Analysis and comments on History by Robert Lowell

Comment 3 of 3, added on April 1st, 2009 at 12:22 PM.

I thought the symbolism was inticing and the imagery painted a beautiful
scene in my head. I think what draws me most to my love of this poem would
be its use of analogies of history. It's alagorical nature has many deep
meanings and I find out more evry time I read this poem. You can clearly
see his political as well as religious views and the theme of
confessionalism is very prominent. Stanza 2 is a good example of that. I'm
just kidding. I have no clue what the hell I'm talking about.
