This particular excerpt, makes part of the poem “Aunt Imogen”, written by Edwin Arlington Robinson, and which was published inside his bigger work “Collected Poems”, in 1921. In essence, “Aunt Imogen” talks about the experiences lived by three young children and their mother every time their beloved Aunt Imogen, visits them once a year. However, the poem also remarks the difference between the woman Imogen wants to project to others, the funny and carefree person, and her true self, which is riddled with sadness for the fact that she cannot have what her sister has; motherhood. In stanza 4, the poem, however, shows that there is one person who is not swayed by the false self shown by Imogen and can see the truth of her heart; Young George. Through his eyes, and words, Imogen sees the true image inside her and seems to be reborn by the experience as she understands her desires and wishes and accepts that they will not be fulfilled. In this particular piece from that stanza, what the words of the child cause on Imogen is a feeling of pain, deep pain, as she is made forcefully aware of the truth inside and the sadness that has always been there, belying the image she wants others to see.

10. At the end of the hallway, she paused suddenly, unsure of which way to turn. The left fork was long and dark. She could hear the foreboding laughter of children and the melody of a piano. But to the right… the right was lit with a weak candle that was already fluttering in an unseen wind. Taking a deep breath, she turned right.
