    • POEM: Autumn by Thomas Ernest Hulme (11/28/2011 1:39:00 PM)

      'Autumn' is considered as an imagist poem because it portrays a picture that triggers readers' imagination to interpret the poem differently. The title shows the season (which is autumn) because the season helps the readers in forming a complete image. The speaker uses the past tense to describe his walking in a cold autumn night. However, nouns in the poem are more important than verbs, because the visual images are more important than the actions. His similes are simple and rural' he first compares the moon to a farmer. He sees the moan reddish and close to the ground, just like a tired farmer leaning on a hedge after a hard work. The view is worth stopping; thus, the speaker stops, but he doesn't speak, he meditates instead. He nodded because the stars look sad and gloomy. Their white color makes them look pales and sick, just like the town children (another simile) . The whole poem conveys a full image of what the speaker has seen. The reader can imagine the view perfectly as if they can see the scene.
