Journal of a Disappointed Man
Themes: Work//Gender//Society + Culture
Structure: repetitive, 4 line stanzas, even line lengths - conforming to society?
Language: plain simple language..goes with ordinary, unremarkable event, flat + mechanical
Perspective: 1st person voice, Motion or alter ego? v personal
Voice: chatty + colloquial, clumsy repetition, personal but not emotional
Tone: dryly comedic and honest..very straightforward, and silent
Imagery: masculine physicality ("monsters"), "crack of doom", "wooden pile"; distinct absence of figurative imagery
Genetics - Sinead Morrissey
Themes: Family//Identity//Society + Culture
Structure: villanelle, but SM uses enjambment + half-rhymes to make sound nice; analogy between structure + twists of genetic code?
Language: semantic ambiguity, suggests unconvincing?..frequent pronouns.
Perspective: daughter, tender love poem to parents
Tone: cool and sophisticated in appearance, but underneath is a poignancy
Imagery: church - "here is a steeple" rhyme?
The Gun - Vicki Feaver
Structure: variations in stanza length..
