  1. 1. "FOG" By: Carl Sandburg The world was changing so quickly that this poem was representing the use of Imagery in the Fog and Cat. The Fog and Cat are one in the same as they quietly sneak up on you before you know it and disappear just as quickly and silently. The times of this period were also changing. People were losing their jobs. The American way of living was changing and war was breaking out. This poem represents the problems people faced during the early 20th century. Although stressful, it to shall pass as silently as the Fog and Cat.
  2. 2. “FOG” By: Carl Sandburg The fog comes on little cat feet It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on
  3. 3. This poem represents the popular imagist movement happening during the early 20th century. The poet wanted to showcase the red wheelbarrow as the American Dream. People of the early 20th century worked extremely hard to make ends meet. The wheelbarrow represented an important role in farming. Farmers depended upon their equipment to work so they can support their families. Rain water and chickens represent the hours of hard labor people went through to earn a living because they woke up at the crack of dawn to make sure their families were taken care of. “The Red Wheelbarrow” By: William Carlos Williams
