Up -Hill Analysis



Author: Poetry of Christina Georgina Rossetti Type: Poetry Views: 1795





Does the road wind up-hill all the way?

Yes, to the very end.

Will the day's journey take the whole long day?

From morn to night, my friend.



But is there for the night a resting-place?

A roof for when the slow dark hours begin.

May not the darkness hide it from my face?

You cannot miss that inn.



Shall I meet other wayfarers at night?

Those who have gone before.

Then must I knock, or call when just in sight?

They will not keep you standing at that door.



Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak?

Of labour you shall find the sum.

Will there be beds for me and all who seek?

Yea, beds for all who come.

uphill is a poem in which the authour wants to say is that life is very difficult and we will have many difficulties in our life , but we have to show our hardwork, prosperity and our willpower

Up-hill, the road symbolizes the journey the speaker takes. Instead of being straight, the fact that it is ‘winding’ and ‘up-hill’ suggests that the path is long and difficult.Metaphorically the ‘inn’ represents security.The inn which Joseph and his pregnant wife Mary sought for rest and a chance to give birth to Jesus. Although there was ‘no room for them in the inn’.

uphill is about an oscillation between anxieties and hope of our earthly life. social, religious and economic frustration cause such oscillations and we always pine for relief. At the end, not certainly the death but very concept of equality is suggested for the remedy. The inn is an abode(the uphill journey is to attain such an ideal society) of no social discrimination, humiliation and hatred. Rossetti fancies an image of justice when the world will be subdued under slow dark hours. ANINDYA SINGHAROY; BURDWAN

.: :.

The poem operates on two levels.
The first one being the literal one and the second one being a spiritual level. The journey can be referred to both the levels. Its an allegory. The first voice is that of innocence and the secoond one is that of experience in both the cases. Thus, each line, rather each conversation has got a double meaning.

The poem \"Uphill\" is a conversative poem which progresses in question and answer form. Rhyme scheme of the poem is x poem defines the journey of a person from life to afterlife concerned in between about death. Uphill in the poem suggests that life is not an easy tackle, but one has to thrive harder forever. The first speaker is probably concerned about life after death and he asks another person about death and what\'s it like after death. The second person explains that to get to death one must travel long till death comes to self, and there are lot of other wayfarers who would join on the route. It depends on self and his deeds whether he would go to Heaven or Hell. To have a peaceful resting place one has to labour hard and lead a virtuous journey till darkness (death).

i think its about a person who is stuggiling through life and she wonders what the end will be like. She is unsure and worried

Can't this poem be about slavery too? The other wayfarers at night could be the other escaping slaves that have already escaped to freedom once. and the inn that you cannot miss even in the darkness could be the secret houses that they had along the Underground Railroad. the inns provide comfort, sleep, and food for the travelers. and usually, a slave's journey does take morning to night, until they reach the end.

.: Up-hill :.

I think this poem is about a traveler who is fearing the journey to death. in the first stanza, the traveler seems worried about how hard the journey will be. in the second, if there's a resting place at the end. in the third, if people will be there for fellowship, and in the fourth the end of the road. the poem starts out in nervous apprehension, but ends in peaceful assurance.

.: poem :.

the poem is an allegory it consists a seris of questions by a weary traveller and the answers seem to be given by an unknown guide who has already travelled the path.its a lovely and moving meditation on death(the bed where one "rests in peace") and its relation to life (the road travelled on).

.: Analysis :.

The poem is in a A-B A-B structure.
Its basically a bout Rosetti asking a "person", probably an angel about LIFE.

The poem focuses on life and wad happens after it ends.
Night = Death
Light = Birth.

.: POEM :.

i think that this poem is about a person that is taking a giant poop, she is taking it in another persons hotel.! ...room...It seems that, in the poem, Rossetti expresses near certainty that death is a relief of life; however, I think that the main point of the poem is that life is a journey, and will always be one. The journey never stops, never ends. Death is imminent, but it should not be viewed with fear -- it is simply a rest after the journey of life
