Analysis and comments on The Goose Fish by Howard Nemerov

Comment 3 of 3, added on April 4th, 2006 at 5:39 PM.

This poem exemplifies the conflict between love and death. As soon as the
love is truly born in two people, the opportunity for the death of that
love is facilitated. Death pardons none, and is especially hard on lovers.

When i read this poem...I think it symblifies the art of love and the point
that when people know, it digs at you lyk the fish head grinning..its not a
pleasant sight, and it's lyk you konw that even though you love each
other...you know that when ppl know...not everyone will approve....yeah
thats what i think...and im only 15 :)

I don't know much about poetry ,but I do like the kind that rhymes. I did
have a good picture in mind of the atmosphere of this poem. I could picture
this ugly fish that had washed up on the sand. DON.
