Hey. I'm doing an unseen poetry based on the poem 'Stop All the clocks.' I've talked about structure themes title and lanaguage and what now but I haven't talked about writers ideas (Why the poet has written this poem?") In order to get at least a C I ne
ed to include writers ideas but I just can't work out the hidden message behind the poem. All I can think off is that he written it to share his feelings of grief. Below is the poem:
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
Stop All the Clocks - Writers Ideas???
