Sorry John but I can't quite catch what you mean. Your comment is such an oxymoron...
First, you say that you can't see the interest in commenting on poems and analyzing them. Well, it's the basic principle of literary criticism, which anyone can dislike. I perfectly understand that you don't like it. But then you can assume that you're being intolerant with people who love it. We know we can't find out what the poet really meant when he/she wrote a poem, but what's interesting for people who read literature is to confront our ideas with others.
Anyway. You don't seem to be liking literature, so my question is this : why are you posting comments on a poetry site??

Honest this takes no skill at all to write.
and you can interpert this anyway you want. Who are we or the english teachers to say what this lady truely meant when she wrote this stuff. For all we know this can mean something completely different. Im tired of having asignments to analize poems that can be interperted 100 different ways.
