"Rajah in a Low Back Chair"

After reading this poem "Rajah in a Low Back Chair" , im still trying to figure out exactly what it means. Thos. L Williams quoties There in the Dusk Beyond the lamp's gleam, in a corner of twlight-there to dream, My hands on the Radio's glistening dials, My eyes had closed, across the miles, Music at my touch. This part of the poem is very interesting because it seems that Rajah has the whole world at his fingers in the sense he can listen to anything he wants and see what is happening around the world. Alone in the desert sand it is just him and his radio and he can basically pretend to be whoever he wants with no one stopping him. The radio gave him time of peace and happiness at the same time. The radio we use today basically does the same thing and majority of the people today use their car sterio in order to pass time or even simply because of pleasure.

A good post but use quotation marks and proof-read before publishing.

Radio provides an escape and a chance to voyage to faraway places in our imagination. The poem is about these imaginary journeys to foreign lands. Radio can transport us around the globe even as we sit in our cars or "low-backed chairs"
