the author is trying to tell his son the virtues of being a good and successful man in his life.
The first stanza of the poem illustrates the practice of self-confidence and expresses that, in being confident; the reader must have the courage to face unpopularity and disa…greement. This stanza advises against self-confidence that does not allow for the consideration of opposing ideas. In urging the reader to ignore doubt and make allowance for doubt Kipling creates a paradox that is characteristic of the tone of the entire poem. Line 5 advises patience, line 6 advises honesty, and line 7 advises fortitude of character. These three lines, along with the first four lines of the poem, share a common thread: they provide instruction in the maintenance of righteous behavior in the face of unrighteousness. However, in line 8, Kipling is quick to qualify his advice, telling the reader "yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise." That is, in behaving righteously, a person must avoid self-righteousness. The meter of the first stanza moves along at a set and predictable pace. If it were to be read aloud, the smooth pace of the regular meter would reflect a quietness of tone-a tone that reflects the humility Kipling seems to be advocating in the last two lines of stanza 1.

The story 'Tribute' traces the process of repentance that starts for Babuli when he receives a letter from his elder brother about the partition of his village property amongs…t the three brothers. This letter removes the strands of complacency, which have gathered around him in his pursuit to become a 'city babu'. Preoccupied with his wife and job, he had forgotten his mother, brothers and their families. Discussing the partition with his wife only reveals her greed for money and total indifference to Babuli's feelings. When he goes back to his village, the sight of his brother brings back a flood of childhood memories. His elder brother is an epitome of sacrifice and selfless love. Babuli remembers how his elder brother would carry his school bag for him, serve him his favourite fish curry prepared exclusively for him and cover Babuli with his own blanket as an extra protection on a cold winter night. His elder brother had mortgaged his watch to raise money to send Babuli for an interview to Delhi. Everything was done so ungrudgingly and with so much love! Nothing had changed him - his seven children, cattle, fields, and household responsibilities. The second brother, pressurised by his wife, had sold his soul to greed and had become adamant about the partition. Babuli compares the partition to the act of a butcher, slicing out the flesh of the domestic body which bad been nourished with years of love and care. When the partition actually takes place, the elder brother watches on stoically and dispassionately giving into the second brother's demands in everything. When the elder brother shows Babuli his share of the paddy fields, Babuli's repentance is complete. He sees the fruits of his elder brother's hard work in every crop. He realises that his only true wealth is his brother from whom he has harvested everything in life. Finally overcome with acute guilt and shame, he goes back to Bhubaneswar, leaving his share of land to his elder brother as a tribute to his brothers concern and exemplary love for him.

Rain in Summer is a short poem about all the joy and comforts the rain brings. It begins by simply stating how beautiful the rain really is; everything seems to become more al…ive and vibrant in nature. It can make something as ugly as dull and dirty streets seem to glisten with beauty. The way the rain flows reminds the author of animals scurrying freely. It clatters on rooftops and gushes in drainpipes trying desperately to push through. The pouring rain flows as swift and mighty as a raging river, but is always welcome. It has a mysterious power to soothe even the sickliest souls as it twists and turns. It brings certain calmness and people are grateful. Children run outside almost as if to greet the incoming rain. And no matter how high the waters get, it's never high enough to spoil their fun. But nothing welcomes the rain more then the dry plains and hillsides. It brings refreshing moisture to quench the dry and longing roots. The author mentions the thankfulness of the oxen as if they were being given a break from their tiresome labor. Just the smell of the rain only gives them joy and inspiration to toil on. The look in their eyes says thanks to God more effectively than any humanly spoken thank you. And as the rain beats on the farmer's crops, to the point of bending, he takes a moment to soak it all in, and in that, he sees it as no great loss. The author then sticks himself in the poem saying that only someone as open-minded as a poet can see all the beauty the rain brings. It dances freely amongst the clouds and over the abounding fields.

