The poem “Cassius Hueffer” written by Edgar Lee Masters is another one of
Masters free verse epitaphs. Like the poem “George Gray” by Masters, this
poem is written about a dead man who is looking at his grave and reading
what it says on the tombstone. Cassius Hueffer seemed disappointed in what
he read on his tombstone because it was the opposite of what his life
really was. This shows that throughout Hueffer’s life, no one really knew
the real him and Hueffer was keeping his feelings and emotions to himself.
Masters had used personification in this poem giving nature human
characteristics, “That nature might stand up and say to all the world…”
(Masters). This is saying that nature has stood up and said something just
like every person does.

" Cassius Hueffer " is a morbid poem about what it says on a mans
tombstone. This poem shows a dark and sad side of his writing. It also
much like his other work tells about his sad life and his hardship growing
up

Interesting poem. This is a practice comment.

This epitaph has a very ironic tone in that it uses epitaphs inside the
epitaph to describe the writter. This creates a sense that the person who
the epitaph was written for was to richious to be described in one
sentence. Also it alludes to the actual grave stone twice and creates a
false reality in its own security of the tomb.
