Sample text

What this thing is trying to be; I’ve never seen anything hang together like this; It’s just too makeshift to succeed; and, What are you trying to prove, anyway? In short, museum-boredom (“Big deal; take me somewhere else”), which the poet meets at first with a curatorial delicacy. ” (. ) Earlier in the poem, still explaining the look of the monument itself, Bishop had composed a diagram of the viewer’s relation to what he sees, which may also be read as a geometric proof of her own power over her readers.

Paradoxically, the connection that promised to draw the speaker and the reader out of themselves, perhaps to their own annihilation, actually forces both speaker and reader back into themselves and connects them to their own imaginations. This connection is not only paradoxical but frighteningly ambiguous. “At the Fishhouses” suggests that knowledge and connection may actually be mutually exclusive, that we cannot know what we experience because of our subjective walls, because of our flawed human senses, our tendency to imagine our own bodies everywhere.

Peter’s denial of Christ at the cock’s crowing is sculpted in stone as a tangible reminder of his weakness and his master’s love. ” If you look hard enough, in other words, the fighting cock of the first part of the poem can be seen anew. ” Spurs encrusted with tears mark the transformation of militancy into humility. (. ) Bishop returns to her opening picture of daybreak, and the difference in her imagery alerts us to the distance between braggadocio and the roosters’ subsequent Christian meekness.
