La Lodge and Entr'acte

Extracts from this document...


La lodge and Entr'acte I think that the poem entr'acte describes the painting very well. It brings across the feelings of the two people in it in a very good and sensitive way. Firstly the title of the poem -'entr'acte' makes the poem sound elegant and impressive, or even sophisticated. The title means in between acts which describes the painting very well because she is just sitting there and he has his eyes on things completely away from the stage.

He has dressed her and himself up in very exquisite and elegant clothes just for the show and to make him look wealthy.
