Analysis and comments on The Disputants by William Carlos Williams

Comment 1 of 1, added on January 10th, 2005 at 10:04 PM.

This poem is a reflection of the real world. Upon the table, there are
different things, different colors. It seems a small meaningless world, but
actually, we are doing put an effort to find a significant meanings in this
world. This is a table situation.
On the other hand, there's a human situation. They are drinking coffees and
talking loudly. We don't know what they are talking about. It looks trivial
and frail thing.
This is a momentary situation. We can describe it in one painting.
