Hold His Horses
In Ann Keith’s “With Rite and Rune,” to what kind of anthology might this poem serve as an epigraph?
In Mike Acker’s “At Sunset”:
- What details might indicate that the setting and person are real? What elements are figurative? Why does the man dig?
- Do blue, yellow and black seem to have symbolic value? If so, what might it be?
- The red poppy becomes the Canadian national flower in the first eleven days of November. Why?
In Don Webb’s “The Absurd of the Theatre,” a knowledge of Samuel Beckett’s play En attendant Godot would obviously help, but is it really indispensable?
In Marie Chapman’s “The Horses of Marly”:
- The horse statues change repeatedly. What do they come to symbolize for the narrator?
- What indicates that the narrator does not actually see what he says he sees?
- Is the narrator actually where he says or thinks he is? What might indicate that he is in a jail cell rather than a hotel room or embassy office?
- The narrator says the police have charged him with murder. Whose murder?
