  • No Love In This House Poem Analysis

    reality of a human fearing for his life in a most simple, yet effective, manner (14). “Two” - This poem has a depressing tone and hits the reader with a sense of reality.

They sacrifice themselves so that they can spread their genes-the genes their fathers and forefathers gave their lives for. Komunyakaa emphasizes this point by using a simile to compare a green rosebud and the praying mantis when he says, “his head is gnawed off / like a half-green / rosebud in the dirt” (12-14). A green rosebud is when a rose has not fully sprouted. By comparing the praying mantis to a green rosebud, Komunyakaa is saying that in order to ensure that he spreads his genes, he must lay his life on the line and die without accomplishing all that the male praying mantis may have wanted to do. The male praying mantis ends up dead like a rosebud in the dirt not able to fully sprout into the beautiful rose it is destined to be.

    this femme fatale fear due to the toys in the child’s hand “the hoop a female symbol, in the child’s left hand, and a very phallic-looking femur in his right” (Gilles Neret, 32).
