The Man with the Hoe and Other Poems

The Man with the Hoe Markhams poem describes a hopeless laborer who is treated more like a beast than a human being. The poet describes the man with the hoe as a pitiful and pitiable figure. He is bowed down 'with the weight of centuries' and carries the 'burden of the world' on his back. Continuous, crushing labor has so dehumanized the farmer that he has become a 'thing that grieves not and that never hopes. In this complex stanza, points are being made in reference to a Biblical allusion to Psalm "You have made [humans] a little lower than the Angels and crowned [humans] with glory and honor" Psalm To describe laborers. The bent body of the man in the poem "The Man with the Hoe" signifies the crushing labor the working man must carry out to survive.
