Written by Julia Wolf
There is only one character in the poem – the narrator himself. He is revealing his thoughts and emotions, and it might be concluded that he is not a young man, but not also very old, maybe of a middle-aged person. All the day he has spent working, as there is a village seen from the window in can be assumed that he may have some small farm, and has spent all the day working there, taking care after the animals. But at the evening he wants to forget about daily preoccupations and listen to some good simple poem, which assumes that he is an educated person, is familiar with the works of “old masters” and has an ability to analyse these works. He is a romantic person and tends not to complicate the things.
