we Analysis Of Tempest By Glynn Burridge ~ Naija Poets
This poem by Glynn Burridge is of a sailing experience (a very stormy sailing experience). Though short (8 lines) but descriptive with the byproduct of careful imageries. The poem persona shows the relationship between sky and sea; meaning a cloudy sky can cause a stormy sea. The ship contending the storm was described as old made with woods from a long forgotten forest. The sky was described as dark and cloudy with a hovering bird called a phantom. The sea was described to be stormy, wicked and angry almost drowning the ship.
In the poem, one see the ship, the ocean, the sky, the hovering bird; all with the used image of sight and sound ("old sailing beauty" in line 1, "Yaws dizzily in her century-old duel with a drunken sea" in line 2, "wind-tormented waves and a leaden sky", "in pained falsetto", "riotous rendez-vous", etc.
The poem speaker not only view the sea as animate; metaphorically,
the sea was also compared to a lion "the roar of a pitiless ocean"
