While working on this assignment I found it very difficult to interpret the poem as a whole The poem in its entirety is very complex However as I focused my attention on the individual versus rather than the whole I was able to get a much clearer understanding of the words There was a particular section that I enjoyed it was in the first poem titled The Bridge Some pages of figures to be filed away -Till elevators drop us from our day I think of cinemas panoramic sleights With multitudes bent toward some flashing scene Never disclosed but hastened to again Foretold to other eyes on the same screen To me the lines above represent the life of an average New York businessman In the first line he is working to get his papers filed away The elevator in the second line represents the closure of his workday drops us from our day When the elevator door opens in the lobby he is free from work and is able to go enjoy the rest of his evening In the following lines it is apparent that he decided to go to a movie As he sits and watches the images on the screen he realizes that there are also many other people there watching with him and he wonders how they feel about the movie Although they are all watching the same movie he thinks that they could each have a different view of what it means I thought this was interesting because it is similar to poetry where everyone reads the same words but can develop several different interpretations
