Charles Harpur's 'Midsummer Noon' : A Structuralist Approach, Noel Macainsh , single work criticism
Macainsh offers a paradigmatic analysis of the poem to show a "clarity of structure" not detected by other critics. The "element of space" suggested by the title "is essentially that of a vertical dimension penetrating a horizontal". The elements of the poem all fit in relation to these axes, forming a cone shape. The poem then "moves" along these two axes as the reader proceeds from the first line to the last.
