    • POEM: Ash Wednesday by Thomas Stearns Eliot (5/6/2007 10:07:00 PM)

      First of all, the poem is titled 'Ash Wednesday', in reference to the first day of the Lent period, a time for repentance. The whole poem imitates this idea in the sense that the speaker constantly confesses he is unworthy. His feeling of unworthiness is portrayed in his prayer for sinners at the hour of their death. Upon reading IV, I sensed Eliot spoke of the Garden of Eden with the fountains and springs and his conclusion that humans were 'exiled'. Yet in V, Eliot continues with talking about the Word and how sinners walk in darkness. Here the theme of 'free-will' comes in, for God gave us free will to love Him and others. But along with the freewill to love, we also have the freewill to reject him. This idea is accurately described in 'those who choses thee and oppose thee'.
