Can i please get the analysis of the poem "Horses" by Edwin Muir? This should not, however, be confused with another of his poems "The Horses". Thank you.

    "get the analysis"? What does that mean? You are supposed to write an analysis, but you want to find one online and copy/paste? Or what?

    Here are some excellent webpages that will teach you how to do your own analysis. Follow the steps carefully, and the post what you come up with. Someone here will be happy to critique your work.

    I'm sort of a newbie at poetry analysis and i need guidance on this particular poem because I can't find it anywhere on the internet. Will check out these links though, but please help.

    The first of the two links is the clearest to follow, but there are ideas in the second link that you should think about, too.

    Post what you come up with, and we'll be able to help.

    I've understood from that the first two stanzas of the poem talk about the writer's childhood memories of the plough horses on his father's farm and how, being a young boy of maybe four or five years old, saw them as giant and mysterious creatures and feared them greatly. He also compared the movements of the horses' hooves to the up and down movements of pistons in an ancient mill, relating them to child labor in those industrial times. I don't really understand the following lines, but get that the fifth stanza contain words that have to do with fire - "warm and glowing with mysterious fire that lit..." and add to the danger and mystery he saw in the horses at that tender age. Apart from this i don't understand the poem. My assignment in school dwells on mainly the language of the poem.
