Portrait in Georgia

by Jean Toomer

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(6) Tree Line

This poem carries with it chapters of complex history. It's gruesome, confusing, and very, very ambiguous. But it's also a stunning example of how poetry can create layers of meaning that we can't even imagine. So Shmoopers, it's well worth the trek.
