  • Title
  • Paraphrase
  • Connotation
  • Based on the title, "The Roaring 20's", I believe the poem will discuss the Roaring 20's, and maybe some historical insight into that time period.
  • Attitude
  • The poem describes the Roaring 20's in a nutshell, repeating "bootleggers fought" and "booze was served hot". The poem tells of women's freedoms, speakeasies, the Charleston, and the Stock Market Crash.
  • Shifts
  • Not much figurative language is present in this poem, but there are some examples. "When Wall Street collapses and drowns out the roar" doesn't talk about an actual roar, but rather the boom of innovation in the 20's.
  • Title/Theme
  • The poem is not a very deep one, and it's meaning and purpose is literal. The poet describes the ups and downs of the 1920's along with new trends and historical events. The poem is slightly light-hearted and isn't as in-depth as poems can be.
  • The poem is told much like a story would be told. The poem first talks about the 20's in general, then moves on to new trends that sprouted from the WW1 Era, such as flappers. More trends, like speakeasies and the Charleston, before the Stock Market crash. The direction of the poem goes downwards from beginning to end.
  • The title, after reading the poem, is pretty self explanatory. Towards the end of the poem, when "panic begins while prosperity ends", but still flappers are dancing and bootleggers fighting. Maybe this poem could be talking of the American spirit, and how even through a Depression, the American dream is still as bright as ever.
