Transcript of Tramp, by Rupert M. loydell

In this presentation, we will be looking at inferences made in the poem 'Tramp' by Rupert M. Loydell. We will also be explaining, in detail, these points by including evidence from the text.
First analysis
at first glance you would assume that the poet is refering to the tramp as being crazy as the poem calls the homeless man a "Mad" prophet, however when the quote is actually analysed you can see that he is also called a "prophet." this implies that he has more knowledge than anyone else and that he is also closer to god than anyone else; or that he is a messenger from god.

And hope he keeps away. No
