Homework Help: English-poetry

Posted by Jonathan on Monday, September 24, 2012 at 5:45pm.

I am doing a poetry analysis of John Clare's "IAm!" I need help identifying the emotional/logical climax and the fulcrum of the piece. I have identified its metaphors, similes, imagery, censuara, allusions, repetition. Am I missing something? Here is the poem:

I am—yet what I am none cares or knows;
My friends forsake me like a memory lost:
I am the self-consumer of my woes—
They rise and vanish in oblivious host,
Like shadows in love’s frenzied stifled throes
And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed

Into the nothingness of scorn and noise,
Into the living sea of waking dreams,
Where there is neither sense of life or joys,
But the vast shipwreck of my life’s esteems;
Even the dearest that I loved the best
Are strange—nay, rather, stranger than the rest.

I long for scenes where man hath never trod
A place where woman never smiled or wept
There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass below—above the vaulted sky.
