I've had the privilege to study Mr. Edson's work this semester and I must
say that he will go down as my favorite poet throughout literature. To the
other commenter, Amy, This poem has nothing to do with animal cruelty. The
ape, represents man's primal side. The constant clash between man and ape
in Edson's works, is not a battle between two individuals, it's a battle
within man himself. The necessity for constant balance between the
civilized side and the animal(ape) side of man is the point that Edson was
trying to convey. The poem, Ape, is of man conquering his primal side.

This poem is away to bring people's attention to the severity of animal
cruelty
