heart, and that is you.

And if the people find you can fiddle,

Why, fiddle you must and for all your life.

What do you see, a harvest ofclover?

Or a meadow to awlk through to the river?

The wind's in the corn; you rub your hands

for beeves hereafter ready for market;

Or else you hear the rustle of skirts

Like the girls when dancing at Little Grove.

To Cooney Potter a pillar of dust

Or whirling leaves meant ruinous drouth;

They looked to me like Red-Head Sammy

Stepping it off, to "Toor-a-Loor."

How could I till my forty acres

Not to speak of getting more,

With a medley of horns, bassoons and piccolos

Stirred in my brain by crows androbins

And the creak of a wind-mill—only these?

And I never started to plow in my life

That some one did not stop in the road

And tkae me away to a dance or picnic.

I ended up with forty acres;

I ended up with a broken fiddle—

And a broken laugh, and a thousand memories.

And not a single regret.

Fiddler Jones deals with the concept of being true to yourself. To make choices that are true to your nature and live those choices fully without regret.
Masters states that who you are is laid out for you to discover. Once discovered, you must be true to yourself in order to live a life that is content. The poem illustrates desires that are not true to your nature are desires that are not worth achieving.
Lastly, your nature is found by self discovery. Once discovered, your interaction with others will solidify your path, one action after another, your role in life becomes inevitable.

I think this poem is about the memories we make. Fiddler Jones had a life with no regrets but lots of memories. Think about that. :)

This poem is about all people in general, their lives, and their passions.
It\'s message is related to the fact that people set goals for themselves and meet wonderful people in the process of their journey.
It tells people not to give up or be stopped by minor mishaps.
I see the theme as it being more about the people you meet along the way, rather than your final destination.
In this poem, I see Masters as trying to express no matter how far you fall, or sidetracked you get, you learn from your mistake and should live with no regrets.

This poem is about life in general. It speaks of how we set goals in life and the wonderful people who we meet while trying to obtain these goals. I think that it tell us that its ok to meet a roadblock or get detoured along the way sometimes. People are what matters seems to be a theme of this poem. The farmer met people who \"sidetracked\" him off to other adventures but when he looked back, he had no regrets of it. It\'s a beautiful and very insightful poem.

This short poem is about a man whom is a fiddler. He lives life to the fullest and has no regrets. He does take a few wrong steps on his way through life but just keeps on going. He ends up on a small plot of land with his dreams broken, but he had an adventure along the way and does not regret his life.
