Q: What does give a thesis of sorts mean?
A: Of course! The writer of the analysis just meant that in a particular line of the poem the poet provided the argument/main idea of his work. Since poems are relatively ambiguous (could be interpreted in different ways), they added "of sorts" because I'm sure the poet didn't clearly state his thesis, but rather expressed it through a metaphor or some other literary device. "Of sorts" means that something is not exactly following the rules or does not fit into a specific category, but is very close to the intended purpose/meaning. So he just meant that the poet provided a thesis, but it wasn't elaborated on or directly stated, only implied or expressed through a literary device.
