Question and answer
Q: Two years, ten years, and passengers ask the conductor: What place is this? Where are we now?" "Grass," Carl Sandburg, 1918. Why does
Sandburg include the passengers and conductor in his poem? A. to illustrate how people will continue to come to this area B. to illustrate how quickly people forget the price of war C. to illustrate how scenic the place will eventually become D. to illustrate how nature prevails over human affairs
A: Nature?specifically grass?narrates the poem in first-person point of view. The words and repeated phrases suggest a sarcastic tone. [ Nature seems frustrated that humankind cannot learn from its mistakes and instead allows the grass simply to cover them up. People pay so little heed to their tragic errors of the past that they do not even recognize a battlefield site when they see it. ("What
place is this? Where are we now?") Another interpretation suggests that the tone is objective and impassive: Grass has a job to do, and as surely as rivers flow and thunder rumbles, it does what it has to do. ]
