The interrogation

  1. 1. “The Interrogation” By Edwin Muir an analysis (on page 32) By Jodie James and Brandon Basinski
  2. 2. The poem We could have crossed the road but hesitated, And then came the patrol; The leader conscientious and intent, The men surly, indifferent. While we stood by and waited The interrogation began. He says the whole Must come out now, who, what we are, Where we have come from, with what purpose, whose Country or camp we plot for or betray. Question on question. We have stood and answered through the standing day And watched across the road beyond the hedge The careless lovers in pairs go by, Hand linked in Hand wandering another star, So near we could shout to them. We cannot choose Answer or action here, Though still the careless lovers saunter by And the thoughtless field is near. We are on the very edge, Endurance almost done, And still the interrogation is going on.
