Which best describes the speaker of “Rhapsody on a Windy Night”? the moon watching from above a street lamp that can talk the woman observing from a doorway a person wandering in the street
THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER 👇
The “Rhapsody on a Windy Night” Speaker best describes the following options:
D. a person wandering the street.
As a speaker in the poem “Rhapsody on a Windy Night” by TS Eliot one is wandering the streets. The first verse reveals this wound:
Along reaches the street
Every street lamp rhythm
Beats like a deadly drum,
And through the spaces of darkness
Midnight shakes the memory
As madman crosses a dead geranium.
The speaker roams between midnight and four in the morning, and from the second verse onwards begins to tell readers what the street lamp told him. The world that the street lamp describes is a reckless world – at least that’s what the speaker believes. It is the depressing world in which we live, the meaningless contemporary life we all face. The talking street lamp seems to be a reflection of the speaker’s mind, his wild imagination that has grown tired of life.
