Page history last edited by mad nenird 4 years, 10 months ago November Cotton Flower Boll-weevil's coming, and the winters cold, Made cotton-stalks look rust, seasons, old, And cotton scarce as any southern snow, Was vanishing; the branch, so pinched and slow, Failed in its function as the autumn rake; Drouth fighting soil had caused the soil to take All water from the steams; dead birds were found In wells a hundred feet below the ground-- Such was the season when the flower bloomed.
Old folks were startledand it soon assumed Significance. Superstition Saw Something it had never been seen before: Jean Toomer describes how the changes in the land effect every aspect in a different way. And that maybe even though the changes are coming with losses, there will be change for the better to come.
The cotton has failed due to a drouth and the lack of water has dried out all of the streams. When the flower then bloomed many were surprised because after the months of death, they saw a new beauty they had long since forgotten.
Toomer uses many literary devices such as simile, when he describe the cotton as "scarce as any southern snow," this lets you know that its almost nonexistent.
The comparison helps you to visualize what is actually happening during this time block. The drouth brought on, is a major one, such that it killed. There is the seemingly unfitting line of death, "dead birds were found In wells a hundred feet below the ground," the rest of the poem is talking about how the landscape changes in the fall.
Without this line there wouldn't be as much appreciation, in the end of the poem, for the blossoming of the new cotton. Jean Toomer is teaching a very important lesson in this poem. Even through the harsh changes of the new season, there will be good to come.
That even though everything seems as its over, its truly just begun, and the beginning will be greater than any mind could ever imagine. It was forgotten that there could be greatness after the devastation of the past tragedies but with these new beautiful brown eyes full of love a new batch of cotton will grow and the new year will continue on better than the last.May 15, · A series of short narratives with poetic interludes, Cane is one of the earliest texts of the Harlem Renaissance.

Jan 24, · "Georgia Dusk" by Jean Toomer Jean Toomer’s poem “Georgia Dusk” is about an idealized black southern town.
One can only assume that the town is . Black reapers with the sound of steel on stones Are sharpening scythes. I see them place the hones In their hip-pockets as a thing that's done, And start their silent swinging, one by one.
Black horses drive a mower through the weeds, And there, a field rat, startled, squealing bleeds, His belly close to ground. I see the blade, Blood-stained, continue cutting weeds and shade.
