    In the Poem “Red Wheelbarrow” by Red Wheelbarrow, my reaction to the phrase “everything depends” describes that the wheelbarrow has many usages. Without the wheelbarrow, a farmer may have a hard time getting some work completed. The poem was written in 1923, so a farmer was dependent on the wheelbarrow as a major piece of equipment, especially someone who was a harder laborer. One interesting part of the poem is where Williams split the words “a red wheel” separately and the single word “barrow”

    a garden to working in one’s yard, to feeding the animals around a farm, everything is made simpler using a red wheelbarrow. This I feel is what Williams’ meant when he stated, “so much depends upon a red wheel barrow” (Williams, 1923). He meant just that, that everything being done can be made easier depending on the use of a wheelbarrow. Red is a typical color of the old wheelbarrows I can remember using on the farm with my Papa; just as, my little red wagon was pulled behind me in helping. The

    In The Red Wheelbarrow, William Carlos Williams uses vivid imagery to paint a picture with his words. The first stanza endows the main object of the poem with great importance and duty. "So much" of what depends on it is left up to interpretation, making the reader ponder the responsibilities of the wheelbarrow itself. The second stanza adds vibrancy to the image with the word "red." The words "wheel" and "barrow" are separated to divide the tool into its simplest parts and make the reader think

    Red Wheelbarrow Meaning

    • 466 Words
    • 2 Pages

    poem “Red Wheelbarrow” by William Williams refers to a short recollection of certain descriptive terms that have some meaning. For instance, the author starts the poem with the phrase, “so much depends” (Kirszner & Mandell, 2012, p. 563). There must be some special emphasis about the red wheelbarrow that the speaker mentions. Perhaps, since this entire image may indicate that this poem relates to a farm setting, the wheelbarrow would be an indispensable piece of equipment. A wheelbarrow has many uses;

    In William Carlos William’s poem, “Red Wheelbarrow,” he describes a deceptively simple scene with just a few words in eight lines. The passing reader would perhaps look over the poem in just a couple of seconds and read it off as a frivolous or nonsensical poem that most likely has no explanation. Readers who actually look into the backstory, the form, and the meaning lying in the poem’s sixteen words, though, might discover something about the poet, and themselves also. Williams frequently used

    Carlos Williams’ 1923 poem, “Red Wheelbarrow”, the answers to the questions associated with the undescribed imagery are not important. Instead, simple imagery is utilized to describe a simplistic scene in which, “so much depends / upon”, leaving the reader to answer that question. (Williams, 1923, p. 563, lines 1-2). The “Red Wheelbarrow” therefore, is devoted to a single image, the image of a red wheelbarrow. Utilizing only sixteen words, the “Red Wheelbarrow” breaks the traditional boundaries
