Post #4: Story or Poem Analysis

https://www.wordswithoutborders.org/article/november-2020-climate-elephant-yu-jian-xin-xu

The poem is about an elephant traveling across Laos. The poem describes how the elephant looks and moves. It mentions the symbolism behind the elephant. There was a lot of good imagery in this poem. The author used words like “imitating” “dawdling” and “rising” to describe the elephant’s mannerisms and behavior.

I noticed that the author used a different line for every description they gave. I think this way of writing helps emphasize the importance of what they’re trying to describe. I think the main idea of this text was to show the importance and symbolism of the elephant.
