In A Station Of The Metro

"The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough".
The poet is saying the apparition of their faces is in the faces of the
crowd. They are us and we are them. Petals on a flooded earth in a black
death tree.

Ezra Pound achieves more in two lines than a loser like Daniel Schoch will
ever achieve in his miserable little life. You really think this poem is
"Gay," cupcake? What a creative critique. What are you, a 6th grader?

The great intrest in this poem is due to the fact that it is one of the
greatest of the modernist period.
We recently looked at this in class (a group of mostly 15 year olds) and we
came to the conclusion that the poem is talking about the images we get
from literature, I'm not quite sure how we got there but we also talked
about how the two lines relate etc... sorry i cant elaborate more but i
didn't bring my english folder home :S

my college is having us doe a project on a poet. I picked ezra manly do to
this poem. it makes you look at life outside of its daily surroundings. I
think it was made for many interpretations, and that there are. So
interpret this how you want it makes your mind take a new stance in
