This was a good one.

I liked the way you explained. Could you give explanation of class 6 poems? The entire poem follows the journey of the wind, wherein it first begins from the sea and throughout the journey speaks,whispers,shouts and screams to several other entities.

Since these are actions wadswoorth by people,or more specifically by a “person”,the grammatical term for the same is personification. In philosophical terms, the wind has been outlines to play the role of an entity that resembles that of a person.

The poem has been described well but there remains an indepth analysis untouched. The wind is a symbol of revolution possible in the world where the darkness stands for bondage and oppression and the daylight all for hope of betterment.

Perspectives are certainly a strange thing. The metaphorical approach you’ve adopted is nice Thank you for the analysis. I had confusion regarding the last couplet. It is a bit cleared now.

Daybreak by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Adding a little note,due to phenomena of high and low pressure arising from the difference in temperature because of the climate around the sea,winds generally flow from the sea to the land at day and the vice versa happens at night. As given in the textbook,Longfellow presents day as a special presence that is hailed and before whom everybody bows.

However,it can also be interpreted and personified as a source of joy and freshness that it keeps spreading around itself. Primarily,the wind rushes out and clears the mist as if almost telling the mist to make room for it. It announces the beginning of a fresh morning giving an indication to the mariners who can now set sail as they would be able to steer their ship through the waters,now that the night is gone.

And then it ultimately leaves the sea and makes its way towards the land ending the reign of sleep and announcing the rise of day. It makes the foliage in the forest move along merrily as if almost telling them to hang their leafy banners out. It wadworth the wood-bird possibly a Wood thrush,owing to the fact hat is found in North America and is reported to have one of the sweetest lomgfellow among birds.

The sixth couplet describes the surroundings and the time by adding the fact that the wind encourages the rooster expressed in the poem as the chanticleer to bellow her clarion as it is the arrival of day. The next couplet again shifts to the merry journey of the wind and makes the lonbfellow fields bow to the morning. It makes the church bell ring belfry tower refers to the tower that houses the bell in a church.

The literary term used in this couplet particularly is personification. The morning here is personified as a respectable personality in front of whom the corn fields show reverence by bowing down.


The last couplet is a legendary touch wadswortb transforms the entire mood of the poem. This brings out Longfellow’s style of imparting cultural and moral values in his poetry.
