Analysis of "Moise Poeme (Moses)"

Enter subhead content here

Alfred de Vigny's, "Moise Poeme (Moses)" is an adventurous poem of Moses being the privileged holder of a great power. Vigny describes moses as being lonely and tired, wanting only to rest. He contends to God that his deed is done and that he must not suffer any longer. This poem is a view of both adversarialism and mutuality between master and slave.
     This poem is truly epic when comparing to Percy Shelley's, Ode to Heaven. There is an immediate comparison to God and to the unknown when faced with death. Moses' journey has ended and is the epitome of what all those who know of heaven strive to achieve.
