Rudyard Kipling's If

Rudyard Kipling's If




Rudyard Kipling's If


1.What does this poem remind you of in your life? 

The poem, If reminds me of when I was a small boy how it was difficult to start to grow up. It makes me remember what a change it was to do things on my own, and it took me a very long time to be independent and start to mature. It also makes me think about how much farther I have to develop in order to completely grow up. 
This poem reminds me of when i was younger in life and everything was still new to me. It reminds me of learning new things and experiencing things for the first time. It brings back memories and yet makes me wonder what the future holds.

2.What feelings does the poem awaken in you? How do your feelings connect with those of the poet?

This poem awakens a variety of feelings within me such as inspiration and the feeling of happiness. It also made a deep connection with me because some of the situations it describes or talks about are experiences of mine also. I think some of the feelings I was feeling were also the feelings of the poet, they even connect to those of the poet because they are the same or close.  My feelings of what you must know and be able to do to be a grownup connect to his and we share the same ideals and principles. This connects us in some inexplicable way that makes is seem as though there are too few words in the English language to describe such a link.


3.What is the poem about? Consider speaker, symbols, comparisons, contrasts and conflicts.

The poem is about growing up. It talks about how the poet can tell his son to grow up. He also explains what a real man is. If you can do this with that happening is what most of the lines are like. The conflict is a boy that cannot grow up and is going through many difficulties. He does not know how feel, act, or be.

This poem is about becoming mature and becoming and adult. The writer is putting his own experiences into this and tells about the high and low ends and the conflicts you will face, like not giving in even though everyone else has. It compares and contrasts the right and wrong decisions that one person can make in their journey to adulthood.


4.What are the poetic form, figurative language and poetic structure? 

It has some rhyming. But not in every line. Between lines it describes how to become a man. It also has much figurative language and can be clear as water. Also the poetic structure is a stanza piece. It has four stanzas and each one rhymes. Each stanza has a little repetition. This keeps the reader engaged and reading.

This connects us in some inexplicable way that makes is seem as though there are too few words in the English language to describe such a link. Amongst the most famous poems written in the English language is Rudyard Kipling's ever popular piece "if." It seems to have entered into the public's general consciousness in ways that other poems have not come close to. The timeless appeal of the passing down of knowledge and wisdom from father to son is immediately recognized and appreciated by an audience all too familiar with the joys and pitfalls of parenthood. The poem is touching in its sincerity and is full of humility and warmth which has been appreciated by millions since it was first written in 1895.
