General Introduction

Poets are generally interested in putting across their ideas through their poems. They use words to bring out the human dimensions relating to joyful and tragic events, incidents or situations. Poets also use poetry as a channel to teach, educate or inform society and individuals about values and important issues or concerns. Poems that are used to educate, inculcate or nurture values are didactic in nature. They have a goal in educating people or teaching some moral lessons.  

In the poem “IF” by Rudyard Kipling, the persona advises his son on important values. He explains to his son that there are important values and virtues. He teaches him the value of life. He tells him that there are important principles, values and qualities that make up a good person. These qualities are important to succeed and be triumphant in life. The persona is very observant and reflects on life to advise his son to understand his strengths and weaknesses. He tells his son what he should and should not do to become a man. The persona wishes for his son to become a man with good values, principles and virtues.  

GETTING CONNECTED WITH THE POEMS


Poets are generally interested in putting across their ideas through their poems. They do this, through their observations, reflections and feelings based on their experiences. They wish to share their perceptions and experiences with people or the readers. They use words to bring out the human dimensions and what they go through in their lives. These are rich experiences that make readers appreciate their work and interact with the poems.

The poem “IF” is about life’s journey and how to distinguish between good and bad qualities in humans. In “IF” a father gives his son some advice on how to lead a good life by appreciating and practising good virtues, moral values, and upholding good principles in life.
