What is the central idea of the poem Animals?

1 Answer

  1. Walt Whitman, the poet, compares the feeling of being with animals and humans and admits that he feels more at ease and at home with animals than with his fellow humans. Humans have gone insane in their pursuit of material goods. They’re a jumble of complexities. They have nightmares and mourn for their sins because their conscience is impure. Animals, on the other hand, are satisfied, tranquil, and self-contained. They aren’t motivated by anything other than their meals. They don’t need to worship God since they never feel guilty or sinful. In the distant past, our ancestors exchanged those signs of love and understanding. Unfortunately, mankind has permanently lost those values and signs of love and compassion.
