english.poem, Miss Rosie
posted by y912f on .
the line "I stand up" in the poem "Miss Rosie" indicates that the speaker
a. is disgusted by Miss Rosie
b. feels responsible for Miss Rosie's destruction
c. respects what Miss Rosie has been through
d. thinks that she is better than Miss Rosie
i think it's D
because rosie is destroyed so now she feels better. 'i stand up through your destruction'
is this correct?
It could be -- but this site gives a different perspective.
What do you think?
I would be happier with D if it said "thinks she will not fall away into drugs and helplessness as miss rosie did"
so what do you guys think
now i'm thining on C too
We don't all interpret a poem the same way. Go with your own gut feeling.
still, do you have any opinions Ms.Sue?
No, I don't have an opinion. I could throw a dart at both answers, and see where the dart landed. But I don't know what the poet intended in those last three lines.
The important thing is that you've thought through this poem and tried to interpret it. Your actual answer really isn't very important.
