The idea of simplicity to elicit a sense of imagery in “The Red Wheelbarrow” has essentially been beaten down again and again through repetitive analyses. However, there is more to this poem than just that, and it lies in symbolism of the wheelbarrow. Based on the first line of the poem and the animation in the video above, there is a broader way of thinking about what the wheelbarrow actually resembles, as opposed to noticing that it is just a dormant object covered in rainwater. In fact, the red wheelbarrow serves to elicit the significance of the working class in American society. William Carlos Williams was met by these average, everyday folk through his practice as a physician. Due to his experiences, he wanted to portray this particular aspect of society through his poetry. “The Red Wheelbarrow,” is not simply an object beside some white chickens. The wheelbarrow is the medium through which the hardworking, and perhaps struggling human beings that are trapped in the network of society, use to perform everyday tasks and elicit that sense of putting in the, “elbow grease,” necessary to maintain a living during Williams’ time. The focus on the working class as a central theme in Williams’ poetry is something to be appreciated by all.
