I am supposed to do a litterary analysis on a peom of my choice and I find this one very interesting. I also wanted to know if my vision of the poem makes sense.
She expresses the feeling of starting with almost nothing (when she was born) and later on, because everyone everyone used up what the hade received from God, she is the richest one. She wants to continue to be the richest and get all attention, so she doesent help the others by dividing what she has left. She probably also wants them to get a lesson from it and doesent want to share so that next time they get something, they will keep it for hard times.
this is what i thougth about this poem but I cant figure out what God gave her, it obviousely cannot be bread so could it be talent?
