Everyone has their own appreciation of a poem various from time to time and from place to place However their appreciation would be increasingly better when they find themselves similar in some respects to the I-speaker The poem is considered as good one if the readers can recognized the true value of its theme as well as its figurative language through it the writers message is carried Fortunately When I was one-and-twenty of AE Housman is constituted by such factors It is hard for any reader to catch the writers purpose and them if they read it once or twice I cannot agree more that the more we read this poem the more interest it brings to us At the first time reading When I was one-and-twenty left us no special impression but the burning curiosity for its repeated title Such very good burning curiosity inspired us to read it more carefully and patiently Finally we happily enjoyed the poems theme and meaning as well as the poets talented skills of using internal figurative language and musical devices What a wonderful chance to be assigned this poem Coincidentally most of us are twenty-one years old Thats why we are very interested in reading and commenting this poem Perhaps some one may not perceive its value if they are not experienced the age of twenty-one and twenty-two So its our privilege the state of being one-and-twenty now This poem simply consists of the wise mans advice and the I-speaker internal conflict to such advice The repeated title opens the 1st stanza attractively Seemingly we consider ourselves as the I-speaker because we are now one-and-twenty Its very interesting to find the similarity between the writer and the readers Really do we want to know what happens to the I-speaker when he was one-and-twenty Nothing unexpecting happens like the wise mans advice It is rather a surprise to us when Housman uses the images of money crowns pounds
