Dreams By: Langston Hughes

By Clayton Curtis :

Tittle:

I think this poem will be about a kid doing his dreams in the future.

Paraphrase:

Let dreams last,because your life will be a frozen barrier and a bird that cannot fly

Connotation:

Life is a broken-winged bird:I think this means that when you don't have dreams you don't have a purpose in life.



Life is a frozen barrier:I think that this means when you don't have dreams your life stopped.

Attitude:

I think that the speaker is peaceful and depressed,because of the things she speaks of in her poem like the broken-winged bird and frozen barrier.Also the way she spoke in the poem.

Shift:

I feel like there is no shift in this poem because it just seems sad the whole poem is depressing.

Title:

Now the tittle seems like dreams are great thing to have and the poem is talking why and how they are a great thing to have.

Theme:

I think the total theme of the poem is that when you don't have a dream your life stops,because there is no reason to work for a goal.
