Analysis

(2) Sea Level

"The Chimney Sweeper" is a pretty easy poem. It doesn't include any long, weird words (like eleemosynary, although these boys could certainly use some eleemosynary aid), and the sentence structure is pretty straightforward, except the occasional poetic syntax. There are a few moments where it could stray into the realm of confusing (like in the dream), but in general "The Chimney Sweeper" is a straightforward masterpiece. Sweep away.
