      Essay on sympathy by Paul Laurence Dunvar.

    The poem sympathy  by paul Laurence Dunvar is about oppression and freedom. in this poem, the author paul developes an atmosphere of several feelings.

    With little effort, sympathy involves different situations that has relationship with today'sworld in many cities, since they are many kind of oppression, as poorer a country be, more oppression is apply.

   As the readers get closer with the goal of the author, oneself is able to perceivee that the poem reach a big relationship with the lifestyle of the poorest classes of our society.

   In dominican Republic, at one time, we live some period where we suffer all type of oppression. Remembering our past, is easy to point some oppression event such the dictatorship government of Ulisses Eureau and Rafael Leonidas Trujillo such as religious; the people have to belong to the catholic religion, but to their manner, for example, when Trujillo run the presidency, he made the citizen bless his name before  god name. Also discrimination is noticeable, since many tan skin young, attempt to be boyfriend of his daughter and he object. And socio economic oppression,in which the people have to give Trujillo what he wants of their belongings without be questioned if they want cooperate.

   We can point stages where they are connection between sympathy and the present society,one of then is when it says that [ the bird beats his wings till its blood is red on the cruel bars]. reflect many person when protest and hurt themselves demanding some needs. And in other hand also when it says [ that the song of the bird is not a carol one]. Thus, is a bitter way to ask for something. Like when strikers feel powerless and start to cry openly and drown in the desperation.

   The message I can perceive from this poem is that the individual have to strive hardly in order to overcome the difficulties.

   I agree with the author of this work, because the poem contain a lot of fact that reflect the lifestyle of forgotten poorer of the social class.
