Compare how a person?s culture is shown to be important in ?Hurricane Hits England?
and in one other poem.

In 'Hurricane Hits England' (Hurricane) and 'Search For My Tongue' (SFMT), the importance of culture is addressed. However, both poems tackle this theme in different ways. In 'Hurricane', culture's significance is shown by her relief upon discovering that the 'earth is the earth'. Relief is also shown in SFMT in relatation to her culture. However, the cause for her relief is discovering that she hasn't forgotten her mother tongue.

Language in both poems is used to show the importance of culture to the poets. In 'Hurricane', the poet doesn't feel like she fits in in England, but the hurricane 'brought her closer to the landscape'. Her repition of 'talk to me' almost sounds like a religious chant, emphasisng the hurricane's importance to her. This is furtber shown by the Gods of winds and storms being mentioned. We empathise with Nichols because she felt like a 'frozen lake' before the hurricane came, showing her discomfort of being in a different culture. SFMT also uses language. The poet feels that forgetting her mother tongue means losing an important part of her culture. She shows her disgust at this thought by saying that the language 'rots' and 'dies' which produces horrific imagery. In contrast to this, when she realises that she still dreams in Gujarati - meaning she hasn't forgotten the beloved language - she shows her relief by usoing more plant connotations; this time by using beautiful imagery as it 'blossons' when 'it grows back'. I think the extended metaphor of the tongue being a plant is effective; a plant would die in the wrong environment just as a foreign language would 'die' (be forgotten) in a an environment with a different language.

Structure is another method used. In 'Hurricane', the first section of the poem is written in third person. This shows how the poet feels distant from herself as a result of feeling alien in England. However, as the poem goes on and the 'reasurring' hurricane reminds her that 'the earth is the earth', it 'breaks the frozen lake' within her. This shows that her cold, unemotional state caused by the alienation she faces has ended. SFMT uses structure in a different way. The poem is written in three stanzas: two written in England, one written in Gujarati. This could possibly represent how Gujarati is 'embedded' within her as a person, just as it is embedded within the poem and how it will always be a part of her. I think this is an effective technique in further emphasing the point that, contrary to her concerns, she hasn't forgotten the language.

In conclusion, both poems use a range of methods to show culture's importance. I think that SFMT is the most sucessful out of the two poems because it produced the greatest emotional response from me. After reading the poem, I felt empathy towards the poet after seeing the worry and concern being in a different culture causes. I also felt ignorant as I was unaware of the importance of people's mother tongue has as I've always lived in an English speaking country.

Nope...

You can just brag your way into getting it...

1. Say you need extra time
2. I did some test, they didn't tell me what it was for, but it was OBVIOUSLY a test of speed, so I purposely wrote slow.
3. Got extra time
4. Profittt

I didn't need it, but the hour and 45 min exam you get 25% extra time so you get about 25/26 minutes extra, that's about 1/2 sides of A4 if you're rushing towards the end of an exam...

How does the poet present conflict in .Not my Business? Compare his methods with the ways conflict is presented in one other poem.

‘Not my Business’ and ‘Half Caste’ both include the theme of conflict. However, both poets address this theme in different ways. In ‘Not My Business’, the poet regularly witnesses injustice in regard to the violent authority in his country but turns a turns a blind eye, fearing the consequences. Whereas in ‘Half Caste’, Agard approaches the controversial subject of racism and offensive language in a humorous and light hearted way.

Both poems effectively use language to present conflict. In ‘Not my Business’, imagery is successfully used to convey the violent nature of the military regime. He describes how they ‘beat him soft like clay’ showing the immoral, aggressive and forceful methods used. The poet then uses a metaphor to describe the ‘waiting jeep’ as they ‘stuffed him down the belly’. This gives the jeep a predatory animal characteristic, which could perhaps show the savage techniques used which have no placed in a ‘civilised’ modern world. ‘Half-Caste’ uses language a different way to approach conflict. Agard uses repetition of the word ‘half’ to emphasise the ridiculousness of the derogatory term ‘half-caste’. He demands the reader – “Explain yuself” – which he also uses repetitively. The effect this has on the reader is guilt as ‘explain yuself’ has an reprimanding tone to it as he presumes everyone who reads his poems uses the term ‘half-caste’. I think this is an effective technique as it emphasises the offense the word has on people, which I think would persuade people, in future, to not use the term.

Structure is also used to convey conflict. In ‘Not my Business’, the poem is split into four stanzas. The first three stanzas feature three people being taken away in the jeep and then the last stanzas is the persona being taken away. These events take place at different times in each stanzas: “one morning”, “one night”, “one day” and “one evening”. This shows that the injustice can happen at any time of the day and shows the random occurrences of the visits, adding to the fear as they live in suspense. The first three stanzas also feature the poet’s attempt to justify his ignorance:
“What business of mine is it
So long as they don’t take the yam
From my savouring mouth?”
Each of these explanations are indented from the text above describing the attacks, perhaps showing how he feels unaffected by the actions and he doesn’t want to get involved. This emphasises his ignorance and selfishness as he watches his neighbours get unfairly treated, ridding me of any possible empathy felt towards him.
Structure in half-caste is also used to present his argument. In the first stanza, standard English is used. However, in the following stanzas the poem uses phonetic Caribbean dialect with occasional standard English. This emphasises the message that he is from two cultures, the Carribean and England, but he is still a whole person, just as the poem is still a full poem. This could have also been used as an argument against society’s small-mindedness. Why should he be viewed as ‘half-caste’ (insinuating that he is a ‘half-caste human being’) and why should his version of English be viewed any different from standard English. I think this is an effective technique as it encourages the reader to question society’s judgements which is what Agard was aiming for.

