- Q1:-Do you agree with the poetess that the art of losing is not hard to master?
- Q2:How can we master this art?
Ans:-Yes, I agree with the poetess that the art of losing isn’t hard to master. The poetess has presented a lot of examples, personal and impersonal which do make the art of losing is not hard to master
“The art of losing isn’t hard to master
So many things seems filled with the intent
To be lost that their loss is no disaster”
The poetess means to say that this is very easy to learn. Because there are so many things that are ready to write that man may lose them. Actually, the main purpose of the poetess to write the poem is to teach “how to become thankful, contented and patient’ in life. When man loses some thing, he must accept the loss as the will of God. The poetess even goes too far by saying that:-
I lost mother’s watch. And look; my last, or
Next-to-last, of three loved house went
The art of losing isn’t hard to master
Even she herself teaches as how to become thankful, contented and patient to the will of God. The art of losing actually is the art to become contented patience and thankful to the will of God.
She herself if gives a method to master the art of losing. She very, nicely tells the use to become contented, patient and thankful to the will of God because nobody loses one’s things willingly but things are lost by the will of God. So man should accept the loss as the decree of his fate as the poetess gives the way to master the art. She says:-
“Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
Of lost door key
And she herself further says
Then practice losing farther, losing faster
Place and names and where it was you want” FOR MORE DETAIL
