PBC0030: social alienation

PBC 30 expresses a feeling of frustration and ennui with the society, and loss of love for both the village and the city. It is associated with the “non-place” or liminal space of the road. The frustration with current events is typically in pro-revolutionary poems that yearn for real change. In one instance the speaker decides to grow a beard and become a hobo (W188), while in another the poet imagines riding in an open carriage through any weather to the north or the south, it does not matter (W387).
