...Housman & Irwin Reading and understanding poem entailone to employ a similar perspective to that of the poet. However, in this Housman & Irwin‘s poem regardless of how I reread the poem continued to be incomprehensible. This is because of the author’s elaboration of “immortality” in the poem besides the judgment, which he makes while comparing it with other life’s aspects. Hence, complicating the entire work besides contrasting with what humanity obviously deem to be immortal (Housman & Irwin 59). The poet utilizes dialogue to engage the reader who is his audience to argue about “immortality” though from an ironical perspective... Key Words; Immortality, Aspects, Poem, The Immortal Part By A.

Most of the people believe Housman is not a sharp poet like Shakespeare although he produces one of the most criticized poem in the 20th century. This is stupid stuff is one of his lengthy poems but also entertaining. The contents of the poem are amazing while the title itself is also challenging. In this poem, Housman has used themes of self-affection and external nature to drive home his point. These two themes also make the poem so popular. Housman uses words which in real sense are not true to make you happy. This is also the reason why this poem is so attractive. For example, Them...

...Housman's "To An Athlete Dying Young" A.E Housman's elegy addressed to an athlete dying young celebrates the athlete's meteoric career and the fact his brief life helped to ensure at least that he did not wear out his "honours" (162). Robert Frost's short poem could, perhaps, also be considered elegiac in a sense, highlighting as it does the brief life of the choices open to humankind. In fact, there is an obvious element of regret in Frost's poem too, especially in his "sigh" (236) in the last stanza. The first stanza of "To An Athlete Dying Young" recalls the athlete's most triumphant moment-"the time you won your town the race...
