O Captain! My Captain!


Appreciation of poem O captain my captain



1) The title of the poem is “O Captain! My Captain!”.

2) The poet’s name is Walt Whitman.

3) The rhyme scheme is: aabbcded

4) Favourite Lines:
Here Captain! dear father!
 This arm beneath your head;
 It is some dream that on the deck,
 You’ve fallen cold and dead..”

5) Theme/Central Idea:
The central thought of the poem is the poet grieving the loss of his incredible leader. There is blended feelings in the sonnet as there is festivities for triumph in fight yet in addition bitterness for the passing of their leader and captain. This sonnet is said to allude to the passing of President Abraham Lincoln after the American Civil War.



6) Figures of Speech: Alliteration, Antithesis, Apostrophe, Hyperbole, Inversion, Metaphor, Repetition.

7) Special features: This poem is an emotional poem where the poet is addressing his great leader and captain President Abraham Lincoln. The Metaphor is used to show the relation between the American Civil War, the contribution of its leader and the mixed feelings after his death. The poem has 8 lines in every of its stanzas and the seventh line the rhyme is broken.


8) I like this poem as it is so emotional and it shows the love and respect of the poet towards his great leader.


O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:
But O heart! heart! heart!
 O the bleeding drops of red,
 Where on the deck my Captain lies,
 Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up-for you the flag is flung-for you the bugle trills;
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths-for you the shores
a-crowding;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
 This arm beneath your head;
 It is some dream that on the deck,
 You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;
Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
 But I, with mournful tread,
 Walk the deck my Captain lies,
 Fallen cold and dead.

                                           - Walt Whitman
