HCMUOi Internet is written with the capital letter in a sentence, by the
way. And hundredths are written not with a point but with a comma. This is
according to the standard. And actually everything is very good..!

To understand the poem, you need first to read Marvell's poem, "To His Coy
Mistress", written in the 17th C.--a great poem about love and the passage
of Time.

I'm studying english literature in university of Qom. last week we had
'English poetrry'but we did not know a heck about literary devices which
were used in 'koblai khan' and the profffessouy scorched us severely. I
read this poem three times and I really apreciated it because half of the
places that the poet mentions are in iran, my country.cities like Isfahan
and Kirmanshah.

First, please note that the creator of this poem is _Not_ Ella Wheeler
Wilcox, but rather is _Archibald MacLeish_. I suspect this is a type,
since the poem is apparently indexed correctly. But the notation on this
page as to author should be corrected.

Second, this poem is fascinating for it's geographical accuracy, as the
earth spins on its axis night falls east to west. But one does not
literally feel "how soft, how silently" the night is approaching - this is
a spiritual or metaphysical interpretation. I have always read it as night
as metaphor for the decline or death of civilization. MacLeish may have
had either of the two 20th Century "World Wars" in mind.

Incidently, I looked up Wilcox on another website. Some of her poems are
well worth looking at.
