Conundrum of Choice
[ send me this essay ]
(5 pp.) Conundrum is a fifty-cent word, which means "riddle." That is often what a choice is. It involves information, intuition and risk; sometimes it appears that spitting into the wind has as much possibility as the productivity of choice. But, who knows, maybe the wind will suddenly change. In examining the idea of change, one way to look at it is through poetry. The ideas of poetry move more fluidly, and are more open to introspection than prose. Poets and poems considered in this discussion will be " Lucille Clifton - "the Lost Baby Poem;" Robert Frost - "Stopping by a Snowy Wood;" and W.H. Auden - "The Unknown Citizen."
