My fifth period was full of uncontrollable, inconsiderate twelve and thirteen years old who had no respect for anyone.

No other symbol fully encapsulates the fluidity and restlessness of the city, nor the pervasive intermixing of life and death that characterises Venice so fully. This is particularly true of Beppo, in which the gondola functions as a demonstration of the thin boundaries between the two seemingly antithetical states of life and death in Venice. The connection between the gondola and Venice is established in the opening paratext of the poem:…

    I could feel the crisp,cold air, blast against my face as I got my gloves on and grabbed my snowboard.”Let’s get going before it gets too windy!” yelled my dad. I could see my little sister clip her ski bindings on, ready to go on the gondola. As we were on the gondola, I could see the views of the mountain.
