Analysis: What's Up With the Title?

The poem "Oread" is spoken by—surprise!—an Oread (and a very commanding one at that). The title introduces us to our speaker in a very direct way; there's no time for any beating around the bush in this tiny little poem.

For more on our Oread, check out what we've got to say about her in the "Summary" section.
