Dunbar's 'Wear The Mask'

Satisfactory Essays
When the speaker recommends wearing the ‘mask’, I think he seems genuine. I say this because in the final line he says,”But let the world dream otherwise,/We wear the mask!” In saying this, he seems generally supportive of the wearing of the ‘mask’, and using it to hide the true person beneath. Also, seeing that he is so eager to recommend the ‘mask’, it seems as if he wears it too. And with his wearing of it, he obviously would want others to wear and ‘try it out’, per se. All in all, it seems to me that Dunbar is very genuine when he recommends wearing the ‘mask’.
