Question

Which of the following is a metaphor for the journey in the poem?

self-reliance
houses
voices
shouting

2 Answer

  • The answer would be self-reliance.
    From the start of the poem the speaker iproposes us to the sudden realization that we can listen to our own self-conscious and still excel through life. 
    This is found through the lines:One day you finally knew
    what you had to do, and began,
    though the voices around you
    kept shouting
    their bad advice –
    though the whole house
    began to tremble
    and you felt the old tug
    at your ankles.

    In this case, the speaker of the poem leaves us with the  task to find our own voice, in a world where society as if to speak for everyone.
