    • POEM: Not Waving But Drowning by Stevie Smith (10/11/2007 12:28:00 PM)

      The poem is clearly about not only the people's misinterpretation but also their detachment, hence they fail to understand that it was 'too cold always'. If it is about detachment then it is also about being absorbed in one's own personal life and strife and dismissive of other's. Is it not ironic then, that Stevie Smith is imposing her own despair at being ignored, due to the self-absorption of others, on another's despair? ie, is depression the epitome of self-absorption and detachment from others. Or perhaps the drowning man is a direct symbol of her depression rather-which would mean the 1st person is the dead man, which is how most interpret it. Perhaps not though.
