    • POEM: The Explosion by Philip Larkin (11/7/2007 9:22:00 PM)

      A compelling poem, however i must disagree with the previous statement. This poem shows a great amount of what can almost be seen as disgust by Larkin at the amount of heed paid to the lives of these men. Yes, he does imply that they should be remember but he states clearly that we are seen as merely a second in time to the vast expanse of nature when he states 'At noon there came a tremor; cows / Stopped chewing for a second'. Larkin is commenting on the harmony which we, as humans, believe we have with nature when in fact we disturb the silence along with the natural order by removing things such as nests. I could expand this more with the time and speak about the significance placed on religion, but this statement gives an overall view of my opinion. Feel free to disagree
