Gwendolyn Brooks World View
Transcript of Gwendolyn Brooks World View
In this poem "Sunset of the City" GwendolynBrooks says that she is a women who hurries through her prayers.It seems like she is a person that is impatience when she go through some things in the world.In the last stanzas line 27 & 28 Gweendolyn Brooks quotes "Whether to dry in humming pallor or to leap and die," it seems like she looks at the world as if its like whatever to her like life is careless. "A Sunset of the City" Gwendolyn brooks wanted the African Americans to look at the world as if it was a big opportunity to do things with out feeling insecure about them self's because of the things they went through. "After the Harlem Renaissance, the choice for Afro-American poets was either to write "academic" poetry to reflect the Afro-American world through artificial devices, insincere language, falsified images and clinched metaphors and symbols or to bring poetry back to the people which requires new symbols, images and metaphors.The World of Gwendolyn Brooks represents a return to the spirit of the old tradition.Her poetry reveals the ancient in the guise of the modern, the dedicated Afro-American of humane sensibility in the guise of the philosopher-poet. ("God gave Noah the rainbow sign, no mo' water, but fire next" sang the ancients. "This is the urgency," writes Miss Brooks. "Live! / and have your blooming in the noise of the whirlwind.") The four volumes of poetry and the fictional work Maud Martha, included here, reveal a firm control of technique and form and reflect the growth of the poet's awareness."
