IN "I HEAR AMERICA SINGING" I THINK THAT THIS POEM DOESN'T MAKE SENSE
BECAUSE IT'S WRITTEN LIKE IN THE OLD FASHINED WAY WITH WEIRD WORDS.THE POET
DIDN'T REALLY MAKE A POINT.

In the poem "I Hear America Singing Whitman makes me think that everybody
here started slow and in the end they were the richest man, they loved
working because they were americans, but if hw were alive today he would
say that everything has changed. Now everybody doesn't care,they not
patriac because now it's all about white people and they forgey evrybody
else

what i thought about the poem "I Hear America Singing" was that it was
enjoyable. I think he was trying to say that having a good job to go to
everyday is enjoying. I also think that he's trying to say that jobs are
not always bad there sometimes wonderful. I also think he's trying to say
sing about what you have instead of showing it off to everyone.

I BELIEVE THAT " I HEAR AMERICA SINGING' IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT WORK
VERY HARD DOING THEIR JOB EVERY DAY, AND ARE HAPPY TO BE WORKING FOR GREAT
COUNTRY LIKE AMERICA.

I think that the poem "I hear America Singing" is a very good poem because
it says that you shouldn't hate what you do for a living.If you have to do
it anyways might as well enjoy it.

To me it talks about people singing about the country they love, what makes
people happy about living in the u.s.a.
Makes people want to sing about there prombles. Also makes everbody want to
sing there troubles away.

Hi, I am working on an assignment for english that is to compare the two
poets, Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson. I am not just to state the
obvious; Dickenson is confined and Whitman was out experiencing nature. I
am supposed to find deeper meaning into the poetry and contrast and
compare. If anyone has ideas to help me please, please e-mail me.

has a very good facts about the poeple. Look at America now! How is it! the
poem has nothing antmore for someone to read cause it's pointless!

When I read this poem, I find Whitman only thought of the people who did
physical labour. Did they represent all Americans?
