T-Title: Our Diseased World We think the poem is about a disease that people are spreading around the world and it’s killing people.
P-Paraphrase This poem is about the speaker talking to Grandpa. The speaker is telling him that there is a disease that is killing a lot of people and they don’t have the cure for it yet.
C-Connotation Firmament- The expanse of the heavens the, sky (considered as fixed above the earth). Begetting- To father, to cause or create. Kinsman- A blood relation or a relation by marriage. Simile- It’s not all that rosy grandpa, we are dying like flies.
C-Connotation (continued) Personification- Beauty that might have outshone the sun is so swiftly, so completely, and so suddenly disfigured. Personification- You wait and you pray for wonders knowing that the end has like the beginning crept upon time and crept upon the beginning.
A-Attitude We think the speaker is sad because all the people around him are dying, but also happy because he and his grandfather are still alive.
A- Attitude We think that the poet is thinking that people need to know that people are dying of diseases and sicknesses caused by diseases like aids and there isn’t a cure for them yet.
S-Shift We think the speaker shifts from being sad to being angry. At the beginning he talks about you seeing you friends and family dying before your very eyes. At the end he gets angry because they had herbs to heal diseases like this but they traded them for things like sugar.
Title (Again) We still think the title is about people dying of a disease because it says that people are dropping like flies and your family and friends are dying because of a sickness like A.I.D.S.
T-Theme We think the theme is that even if diseases around the world happen you shouldn’t try and ignore it.
