Analysis

(2) Sea Level

Since it was meant to be conversational, this poem is really accessible and easy to follow for most readers. The most challenging thing about reading O'Hara's poem is that it's addressed to a "you" who obviously knows a thing or two about visual art. Still, if works by Rembrandt or Marino Marini aren't hanging on your wall or standing in your foyer, Shmoop's here to get you up to speed. With just a few clicks, we can know as much about art to effectively fake it through the poem. Yay, us.
