    • POEM: The Horses by Edwin Muir (11/19/2007 5:48:00 PM)

      I feel that this poem symbolizes how humanity progresses. Like the novel 1984, I think this poem can be seen as a warning to the past, present, and future. As we grow more reliant on technology, we start to care less about how things were done before technology existed and gradually forget altogether. While I was reading, I could picture the images Edwin Muir was describing and understand what feelings he was conveying throughout the poem. People usually only start to act after something tragic happens to them or when it's almost too late. In the poem, the people experienced the loss of their friends and family, and the destruction of the world as they knew it. It was only then that they realized how much they regretted trading their horses for tractors and believing that technology would make their lives easier. The horses symbolized a new beginning to the people who wanted nothing to do with technology anymore.
