    The imageries used in the poem are mostly through metaphors and similes. The poet then compares the sky to a canopy. He says that the land becomes a map of everything that has happened over the course of the century. It seems to embody the dead century. The sharp features of the land seem to be the Century’s dead body and the cloud works as a canopy covering up the body. The simile of the thick “tangled bine stems” soaring the sky as a broken lyre adds more to the poet’s sorrow and grief around him.
