  1. from Song of Myself 52 The spotted hawk swoops by

  2. Summary • The hawk gets angry for the man just hanging around • The man says he too is like the hawk, he's just as free and just as important • The man says he's a part of this world-he’s a part of the circle of life • He also says that he’s always moving with this world-you look for him, he waits for you

  3. Sound Devices • Parallelism: “I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable”(Whitman 3) This adds emphasis to what he and the hawk are both • Alliteration: “and filter and fiber your blood. Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged..”(Whitman13-14) this gives the sentence a smoother and easier melody.

  4. Sound Devices • Catalogue: “I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric yawp..I depart as air, I shake my white locks.. i effuse my flesh in eddies..I bequeath myself.. i stop somewhere waiting for you.(Whitman) this device adds emphasis to what he precisely is; all along he’s just like the hawk and everything else in the world.

  5. Imagery • “The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering.” (Whitman 1) here you can see a hawk literally swoop down beside a man and get angry about the man just hanging around and not filling his potential.

  6. Metaphors • “He complains of my gab and my loitering” (Whitman 1) • “I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable” (Whitman 2) • “if you want me again look for me under your boot-soles”(Whitman 10) • “but I shall be good health to you nevertheless, and filter and fiber your blood” ( Whitman 12-13)

  7. Metaphor Explanation • Line 1: This says how the hawk, representing the natural growth of world, is mad at Whitman for just hanging around and fulfilling his potential the world has for him. • Line 2 : This line says how he too is like the hawk, who is the world. He is also free, he is also untamed. He has complete freedom.

  8. Metaphor Explanation • Line 10 : This line says that he is the land growing underneath you. At the beginning of this poem he say how death isn't really death, it’s the beginning of new grown. When he dies, he's not dead. He's the world growing underneath you • Line 12-13 : These lines say that he is the world, and you don’t know it yet from the ignorance you portray but you are as well a part of him. We’re all nature. Even know you don’t know this, he still treats you right.

  9. Themes Whitman believes that the entire world is connected. He says we’re all made of atoms, so we must all be connected. He also says death is not really dead, its new growth and life. “If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles” (Whitman 10) This line says how when he dies he wont be just a decaying corps, but he will be the growth and the grass, the world, growing right before you.
