NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS
New Year Resolution is an artistic, attractive and effective poem by Elizabeth Sewel. The poetess has expressed her thought very masterfully. The poem shows that the poetess has very realistic approach to life and its complexities. The poem propagates truth and advocates practical aspects of life.
Truth is bitter and reality is uncomfortable. It needs great courage to face reality. There may be only a few brave people who can face reality with a smiling face. But the poetess has made her mind to take rest in the naked bony arms of reality at night. To sleep at night in the bony arms of reality is not easy. Thus the bony arms of reality are the symbol of the bitterness of truth.
New Year is traditionally the time of making merry and drinking wine, the poetess drains long draughts of quiet. But her act of drinking as different in nature from that of other people. Thus the metaphor used by the poetess is affecting and suitable. The central idea of the poem is self-realisation, what we actually are. The poetess would not try to shut her eye on her own weakness.
