FIRST YEAR (POETRY BOOK III)

NOTES ON STANZA WRITING
(By: Prof. Saleem Parvez , Faisalabad)

19- A MAN OF WORDS AND NOT OF DEEDS
REFRENCE: These lines have been taken from the poem, “A Man Of Words And Not of Deeds” by Charles Perrault, translated by Robert Samber.
CONTEXT: The poet states that a man, who always talks but does not do any practical work, is useless for his society. He should not be a talkative one. To the poet, a man must be a man of action, so as to be useful for his society, which is his foremost duty.
EXPLANATION: In these lines the poet tells that,
An idle man leads an animals and meaningless life. His life in the world is marked with despair. He cannot achieve his goal. It is only a man of action who achieves his aim in life. A person who simply goes on talking lacks practical knowledge of the world. His life is like a garden full of weeds.
