  • The Prisoners Of War Analysis

    "The Prisoners of War,” a relatively short poem by Tom Disch, written in 1972, is riddled with imagery and deeper meaning. Even in the opening line, Disch cuts to the point. “Their language disappeared a year or so after the landscape: so what can they do now but point?” (line 1-3). Here it does not take much to get an interpretation. He is saying that our society has lost something. We have lost our “language,” meaning our ability to have intimate face-to- face conversations. That…
