The Door -AnalysisMiroslav Holub's poem, "The Door", is a piece designed to provoke the reader into finding the courage to take a fresh look at his or her life.

The image of just one eye instead of twp is unnatural and grotesque. The noun "face" actually serves as a connotation of ugliness. The image of a dog...
