Joseph Campbell's poem The Emigrant presents us with the inside view of an emigrant who is going to leave his native land in a few hours and before this, has a farewell party with relatives and neighbors. The alternating feelings and suppressed sadness are reflected in Buchenberg's composition which skilfully oscillates between over-exaggerated boisterousness and despair.