Poem Summary Lines 1-8 These lines describe the narrator having crossed paths with some of the Dubliners who would become leaders of the Easter Rising. Their vitality is set… against a contrasting background of the deadening places where they work - "counter or desk" - that are old and perhaps dirty, indicated by "grey / Eighteenth-century houses." The vital souls Yeats meets occasionally will be those ushering in the modemera of Ireland. But with them, the narrator engages in only small talk. Lines 9-14 In describing these future revolutionaries, the speaker emphasizes their commonness, their status as ordinary "good old boys." Or, on the other hand, their commonness might be negative, serving as grounds for mocking in the company of more cultured men at the club. But whether these would-be revolutionaries are merely common or dreadfully common, the backdrop of a drab Ireland sets off the farcical character of its idealistic people and the cynical character of its realists. Lines 15-16 These two lines jolt, employing a shock cut from a depiction of a mundane and shallow Ireland to one of dead solemnity. If the reader has no knowledge of the Rising, he or she is immediately locked in: What could this "terrible beauty" be, one that completely changed everything? On the other hand, if the reader is in the know, he or she is likely to be intrigued or impressed with the description, which consists of an oxymoron - an especially provocative one at that. Lines 17-23 This stanza marks a change from the general to the more specific. The first person discussed is Constance, or "Con," Gore-Booth who, upon marrying a count, became Countess Markiewicz. For her role as an assistant commander in the Rising, she was imprisoned, although later released (see Yeats's "On a Political Prisoner"). Yeats had met Markiewicz and her sister Eva at their mansion, Lissadell, while she was doing charity work that the poet refers to as "ignorant good will". Apparently, she could imitate the cries of hares with her young and beautiful voice as she hunted them with her dogs (harriers). It was this voice that became shrill by politics. Lines 24-26 "This man" was Patrick Pearse, the founder of a boy's school in Dublin and the Commandant-General and President of the provisional government during the Rising. He was a member of the Irish bar and was also a poet. The winged horse is Pegasus, a symbol for poetry or the poet's inspiration. Pearse was a poet and one of the leaders executed. Lines 27-31 "This other," Thomas MacDonagh, taught English Literature at University College, Dublin, and was a poet, playwright, and critic. Yeats had met him and felt that "within [MacDonagh's] own mind this mechanical thought is crushing as with an iron roller all that is organic." MacDonagh was also executed for his leadership in the Rising. Lines 32-37 "This other man" refers to Major John MacBride, the man who had married and divorced Maud Gonne, Yeats's longtime passion who refused his requests to marry several times. The "some who are near my heart" are likely Maud and her daughter, Iseult, who Yeats had, also unsuccessfully, asked to marry. While Yeats did not like MacBride, he felt he owed him tribute for his part in the Rising. Like MacDonagh and Pearse, MacBride "resigned his part" (was executed) and no longer had to act in the "casual comedy" of Ireland described in the first stanza. Thus, political events are compared to theatrical events. Lines 38-40 Because of MacBride's martyrdom, he was changed from a lout to a hero. This is part of the meaning of "terrible beauty": that even a fool could become transformed into a thing of beauty. Lines 41-56 This stanza is another rapid edit away from specific heroes, even if unnamed, to abstract observations by way of images known as metaphors. Briefly put, this stanza says that those willing to sacrifice themselves and others to principle, ideology, or by another reading, the stone that refers to Ireland herself, are those "enchanted to a stone." They become stony because they are committed, while those around them ("the living stream") react and change with differing circumstances. Or as Yeats puts it, while stones do not change, most everything else does: moving horses suddenly veer off course; riders react to their horses (as poets react to Pegasus's inspiration); birds dive, careen, and call; and clouds and their reflections shift and mutate. The softer beings of animals, clouds, and water change; that hard thing - stone - does not. Lines 57-64 The transition into the last stanza, unlike the previous changes between stanzas, is gradual. From the description of stones as obdurate and perhaps unsympathetic things, Yeats moves on to explain the reason people become like stone: through self-sacrifice. Yeats's explanation makes it easier for readers to sympathize with the insurrectionists. In line 59, Yeats himself turns to sympathy. As if pleading to heaven, the poet asks how long people must sacrifice themselves, must make a stone of their heart, in order to gain what is just. Because the question is unanswerable, Yeats says that all we can do is remember the dead ("To murmur name upon name") as when a mother utters the name of her sleeping child to make sure he awakens and remains with her. Lines 65-69 Almost as soon as Yeats enters into his analogy between recalling the martyrs and "naming" the sleeping child, he exits with the words "not night but death," because, after all, the revolutionaries are not sleeping but dead. The poet wonders whether their deaths were needless since Britain had promised Ireland a great measure of independence as soon as World War I was over. In the meantime, Ireland felt forced to furnish the British with men and food, something that angered Irish dissidents and helped drive them to revolt. Lines 70-73 The revolutionaries dreamed of an independent Ireland, but the reality is that they are dead. Now the question is what to make of them. From the revolutionaries characterized as overly hard in stanza three, to those at the beginning of stanza four who sacrificed themselves to make a stone of their heart, the revolutionaries now become, in lines 72 and 73, those who loved too much and were confused by an "excess of love." Is this a contradiction, or can it be said that the revolutionaries turned to stone because of love? Lines 74-80 The new name in these lines is James Connolly. Under Pearse, Connolly was second in command of the Republican forces and Commandant at the General Post Office, the principal location of the Republican forces. Connolly was perhaps left to the end of the poem because Yeats did not know him well, even though they had been in demonstrations together in the 1890s. Due to their revolutionary action, the four men mentioned in the poem, and presumably the others executed who were not mentioned, will be transformed from the more or less average people they were into heroes - especially "Wherever green is worn," that is, in the Emerald Isle, Ireland. By the end of the poem, even if ignorant of the Rising, readers can venture a pretty sound guess as to what "terrible beauty" at least partially refers: martyrdom
