About 'Paradise Come' - your reply to my comment - After I wrote "What's the difference between sensational journalism and poetry?" I tried to answer the question for myself. Surely there's a great difference?? But I couldn't work it out. I guess they are both even descended from song and dance! Glad I'm just a poet and not a scholar because this question would have me flummoxed .... the only thing I could come up with is: "Poetry is supposed to have less bulshyt." But that's probably too optimistic!
Thanks for comment on 'giant'. For meaning, try taking it literally until the last couple of lines ... a lot of pomes are like that: a visual scene with characters (or whatever) is built up, and then in a final 'turn', the poet comments on that and points out more or less what the play refers to.
Comments are teaching me that lots of people's reading don't work the same as mine does! It's sometimes a function of age, sometimes of nationality, sometimes of religion, sometimes type of education .... that is, always some kind of cultural difference, but, wonderfully, all clearly shared in the many flavours of English! What a mighty language!
