What is the central idea of the poem We are seven?

1 Answer

  1. The speaker states that youthful innocence leads to a blissful but limited understanding of the world, while adults are left to cope with life’s harsh realities. Death, according to the speaker, is something that definitively separates individuals from life. The little girl, on the other hand, believes that death is a transition of life rather than its loss, that it is part of a greater system, and that the dead are therefore intimately connected to the living. Throughout the poem, these two views are maintained in tension, with no clear conclusion as to the essence of death and what it means to those who are left behind.
