Daedalus and Icarus Poem by Edward Field

 In the poem that makes use of the greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus by the author named Edward Field. This poem talks about Daedalus's son Icarus death but he survive by swimming to the city where he rented a house and dercribes how he fly with wings. In this poem, Mr. Field uses literary devices by adapting the Icarus myth to a comtemporary setting: imagery, personification, tone, pont of view. On line 11-14, " Never dreaming that the gray, respectable suit conclealed arms that had controlled huge wings nor, that those sad, defeated eyes had once compelled the sun". it uses personification by describing Icarus arms from the melted wax
