1.       The title ‘To the doctor who treated the raped baby and who felt such despair’ is unusual in that it has a long title compared to other titles of a poem. The content of the poem mostly presents how thankful the citizens are to the doctor in saving the baby. It is effective in relation to the poems content because the doctor knew, through diagnosis that the baby is raped and he felt that he must fulfill his duty as a doctor by taking good care of the baby. 2.       The word ‘and’ is repeated at the beginning of seven different lines in the poem. It shows that the repetition indicates how grateful trust we have place on the doctors when many of us cannot do what he does. It is to save a life in the most desperate of circumstances. It maintains that we are all grateful that we have doctors too treat us and we are allowed to sleep well. 3.       The speaker is trying to help the raped baby by treating and taking good care of the baby. The doctor knew, through diagnosis that the baby is raped and he felt that he must fulfill his duty as a doctor by taking good care of the baby.
