we Analysis Of Storm In The Black Forest By D.H. Lawrence ~ Naija Poets

The Overview

The poem was written at nighttime_ I guess_ when it was about to rain.

I supposed that D. H. Lawrence picked his paper and pen when the effect of thunder lightning on rain marvelled him.

It was shown in the second and third stanzas of the poem:
"And as the electric liquid pours out, sometimes
a still brighter white snake wriggles among it, spilled
and tumbling wriggling
down the sky:
and then the heavens crackle with uncouth sounds.
And the rain won't come, the rain refuses to come!"

Besides the use of inner rhymes and repetition of words and sounds, the poet sewed a garment of imagery to give the poem, the beauty it deserved by painting a vivid picture of thundercloud in stanza one and that of a thunderbolt in stanza two.

Thunder was described as "gold-bronze flutters neat through the thick upper air"
Lightning was described as "brighter white snake wriggles".

The ending part of the poem, D. H. Lawrence declared how useful the light produced by thunder would be for human electricity generation.

THE POEM:

The Storm In The Black Forest

Now it is almost night, from the bronze soft sky
jug full after jug full of pure white liquid fire, bright white
tipples over and spills down,
and is gone
and gold-bronze flutters beat through the thick upper air.

And as the electric liquid pours out, sometimes
a still brighter white snake wriggles among it, spilled
and tumbling wriggling down the sky:
and then the heavens crackle with uncouth sounds.

And the rain won't come, the rain refuses to come!

This is the electricity that man is supposed to have mastered
chained, subjugated to his own use!

supposed to!
