Grim Mood in William Carlos Williams’ “Spring and All”
I picked this poem because recently, as I was getting ready for my day, I looked out the window and it was raining. The rain made me feel very sad, and I didn’t feel like doing anything but stay inside. I remembered the poem I read by William Carlos Williams, and thought that my energy was just like the emotion reflected in the last lines of the poem. I did not remember the exact line, but I did recall the emotion I felt when I read the final lines, and realized that as depressed as I was, a part of me was ready to “grip down and begin to awaken” (Williams 27).

The theme of the poem is oppression; the oppression of the Native American in search of truth in a world which is a lie. They have been lied to for so long, and unlike other racial groups, who have ascended to economic and political heights, Native Americans are almost trapped into desperate lifestyles, because they cannot fit in a world who has cast them aside. The oppression however is not a solitary consideration, as the attempt to emerge from the oppression by the Native American has a hope that has been pressed down, but can never be destroyed.
