Analysis and comments on Henry Phipps by Edgar Lee Masters

Henry Phipps

This poem brings some sort of reality check to its meaning we see a man who
had multiple jobs but when the bank crashes he is left with nothing. This
is an interesting poem because it was written 10 or more years before the
Great Depression so the same thing Henry Phipps had to go through many
Americans would read this poem and think similarly to how Henry would think
in his poem.
