The Snow Man by Wallace Stevens. What is his point? What is our role when interpreting it? (Link) Setting / situation Winter time Lots of snow Still winter, but looks really bright Windy, blustery In a forest Focus / subject A mind of winter Cold hatred Thick skinned? Depressed / sad What does winter look like Beauty Evil Looks nice cold Sun can look nice snow Being warm and together ice fun Shoveling / work No responsibility Something to deal with It’s all about interpretation. Look at the two sides and interpret the negative Negative Dark Looking at it negatively “It had been cold a long time” This could be the persons general mind state, could be describing depression. Not friendly introvert It’s a permeant mental state Lonely, depressed There’s a sense of it being an outsider looking in. Docent understand why the person can’t get over it. It’s like a rainy day, you can’t go anywhere or do anything. It also makes you feel gloomy and tired. With this in mind it’s all about perspective. A lazy and sleepy day could be a good or bad thing. Our perception affects how we see things. “And, nothing himself, beholds. Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.” He is there but not. He sees what he wants to see He seems to infer that we see what we want to say. If you see bad around you you’re going to see the bad in the world. If you see the good you’ll only see the good.