In ‘Not my Business’, the poets thoughts are that ‘so long as they don’t take the yam’, he’ll ignore the antics. This shows his insensitive and selfishness. However, after witnessing the violence of the authorities it is clear that it is his fear controlling him and he is only acting out of self-preservation. ‘Half-Caste’’s poet’s thoughts are a lot different. In contrast to the fearful persona in ‘Not my Business’, Agard is much more light hearted and humorous but with a strong underlying message. His methods highlight the ridiculousness of the term and embarrass the reader of the stupidity of the word. I think this is a more effective technique than approaching the subject with an angry tone as it creates more empathy towards mixed race people.

In conclusion, I think that both poems are successful in presenting conflict. However, I think the humorous tone of ‘Half-Caste’ was much more effective at engaging me, as a reader, and it provoked an emotional response from me as I felt empathy towards people of mixed race who are referred to using this term by people who do not realise the insult beneath it of them being half a person.

Compare how a person?s culture is shown to be important in ?Hurricane Hits England?
and in one other poem.
If I am gradiing this, it would be a low B.

You should have specified the use of metaphors, onomatopeias, similes (language devices used) in the poems i.e. mentioning that a language device was used (In SMFT, Bhatt used metaphor to ... ). These are bonus points as the examiner can see that you are able to identify and distinguish these language devices apart.

Remember that you're being marked for your spellings as well - but I think these are just typos.

For SFMT, you could say that how the foreign language was put in the middle - you could use it to signify as if the language is being contained by the English language.. OR you could use it to say that the mother language reminds her of home and compare this to HHE by saying that the Hurricane reminds her of home as well. Then you can say that these reminds the poets that even if you are in a different culture, your own culture will always be a part of you. (I think here you can get bonus points , coz a) you compared the poems and b) you linked it back to the title.)

That's another point that I should tell you. YOU SHOULD COMPARE AND CONTRAST and ALWAYS LINK THE POEMS BACK TO THE QUESTION. sorry for the caps. But they are really important.

I just love doing essays and I myself struggled to do these at first! I got a A in my English Lit (A* in exams, B in Coursework) and despite it is not high enough to TSR's standard, I am proud of it as I worked really hard to get it. (I only did GCSE English in a year - I have to do it this way coz I just arrived in the UK at the time and was a year late).

Good luck with yours and keep practising!

If I was to mark this, solid A (even A* hmmmm).

This is what I meant with the identifying language devices. You managed to say stuffs like, the repetition... metaphor etc... I like you connective words as well - pleasant to the readers.

You could add in Half Caste that Agard's use of thin/narrow structure signifies people's narrowmindedness (just to get some points for structure).

I think this is better than the first one. Good luck!

I'm not proud with of this one. You can really see the difference between the quality of the ones I handwrite (original one posted on first page and the one below) compared to the ones typed up (one above). So annoying.

'Half-Caste' (H-C) and 'from Unrelated Incidents' (U.I) both have strong messages of their objection to society's narrow-mindness. In H-C, Agard talks about the hidden offensive underneath the term half-caste as it implies that mixed race people are only half a person. Whereas in U.I, Leonard discusses the prejudgements people make about accents and how it affects their opinion on a person.

Language is used in both poems to reinforce the strong messages conveyed. Both poems use an alternative to Standard English; U.I used glasweigan phonetically whilst H-C used Carribean dialect also spelt phonetically. This reinforces their messages effectively but in different ways. In H-C, it reinforces the message that two cultures don't equate to an inferior or 'half' version - his poem is still a 'whole'. It also shows that two cultures can be sucessful as so in the poem with the combination of Standard English and colloquial Carribean dialect. Whereas in U.I, the dialect conveys the message that his Glasweigan accent (both literal and the phonetic version used in the poem) are not inferior to Standard English. The phonetic language could also have been used to show his rebellion against the 'standard' way in society. Another device used in H-C is repition of the word 'half': 'half of mih eye', 'half of mih ear'. This emphasises the ridulousness of the term and embarasses the reader, an effective technique. U.I used a different technique. It uses phrases such as 'yoo scruff' and 'belt up' to convey his anger towards the reader for their pre-judgements. Personally, I don't think this is an effective technique to share his opinion as instead we're offended. H-C also shows their strong feelings towards the reader. But, this time in a more relaxed tone, in contrast with U.I, we are asked to 'explain' ourselves.

Structure is also used to show strong feelings. In U.I, the poem is set out in a narrow column which looks like an autocue. This could have been used to show that newsreaders should have a range of accents. Alternatively, the narrow layout could signify society's narrow-mindness. H.C uses a different method. He uses a rhythm leading to short, sharp phrases in a jaunty rhythm to convey an angry tone. I think this is an effective technique as it sounds repremanding.

Agard and Leonard address their feelings in different ways. Agard uses a humorous tone with a strong message beath about the hidden offense of the term half-caste as it implies that someone is half a person. This is effective as it encourages the reader to question their use of half-caste and regrain from doing so in the future. Whereas Leonard's angry and agressive tone is not effective.

In conclusion, I think that H-C is the most effective poem as showing strong feelings. Its light-hearted approach at the controversial subject of racist terms created empathy and guilty as I didn't realise the offense the term 'half-caste' could cause.

B/C . Sorry to say that. Structure was way too short.. and not a lot of quotes for the language section and no mention of language devices? The thing though as well is that I have not done the other poem (the Unrelated Incidents) so I cannot really help you with points you can say on there. What was the question for this essay by the way, you seem to have miss that out..? Let me know what it is and I will tell you points that you can use for the Half Caste.

Thank you for taking your time to read these.
The question was "Compare the methods the poet uses to show strong feelings in ?Half-Caste? with the methods another poet uses to show strong feelings in one other poem". It's so frustrating how much worse I do when I handwrite the answers compared to when I type them. :/ Lol

Again, thank you so much.
