The Rebel by D.J Enright Poem Summary

The Rebel Poem Summary


In this poem, the poet, D.J. Enright, describes the likes, dislikes and actions of a rebel as contrasted with a sensible and sane man. The attitude of a rebel is contradictory and non-conforming. In it lies the very characteristics and psychology of the rebel. The rebel is a troubled individual. His deviations from the normal are indicative, of his mental approach towards life and society.


He grows long hair while all others have short and vice versa. Similarly he dislikes talk during the lesson, prefers fantastic clothes to uniform. He loves cats while others love dogs. He enjoys reading a look in seclusion in contrast to others while they go to meeting. In short, the rebel negates the normal in every respect and walk of life.


The poet has not employed the technical terms yet he has successfully identified the rebel from his deviant behaviour. Although at the end of the poem he says:

It is very good that we have rebels

You may not find it very good to be one.

Note: In the mathematics classes, I use an interactive whiteboard for various purposes: to optimize the learning process through a variety of types of lessons learned, to provide visibility in the study of various objects, for example, geometric shapes (drawing, elements, properties, etc.), to reduce the time spent in solving various problems (graphical method of solving equations and systems, solving text problems: diagrams, figures, tables), for integration with the following disciplines: physics (the mechanical meaning of the derivative, the transformation of graphs of trigonometric functions), mathematics with computer science (construction and study of function graphs, construction of diagrams) The very first step in using the interactive whiteboard is the application of the training programs that are available in each school.
