What does a teacher mean when he or she wants you to interpret something? My standing on interpretation remains on how your mind views things and logically understand what the text or person is saying. When interpreting things people think about the causes and effects something is does and what the author is trying to get through whether that be a message, life lesson, or a joke.

Ezra Pound:

History class is boring

I know people be snoring

Pound’s poems have history knowledge you can be exploring

His poems are unconventional and don’t follow the free minded poet way

But they teach us history about Chinese and Japanese history and won’t bore your day

Instead of poems…
