Woman At The Wall
The woman is grieving because she has lost her son in the war. Emotions that are shown through the poem are deep sorrow and suffering. I really like how the poem personifies what the woman does, such as putting her arm around the name's shoulder. The personification emphasizes to the reader just how badly the woman yearns for her son to really be there. I have also lost loved ones, which helps me relate to the woman, especially in losing my father. It is the worst thing in the world to lose someone who is close to you. The pain is indescribable. Coming to reality with a death takes great time; the fact that it is permanent is so awful. I think that this is what the woman is suffering over within the poem.
