A Child's Amaze - Poem by Walt Whitman


SILENT and amazed, even when a little boy,
I remember I heard the preacher every Sunday put God in his
statements,
As contending against some being or influence.


Comments about A Child's Amaze by Walt Whitman

    What I'm puzzling through with A Child's Amaze is the final line: As contending against some being or influence. The way this line is written, I'm not sure if Walt Whitman meant that the preacher himself was contending with some being or influence by putting God into his statements or if the preacher was putting God into his statements to help his parish contend with some being or influence. Is Walt Whitman cynical in this poem or merely reporting an ordinary church experience? Is this poem a commentary? I'm not sure, based on the way the final line is composed. I don't like this poem as much as some of his other works. (Report) Reply

    Though short in lines the meaning is great and poem is also meaningful . (Report) Reply
