The Wheelbarrow in Williams’ The Red Wheelbarrow’ most likely implies the beauty in everyday things. The wheelbarrow was one of the implements that the farmer used to carry out his activities. In his poem, Williams used the red wheelbarrow to symbolize the beauty of everyday things. Thus, it also implies the importance of agriculture and farm labourers. To that end, the red wheelbarrow can also be seen as a symbol for perception.
