Text Commenta ries
Text 1: `The Butcher's Shop'
This poem is by Angela Topping, a poet, critic and writer who taught English for many years,
taken from her 2007 collection The Way We Came. This collection `reflects on how time plays
tricks, and investigates the past in startling ways, both personal and public' (see web page
http://sicttasd.tripod.com/angelatopping/the-way-we-came.html).…read more

The butcher's `meaty' smile also gives a sense that he is heavy, fleshy, well fed, and this aligns with the
description of the images in his shop as `smug'. The cattle and sheep that `prance' on his tiles are images

reflecting to some extent an autobiographical experience. The poem is reminiscent,
thoughtful, recalling different attitudes to `eating out', that is, dining in restaurants, the title a
loaded phrase that holds within it a great deal of the symbolic significance of such an event.…read more

Adventures into rehearsed but unknown living...
There is a strong sense of paradox here. `Adventures' should be spontaneous and exciting, but here they
are initiations into set patterns of idealized middle-class behaviour, set ideas about what makes for good
restaurant dining: `rehearsed... living'. They are only really adventures in the sense that for the child they
are initiations into previously `unknown' experiences.
Throughout the poem, the gradually maturing poet feels dominated by her parents, in clearly Freudian
terms.…read more
