Abstract: This research study explores the significance of using symbols in poetry titles. Taking A. E. Houseman’s poem “Farewell to Barn and Stack and Tree,” the study explores the geographical and social background that is created using symbolism in the title. This study also analyses the contribution these symbolic elements of the title make towards the better understanding of the poem. Though there is a plethora of studies conducted on the significance of symbolism in poetry, very few have focused on the typical usage of symbolism in the poetry titles. Moreover, this selected text remains unexplored in terms of the understanding of the title. By using textual analysis method, and by the application of the understanding of symbolism, the study is taken forward with an approach to explore further. The analysis understands, that symbolism used in title influences readers’ understanding of the poem in terms of the background, and that is, the Barn as the symbol of home, stack as the workplace and tree, the social space.
