Download file to see previous pages Various poems have been written by different poets,in which the affection of a father or a bond between father and a son, or between any other family members has been depicted. However, ‘Those Winters Sundays’, Bilingual/Bilingueand ‘My Papa’s Waltz’ are three of the poems that particularly depict the relation between father and children. However, these three poems aren’t too simple for every reader to understand in the first glance. This paper will discuss and explain these poems in this paper so that all the readers can understand the meanings that are either hidden in the context of the poems or they aren’t as discernible as they could have been. Before each poem is explained, compared and contrasted with each other, a brief introduction of each poet will be provided in the paper. The background of each poet as well as their writing style will also be discussed along with their introduction. Rhina P. Espalliat and her background Rhina P. Espaillat was basically from the Dominican Republic that was under the Trujillo regime. Espaillat, however, moved to New York in her adulthood and here she started writing poetry. She wrote poems in English and Spanish and gained fame in both languages. Her poem Bilingual/Bilingue is one of the best works of her career. It is important to mention Rhina P. Espaillat, and particularly her poem Bilingual/Bilingue in this research paper because the obscurity of her work is similar to the other two poets we discussed above. However, this is not the only reason why we are discussing her. We are also discussing this great poetess because her poem Bilingual/Bilingue has a strong connection to the poems ‘My Papa’s Waltz’ and ‘Those Winter Sundays’, respectively by Roethke and Hayden. Robert Hayden, his background and writing style While talking about Robert Hayden, we have to remind ourselves that he was one of the poets who were known for their complex lyrics that were hard for everyone to understand. As stated by Hartmann and Wigdor; “Thirty feet of correspondence, notebooks, journals, and drafts of his literary work will give cultural historians a context for understanding the haunting lyricism of Robert Hayden” (Hartman et al. 170). As Wood mentions, Hayden wasn’t a very fortunate kid. He had to face a lot of difficulties as a child as his parents got separated soon after his birth. When he was only 18 months old, he was given to his next door neighbors so that they can take care of him. His neighbors gave him a new name but he was never lawfully adopted. However, Hayden loved his foster father to whom he dedicated ‘Those Winter Sundays’.(“screen”) Since Hayden was a black man, he had faced situations that he didn’t like throughout his life. He continued to use his experiences as well as observations to come up with poems like ‘Night, Death, Mississippi’ and ‘middle passage’. Through these two poems Hayden depicted the element of violence that was towards a certain group of people in particular. “…that there was hardly room 'tween-decks for half the sweltering cattle stowed spoon-fashion there; that some went ...Download file to see next pagesRead More
