Transcript of "The Fog" Analysis

Year 8 Poetry The Fog Slowly the fog,
Hunch-shouldered with a grey face.
Arms wide, advances,
Finger-tips touching the way
Past the dark houses
And dark gardens of roses.
Up the short street from the harbour,
Slowly the fog,
Seeking, seeking;
Arms wide, shoulders hunched,
Searching, searching.
Out to the streets, to the fields,
Slowly the fog –
A blind man hunting the moon.

F.R. McCreary Slowly Gives a life-like appearance - dominating and imposing The "fog" is personified to be a person -
scary, old, hungry, evil and dark. There is an eerie atmosphere to the poem - the fog is
described as slow/creeping/evil and sinister Fog mirrors an 'old' person -
connotations of helplessness and vulnerability gives a physical appearance to the fog approaches Use of the sense of touch Repetition of the word 'dark' - reinforces the
sinister atmosphere/image Sibilance - slows the pace of the poem Repetition Gives the impression that the fog
is hunting or trying to find something The search widens from the
"streets" to the "fields" Repetition The hyphen is used to signal a change The audience sypathises with the fog -
they feel pity Futile search - will never
catch it. It is ongoing and
never ending. The Fog Slowly the fog,
Hunch-shouldered with a grey face.
Arms wide, advances,
Finger-tips touching the way
Past the dark houses
And dark gardens of roses.
Up the short street from the harbour,
Slowly the fog,
Seeking, seeking;
Arms wide, shoulders hunched,
Searching, searching.
Out to the streets, to the fields,
Slowly the fog –
A blind man hunting the moon.

F.R. McCreary Questions - "The Fog" 1.The fog becomes a person. Name some of the characteristics taken on by the fog.
