In the poem "Home Burial", who do you think was in the right, the husband Amy?


I believe Amy was in the right because, he shouldnn't have walked in the house talking about the fence, after leaving his son's grave. A fence would have been the last thing on my mind if I was in his shoes.

What do you think??

    i AGREE, seems like he would be talking or thinking about his dead son, that's what i would do, Maybe the author intended for Amy to talk about the fence instead to show his cold personality.

    I believe Amy was in the right because, he shouldnn't have walked in the house talking about the fence, after leaving his son's grave. <~~Check spelling and punctuation (including where you DON'T need punctuation).

    A fence would have been the last thing on my mind if I was in his shoes. <~~Check verb usage; also, if you have never buried anyone, how do you know what you would have been thinking in a situation like this? I'd write a better second sentence.
