However, music also has repercussions of suicide from the sentimentality and despair embedded into the music. Unlike in Invisible Man where the narrator uses music and lyrics to untangle the knots of doubts about his social and racial dislocation, Mr. Shimerda in My Ántonia fails in his attempt to negotiate with the music to define and organize the formlessness of life on the prairie. In this case, where the intent of music fails to provide comfort and epiphany, music thus offers a dark likelihood towards self-destruction. This is so in Mr. Shimerda as his life is a composition of sorrowful events from the loss of his friends; Pavel who dies after an accident at the barn, and Peter who moves away in search of a new life. Their respective departures have a grievous “effect [on] old Mr. Shimerda” (Cather, 39) who broods and wallow in sadness in solidarity.

Biographers and scholars of Brahms generally claim that this unique compositional process of this work caused by his pastoral mood of summer vacation in 1877. However, it can be perceived that their claim has been misconstrued due to Brahms’ self-critical fastidiousness and usual long compositional process for work.

Although I am not necessarily into classical concerts, I really enjoyed the serene tone that Updike set in place when writing this poem. The poem gives off such an ‘at peace’ vibe and the way it is written, Updike’s thoughts are conveyed smoothly. The theme of this poem is appreciation for music because when Updike says, “that held the holy glowing fantasy together.” , we can clearly see that the way the instruments come together and the way they make him feel. The colors Updike refers to in the poem like, “the vigor from the red, the blazing blue, so that the listening eye saw suddenly the thick black lines” are all examples of symbolism.
