Short Summary on “A Happy Man” by Edwin Arlington Robinson

January 4, 2019 admin 0 Comment

Now that we understand that he is dead he assures that there is simply no reason to mourn over his death because he has lived a life full of satisfaction and no desire was left to be fulfilled. He says “Now and with no need of tears, Here they leave me full of years” where he assures that there is no need to mourn over his death. This is a happy poem explaining that a man can stay happy in his lifetime if his old age passes happily. A man with good children is a blessed individual and the dead man is lucky to be one of those lucky individuals. What we as readers learn from this poem is that any individual’s life is successful if he has had a proper old age and if he is treated well by his children.
