Essay Hawk Roosting

Dissertation Hawk Roosting

TheВ personificationВ ofВ aВ hawkВ comparedВ toВ aВ humanВ inВ theВ poemВ " HawkВ Roosting” givesВ aВ chanceВ toВ reflectВ uponВ theВ sharedВ qualitiesВ ofВ theВ twoВ species. В BothВ depictedВ asВ predatorsВ withВ destructive, В selfВ obsessedВ mindВ­sets, В bothВ doВ asВ theyВ pleaseВ withВ littleВ considerationВ ofВ anythingВ else. В WhichВ isВ whyВ man'sВ powerВ andВ ambitionВ hasВ andВ willВ continueВ toВ В leadВ toВ destruction. В

PortrayedВ byВ theВ perspectiveВ ofВ aВ hawk, В TedВ HughesВ usesВ thisВ birdВ ofВ preyВ toВ depictВ mankind'sВ attitudeВ towardsВ itsВ surroundingsВ inВ hisВ poemВ " HawkВ Roosting”. В TheВ hawkВ hasВ anВ airВ superiorityВ andВ arroganceВ aboutВ it, В thisВ isВ evidentlyВ shownВ multipleВ timesВ throughoutВ theВ composition. В ItВ seesВ itselfВ asВ theВ apexВ predator, В andВ isВ ignorantВ toВ thatВ whichВ itВ doesВ notВ deemВ important. В InВ theВ thirdВ stanzaВ theВ hawkВ statesВ " IВ killВ whereВ iВ pleaseВ becauseВ itВ isВ allВ mine. ” ThisВ veryВ clearlyВ demonstratesВ itsВ arroganceВ andВ superiorityВ whichВ itВ seesВ itself. В ButВ isВ itВ trulyВ superior? В PerhapsВ itВ is, В thoughВ itВ isВ evidentВ thatВ itВ hasВ everyВ intentВ toВ stayВ onВ topВ ofВ itsВ foodВ sequence, В toВ whichВ IВ referВ toВ theВ quoteВ inВ theВ finalВ stanzaВ " NothingВ hasВ changedВ sinceВ IВ began. В MyВ eyeВ hasВ permittedВ noВ change. В I'mВ goingВ toВ keepВ thingsВ likeВ this. ” InВ itsВ mind, В thereВ isВ noВ threat, В andВ itsВ authorityВ isВ unquestioned. В ButВ thereВ areВ alwaysВ elementsВ andВ forcesВ beyondВ one'sВ control, В toВ whichВ itВ mayВ seemВ itВ hasВ chosenВ toВ stayВ ignorantВ of. В В В

BodyВ 2: В PerfectionВ andВ PowerВ

TheВ firstВ stanzaВ showsВ theВ hawkВ toВ beВ aВ perfectionist, В thereВ isВ noВ marginВ forВ error, В notВ evenВ withinВ it'sВ sleep. В " OrВ inВ sleepВ rehearseВ perfectВ killsВ andВ eat. ” WhichВ bluntlyВ givesВ theВ depictionВ ofВ selfВ­obsessiveness. В TheВ secondВ stanzaВ howeverВ focusesВ moreВ onВ nature, В howВ theВ sun, В skyВ andВ theВ veryВ airВ boostsВ theВ hawks'В feelingВ ofВ power. В EvenВ thoughВ theseВ elementsВ ofВ natureВ areВ beyondВ man's'В control, В yetВ theyВ seemВ toВ workВ toВ theВ hawksВ advantage, В everВ heighteningВ itsВ superiority. В " AreВ ofВ advantageВ toВ meНѕВ AndВ theВ earth'sВ faceВ upwardsВ forВ myВ inspection. ”  В...
