Analytical paragraph eavan boland

  1. 1. Analytical Paragraph: Theme of ‘This Moment’ by Eavan Boland Analysis by: Patrick McEnroe 9-BWhile the poem captures a moment in time, the underlingtheme of ‘This Moment’ by Eavan Boalnd is ‘Life keepsmoving on’. For example, in the poem, when the ‘womanleans down to catch (the)… child’ to put him/her to bed themoths are only starting to flutter. This supports the theme‘Life keeps moving on’ as it is highlighting that when peopleare getting ready to sleep at night life does not stop. Otherspecies are only coming to life. Another example of thetheme is seen in two of the lines in the last stanza, ‘Applessweeten in the dark’ and ‘Stars rise”. The sentence ‘Applessweeten in the dark’ demonstrates that some items arecontinually active. Even at night, though the human eye maynot see it, some things carry on and never stop moving.Similarly one only sees ‘stars rise’ at night even though theyare moving during the day as well. In conclusion, this smallpoem effectively captures the theme, ‘Life keeps moving on’.
