Mark Crawford's Poem 'Broken Window'

Satisfactory Essays
I do not know who Mark Crawford is or if he has anything to do with this short poem. That being said, I will make him apart of my argument. Behind this poem is social ideology. If Mark is the boy in the story then the image of a broken window means much more to him than it does to us. It is “a cry of art…success” (). If he is trapped behind a window with no means of breaking out then he was put in that situation revealing that he is belittled or has no say. This gives me the impression that the broken window not only signifies shattered glass but a chance of freedom or liberty. On the fifth and sixth line of the first stanza it shows a contrast in metaphors describing the broken window. It can signify how the “superiors” feel towards the window
