Analysis and comments on Seth Compton by Edgar Lee Masters

Comment 1 of 1, added on May 18th, 2007 at 5:52 AM.

First of all, his writing reminds me of Emily Dickinson, because he is
talking about his own death. He is thinking about the world and the basic
questions of what is evil and what is good, about what is false and what is
true. I think the 'river' represents the poeple with who he was flowing for
all his life and whose opinion of what is true and what is false he adapted
all life, before he finally started thinking.
