The Red Wheelbarrow
Transcript of The Red Wheelbarrow
a red wheel barrow
glazed with rain water
beside the white chickens. The 2nd and 4th line use colors as adjectives in describing the objects in the poem.
Visual imagery is used in lines 3 and 4, "glazed with rain water, beside the white chickens" The theme of this poem in relation to the Poisonwood Bible is that it shows how, in Adah's words, "We [the Price family] are all waiting now to see what will happen next." (170). Waiting upon a childs death is something the people of Kilanga often are forced to do, this can refer to Ruth May's death. Critics have said that at first "the red wheelbarrow" appears to be very simple and strait forward. But in reality this poem is very deap and filled with riddles.
