In Robert Gray’s poem

In Robert Gray’s poem, ‘Late ferry’ the protagonist’s motives for his wonder for the appealing brightness of development in Sydney Harbor has contributed in a huge part of his alteration. Consequently, through his sense of wonder, he finds that the illuminations are mentally meaningless therefore enhances a stronger knowledge of himself by seeing peace in the plainness of life. This was shown through the alliteration that refers to the remarkable appearance of the bridge, “A Busby Berkely spectacular// with thousands in frenzied, far-off”. The alliteration indirectly highlights the miniscule figure of the ferry, striding its way into a larger than life spectacular.
