A Comparison between 2 poems "Lore" written by R.S Thomas and "Woman Work" by Maya Angelou
In this assignment I will be studying in detail the 2 poems "Lore" written by R.S Thomas, and "Woman Work" by Maya Angelou.
Maya Angelou is a remarkable woman who is well known as one of the greatest voices of contemporary literature. She is an eminent poet, educator, historian, best selling author, actress, and civil rights. The list goes on endlessly.
Although not as proficient as Angelou, the welsh poet R.S Thomas is still famous for his 20 volumes of poetry, a career that has expanded for 50 years. He spent his life working as a clergyman in rural Wales. One of his poems was even quoted on the pop phenomenon "Manic Street Preachers" album.
The title of the poem "Lore" suggests that this poem is about traditional culture. Verse 1 describes Job Davies life, despite all the hard work; he is still cheerful this is because he is an optimistic and independent being who follows his traditional cultural ways of life. For example instead of using modern technology to meow the lawn he uses the "scythe".
