Prayer of a Black Boy Essay

In the poem The prayer of a Black male child the generator wrote the poem in the point of view of a child want black boy which is the speaker of the poem. who was a slave at this time.The poet tells us that the black boy doesnt want to go to a sinlessness people school because he they are principle him a new(a) tillage that he doesnt like it he finds it boring because is a new culture and they do things that he doesnt do at home, he also says that he doesnt want to be a gentleman of the city because they have a sad life.The poet wrote this poem like a narrative story and he makes the poem very descriptive and he also makes his point across by using alliteration which will create a specific sounds or meets stand out, he also uses illustration to make pick ups of what the slaves went throw.The generator constitutes us how desperate the and unkept and tired the black people was. The writer uses metaphors for example when he reflects in the first line of the poem the word ti red This is a metaphor often used by elderly people when they have lived by dint of many events. They are not physically tired but psychologically exhausted. This suggests that the young boy has witnessed many atrocities and culture changes inflicted on his race by the white culture.The poet also gives us to understand that for a black person to go to school was very difficult because of the way he was inviten and abuse and humiliated because of this. he pleads to god for not going to school Lord, I beginnert want to go to their school please benefactor me that I need to go again the boy says it was to difficult because the highway to school is steep By this he means that the school isnt actually on top of a hill, but it is a mental ascent to have the courage to accept another culture teaching him western traits, most of which arent relative to the life he wants to farewell and that he thought that he was going to loose he culture and way of learning which was by tradition al bounds and by story grave under the light of the moon who do not know how to dance by the light of the moon.The poet gives us to understand that the boy prefers to tamp on with his own tradition I want to follow breed into the cool gorges because he finds his culture more interesting we can see this when he writes a personification when the shadow is hovering over magic afforest he uses a personification in here to create an image of the night floating over the trees which is obviously not true because the night is a natural thing which is everywhere, he also shows emancipation and gratification of his ants esters by writing Where spirits play before the dawn. He shows freedom of how the spirits play o the night.By the writer using alliterations he makes an image of a ship throwing out like animals its crew a ship on the sugarfields,Land and spits its crew he also gives an image of black workers useless after they have finished their shiftThe writer writes again Lord, I do not want to go to their school, amuse help me that I need no to go again, the writer repeats this phrase again to show how desperate and unhappy the boy is and to show that the boy doesnt want to be the gentleman of the city or as the whites call it a real gentleman ,in here the writer gives us to understand that the boy doesnt want learn the by the way that the whites learn by using books of other countries and learning things that they dont now or seen before, we see this when he say why should we learn again from poreing
