To our Poet & Creator of all those in this blog,
Why the Eagle? He is mentioned in book one of The House of Fame, and now in great detail in book two…. Are we, the Medieval audience to interpret this eagle as youth and rejuvenation? Are we to see ourselves as renewed through your work? Or does it simply display how you will be young and alive every time someone reads what you have left in your legacy? Maybe we should see the narrator as refreshed and renewed by his dreams, as a good night’s sleep can make one feel young and alive again….Perhaps I am looking too far into this and you simply chose the Eagle because he is a massive bird who soars…
What do my fellow pilgrims think? Am I so worn down from the fields that I long for youth again and that’s why I interpret the Eagle in this way? Or am I on to something??
