miniver cheevy is just like everyone else. Yes - he handles his problems
differently than some by drinking, but we all have a fantasy world in which
we want to live in. drinking may not be how we cope with the fact that we
can't live in our fantasy worlds, but i'm sure there is something that some
people do that others may find unusual ...

Miniver apparently wishes to escape to a simpler, storybook world rather
than confront things as they are. Perhaps he may find it in a bottle.

One of problems of miniver is his nostalgyc strong connection to the past
that enables somehow to live in the present/another contrast is the
love/hatred for money . Society requires of him earn a living, and he
belives in Art for Art sake

I think that Robinson is telling the reader that no matter how frustarating
a dream can be that someting you dream about and you know can never be
obtained can still be something to strive for. Using your imagination only
brings out your inner child and your real hopes and dreams. i think
Robinson is telling the reader not to give up on themselves and keep
pursuing what we want.

Miniver Cheevy is a guy whose depressed and thinks the reason he is having
problems is because of the time period he lives in. Miniver starts to think
that he was born to late and he wishes he was born in the midevil times.

When the character in the poem drinks, he seems to imagine a completely
different world. A wolrd of fantasy which he was never born into. He
wishes he would have been born earlier, in a time of fantasy. He loathes
the idea of having to live in the wolrd he lives in now.

This poem by Robinson represents his desire to live in the past. He refers
to medieval times of Camelot and Thebes where bold knights and warriors
glorified his image. Robinson despises the time period in which he is born
and quotes, "He wept that he was ever born".

this poem i think represent a persons hopes and dreams. miniver dreams of
living in the medevil times and hates the fact that he is stuck living in
the present. i think everyone wishes they could live in a different place
or time. Robinson only helps us remember our chilish desires in this poem.
