The Sweet Menu.
- Written in chronological structure and made up of unrhyming couplets.
- Throughout the poem, Jeremy Hughes always refers back to the chair and the fact that it's empty, he does this through repetition.
- There is also evidence of indefinate/definate articals. "There is a" is indefinate. and "the bottle" is deffinate.
- The us eof "Would you like to see the sweet menu?" being written in italics highlights how he speaks transactional , meaning he only talks when he it is required, therefore it's for a purpose.
- "It hasn't come to much" foregrounds the poem.
- CERBEAL means thinking things through. Which is evident through 'The Sweet Menu'

- The phrase "that unless he had another basin of gruel perdiem" The boy said this which indicates that he's well educated but now he's in the workhouse. Which is a representative of times.
- It's set into three sections the first setting the scene, second is action and the third is the result.
- Oliver relates to the chef as "sir" which highlights his status and how it's polite.
- "child as he was" suggests that the childs behaviour is abnormal.
