The poem o captain my captain to me was analysed as a cry to his fatheron
his death bed. hes crying out to his father with the pain he fells for him.
"but o heart! heart1 heart!" he also wants to let his father know that he
is always their for him, but his father dose not relise it. "my father dose
not feel my arm, he has no pulse or will." he says it like his father is
not trying. like his father never wanted to have support from his son. when
he says, "from fearfull trip," he was talking about the hardships in his
fathers life that they had to face, such as raising his nine kids. walt
whitman is one of my many favort writers, not ony becuse of what is realy
behind his poems, but what they realy contain. this is my first time
writing down what i thought a poem ment, i always just do it in my head.
but this one is realy a true favorit and it desurved it. please email me
